How Rudy Giuliani cleaned up NYC City with conservative practices

NY POST, 5/15/12 -- When I first ran for mayor in 1989, I lost the race. I realized afterward that if I wanted to run again and win, I needed the equivalent of a graduate degree in how to turn around one of the world’s largest cities. I began to meet with experts in all areas.

Retaking the streets: Cracking down on the squeegee guys, who molested motorists, was an idea that came out of James Q. Wilson’s theory.

I was especially interested in law enforcement. I had grown up with police officers and pored over issues of Spring 3100, the New York City Police Department’s in-house magazine, as a child. In the years since, I’d noticed that police officers had become better equipped and better trained and were solving crimes more intelligently than ever before. So why wouldn’t the crime rate drop?
