Doug Berman has this post at Sentencing Law & Policy on a dispute about crime rates in Denver. In part, his excerpt of the Denver Post article:
Denver's top two law enforcement officials disagree on the answer to what ought to be a simple question: Is violent crime up or down?
Police Chief Robert White and District Attorney Mitch Morrissey aren't quibbling over minor details; they have a nearly 18 percentage-point difference in opinion about the way crime is trending. Experts say their disagreement underscores the complexities of measuring and interpreting crime trends in a major city.
