Dr. Payne publishes book review in Security Journal

Dr. Troy Payne, Justice faculty, published a book review in the current issue of Security Journal, Vol. 28, Issue 1, 2015.

His review discusses Policing Problem Places: Crime Hot Spots and Effective Prevention, edited by Michael Tonry and Norval Morris.  Dr. Payne notes that this book is "best understood as a summary of the existing research regarding geographically focused or ‘hot spots’ policing. While the book offers few new insights for readers familiar with the original research, this is the first time the research on hot spots has been collected and presented as one coherent whole."

Security Journal publishes the latest developments and techniques in security management and is a resource for security researchers and professionals.
