BIDS Computational Social Science Fellow Ángel Mendiola Ross has received the 2021 Community and Urban Sociology Section (CUSS) of the American Sociological Association (ASA) Graduate Student Paper Award for “Outercity Policing: Drivers of Police Spending in a Changing Metropolis,” a paper that examines police spending in nearly 200 municipalities across California with a specific focus on the suburban periphery. Suburbs that saw increases in the share of Black residents and renters increased their investment in local law enforcement. Results point to the role of police as a contemporary mechanism of both social control and segregation.
Award winners will be announced officially at the next CUSS business meeting on Monday, August 9, 2021.
