This study examined the impact that a six-month broken windows style policing crackdown on disorder had on residents of three California cities: Colton, Ontario and Redlands. The study investigated four questions: <list type="ordered"> <itm> What is the impact of broken windows policing on fear of crime among residents of the targeted hot spots? </itm> <itm>What is the impact of broken windows policing on police legitimacy in the targeted hot spots? </itm> <itm>What is the impact of broken windows policing on reports of collective efficacy in the targeted hot spots?</itm> <itm> Is broken windows policing at hot spots effective in reducing both actual and perceived levels of disorder and crime in the targeted hot spots? </itm></list> To answer these questions, a block randomized experimental design was employed to deliver a police intervention targeting disorder to 55 treatment street segments with an equal number of segments serving as controls. Data were collected on the type and amount of crime before, during, and after implementation as well as interviews of residents before and after the crackdown in order to gauge their perception of its success
