Dr. Sharon Chamard and Dr. Troy Payne, Justice Center faculty, presented "A Tale of Two Cities' Attempts to Lower Calls for Service via Civil Remedies"  at the Environmental Criminology and Crime Analysis (ECCA) conference in the Netherlands in June.  The research compared the count of police incidents before and after a notice of excessive police incidents at properties in Anchorage and Green Bay, Wisconsin.

ECCA is an annual, invitation-only symposium attended by an international group of researchers and practitioners engaged in situational crime prevention, crime science, intelligence-led policing, and problem-oriented policing. In 2008, the Justice Center hosted the 17th annual ECCA Symposium on the UAA campus.
