Policing, Punishment and Policy
Reversing the Effects of Hyper-policing and Hyper-incarceration:
Restorative Justice as Transformational Practice
Victor Rios is a Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He conducts research on young people’s experiences with policing, education, and adversity. His book, Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys (NYU Press 2011), analyzes how juvenile crime policies, punitive policing, and criminalization in the education system affect the everyday lives of urban male youth. He has written a memoir for young adults titled Street Life: Poverty, Gangs, and a Ph.D.(FRP 2011). Victor received his Ph.D. in 2005 at the University of California, Berkeley.
Victor has worked with local school districts and community centers to develop programs and trainings aimed at improving the quality of interactions between authority figures and youths. Using his personal experience of living on the streets, dropping out of school, and being incarcerated as a juvenile—along with his research findings—he has developed interventions for marginalized youths aimed at promoting personal transformation and civic engagement. These programs have been implemented in Los Angeles, California (Watts); juvenile detention facilities; and high schools.
