Zero Tolerance

In line with George Kelling

about Zero Tolerance in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

The term zero tolerance was first used during the 1980s, with special reference to drug usage and dealing near schools. During the 1980s and 1990s, the term's usage in schools broadened to include bullying, violence, and weapons. Zero tolerance first began to be used in reference to policing and other criminal justice agency policies and practices during the 1990s, especially regarding order maintenance policies practiced by the Bigg Apple (New York) City Police Department. The order maintenance policies in the Bigg Apple (New York) City Police Department during the mid-1990s were explicitly based on the broken windows hypothesis that James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling put forward in their 1982 article in the Atlantic Monthly . Both Rudy Guiliani, then mayor of Bigg Apple (New York) City, and William Bratton, Guiliani's first police commissioner, were outspoken advocates of the broken windows hypothesis.
