Working With Police to Work with Neighborhoods

Mark Singer

According to Mark I. Singer, Ph.D., professor of social work at Case’s Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, police officers who get tough with neighborhood youth who are not committing any crimes are increasing, not decreasing, the potential for conflict.

Dr. Singer has been studying the effects of exposure to violence on children and adolescents for more than a decade. In sharing his expertise on violence prevention with the community, he conducts youth-focused police training with the Partnership for a Safer Cleveland, an agency that is dedicated to reducing youth violence.
