The Broken Window Theory
1. In the 1980s and 90s, many people considered New York City to be one of the most dangerous cities in the world. New York City had one of the highest violent crime rates. Gangs roamed the city streets at night looking to rob people of their wallets. Many New Yorkers did not feel that riding the subway at night was safe.
2. New York City has changed a lot over the decades. Now, it has one of the lowest violent crime rates compared to other large cities. People feel much safer walking the streets after sunset. The murder rate in New York City these days is only 18 per cent of what it was in the 1980s. This significant drop in crime shocked even the experts. But why did this happen?
3. The reasons for New York City’s lower crime rates are not so clear. Some experts believe that “The Broken Window Theory” explains this change. The Broken Window Theory was created in 1982 by two social scientists named James Wilson and George Kelling. They believed that people look for even the smallest signals about how they should behave in their environment. For example, if someone sees a broken window somewhere, it may hint that breaking other windows or other things are permitted and even encouraged. On the other hand, when an environment is clean, this signals to other people that they should behave respectfully and not commit offenses.
4. During the 1980s and 1990s, New York City authorities hired George Kelling and they put his theory to use. Under Kelling’s advice, the mayor of New York City ordered the police to crack down on petty crimes such as jaywalking and public drinking. The crime rate in New York began to fall drastically. Not everyone agrees that this decrease was due to The Broken Window Theory but it may have been one cause.
