Herman Goldstein 1931-2020

Herman Goldstein, widely admired architect of problem-oriented policing, passed away Friday in Madison, Wisconsin. Online messages from both police leaders and police scholars emphasized how much Herman had influenced their thinking about police, and also what a warm, generous, and humble man he was. A reflection on the enduring significance of POP is here. A eulogy by his friend and mentee David Couper is here. Some of his early biography can be found here, starting on page 18, and an article about him winning the Stockholm Prize in Criminology is here. His own comments about that prestigious award are here, and his Stockholm lecture is published here. A great and good man has left us and he will be sorely missed.
