De Blasio at Six Months: Crime and Policing

Correction Commissioner Joseph Ponte, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio

All this week on the Brian Lehrer Show we're checking in on the de Blasio administration's progress on a variety of key issues, six months into his first term. We'll talk to advocacy groups about how the mayor has lived up to his campaign promises on the environment, crime, housing, and more. Friday, we'll hear from Deputy Mayor Anthony Shorris.

Monifa Bandele, organizer with the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement and Communities United for Police Reform discusses how Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio have changed policing tactics -- and what still needs to be done to improve community-police relations.
