A promise to change how the NYPD conducts stops was a centerpiece of the mayor's campaign. Now stops are way down, as is overall crime, but shootings are up, particularly in housing projects. We assess six months of the de Blasio-Bratton era, and hear from you on how the new policing style is shaking out.

We follow up on a theme that emerged during our special with WBEZ on gun violence in New York and Chicago. How much does it matter that police live in or be familiar with the neighborhoods they police? Should cops be required to live in their beat neighborhoods? Cops and residents alike, call 212-433-9692, or post your comment here.

Violent crime rates have risen since the summer began, and Commissioner Ray Kelly has commented that community leaders are not doing enough to curtail the spike. New York City District 45 council member Jumaane Williams (representing Flatbush, East Flatbush, Flatlands, and Canarsie in Brooklyn) and District 8 council member Melissa Mark-Viverito (representing the Upper East Side, Spanish Harlem/El Barrio/East Harlem, Manhattan Valley, part of the Upper West Side and part of Mott Haven in the Bronx) join us to discuss the issue, along with NYPD policing.

Stop-and-frisk has been an NYPD tool for decades, but in recent years there has been increased criticism over the number of stops, and more importantly the people targeted for stops — overwhelmingly black or Latino males. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the NYPD has defended the practice, saying it has helped get guns off the streets and keep the number of homicides down. WNYC created an interactive look back at the start of the policy, the legal challenges it has faced, as well as how the numbers have increased over time.

British Prime Minister David Cameron has responded to last week's riots by bringing in outside counsel. On Saturday, Cameron announced that he’ll be seeking advisement from Bill Bratton, an American policeman with a history of combating street crime. Bratton served as New York City police commissioner under Rudy Guiliani, and as chief of police in Los Angeles he overhauled the police department after the 1992 Los Angeles riots. The British media are calling Bratton a "supercop," but the British Police have not taken kindly to the announcement.
