Honors: Tamara Madensen
Tamara Madensen (Criminal Justice) is the recipient of the 2017 Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing. She received the award for developing an effective and innovative violence-reduction policing strategy called PIVOT (Place-based Investigations of Violent Offender Territories).
PIVOT is designed to stop shootings in chronically violent urban locations. Police, city departments, and local communities work together to disrupt opportunities for violence, using a problem-oriented approach that focuses on uncovering and dismantling place-networks that permit violent activities.
A panel of distinguished judges from around the world, including academics and police experts, gave the Goldstein Award to those who developed and implemented PIVOT in Cincinnati, Ohio — Cincinnati police department officers and analysts, city of Cincinnati personnel, and Madensen, the strategy's co-creator.
