    A major question in policing is whether police patrol has a positive impact on crime and public safety. Former Chief of Police Cam McLay defends patrol as a form of problem-solving policing backed by community accountability. McCrary discusses the essential role that the police play in deterring and reducing crime, particularly the most violent and costly ones. Nagin considers the optimal intensity of confrontational types of proactive policing like stop, question, and frisk.
