Broken Windows Theory

Criminological theory proposing that visible signs of crime, anti-social behavior and civil disorder create an urban environment that encourages more crime and disorder, and elevation to more serious crimes. Broken Windows Theory thus suggests that policing methods that target minor crimes (e.g., vandalism, public drinking fare evasion/theft of services) controls and environment of order and lawfulness, and prevents more serious crimes.

Giuliani refers to McCarthy as one of the original architects of COMPSTAT, which is a is a combination of management, philosophy, and organizational management tools for police departments. Initially, COMPSTAT was modeled after the broken windows theory, whereby minor crimes would be addressed in order to reduce major crimes. However, COMPSTATE evolved into a system whereby police personnel productivity was measured and individual police personnel are held accountable for spikes in crime.
