Police have been accused of crippling crime rates with false claims that they deter people from joining gangs.
And a recent study from a leading criminologist says a recent nationwide survey of police departments in New York found officers are no more likely to arrest someone for a crime if they are trained as a cop.
The study, by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, looked at more than 1,000 police departments nationwide.
It found that police officers, as a group, were more likely than other New Yorkers to say they deter crime.
The report did not identify the specific reasons police officers reported the ability to deter crime, but it said it was a result of the training they received as police officers.
In other words, the training could lead to a false belief that the police can prevent crime.
Brennan’s study concluded that police training was not associated with a reduction in crime.
Instead, the researchers found that a higher level of police training may reduce the chance that people would actually join a crime group.
“The evidence does not suggest that training has a deterrent effect on crime, and it is unclear whether this effect is due to training itself, or to the fact that officers have received more training than the general population,” the study said.
However, the Brennan study said it found the effect of training on crime was not statistically significant.
It found that, on average, the average rate of arrest for a felony was 16.6% in 2013 and the rate for a misdemeanor was 15.6%.
The Brennan study did not say how much training officers received.
But in addition to the training officers receive, the report found the likelihood that they would be arrested increased with their level of training.
As for why police officers are sometimes called to help solve crimes, the study did say that the training may help them identify and capture criminals who are “prone to committing more serious crimes,” but that there is little evidence to suggest that these people are more likely.
The Brennan report found that people who were not trained to do so were less likely to commit crimes, and that this was also true for criminals who were known to police officers but were not identified.
But the study found that training to detect drug dealers and other criminals was associated with less likely arrests.
On average, people who did not receive training to identify drug dealers were more than four times more likely for them to be arrested than people who received training.
And people who reported having no prior criminal convictions were more then three times more than people with previous criminal convictions.
Overall, people with training were about five times more accurate than those who did have criminal convictions in identifying drug dealers.
People with criminal convictions, the analysis found, were almost four times as likely to be stopped by police for a drug offense as those who were identified as drug dealers or drug offenders.
Another key finding from the study was that people with less than a year of police experience were nearly three times as more likely as people with a four-year degree to be reported as being a danger to themselves or others.
When it comes to arresting someone for drug offences, the results are even more discouraging.
About 70% of the time, people stopped by the police reported they were not guilty.
About 45% of people stopped for a traffic violation were not arrested.
About a third of those stopped for other traffic violations were not apprehended.
And only 14% of those arrested were found guilty.
While the study notes that the majority of people arrested were innocent, the authors say it is important to keep in mind that it is difficult to pinpoint exactly how many innocent people are being arrested.
The authors say that this could be because the police are making mistakes, especially in the detection of people who may have committed serious crimes, or it could be that innocent people have been unfairly targeted for the police to stop them.
The Brennan Center also released a report last year that found that policing practices have become far more violent in recent years.
In the past five years, there has been an increase in violent crime in New Jersey, Florida and Pennsylvania, among other places.
It also found that the proportion of officers who are black, Hispanic or Asian is growing.
And it found that there was a significant increase in the use of racial profiling by the federal government.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the report’s conclusions are alarming and calls on the federal and state governments to review how policing policies and practices have changed.
Police and prosecutors have defended the training programs, arguing that they are necessary to help officers recognize people with mental illness and drug addiction.
The police training is being used in many places, said Sgt. James Hogue, a spokesman for the New York City Police Department.
It’s been used in some of the largest jurisdictions in the country.
He said that many police departments are now using it as a way to get better at identifying people who might be dangerous. Hogue said
