A new study on the connection between police militarization and civilian casualties is receiving national attention, and Gardner-Webb University Assistant Professor of Political Science Dr. Casey Delehanty is at the center of it. The research is being publicized in the Washington Post and is being discussed among public policy organizations like the CATO Institute, based in Washington D.C. Delehanty, along with co-authors Jack Mewhirter (University of Cincinnati), Ryan Welch (Stanford University), and Jason Wilks (Harvard University), researched the effects of the 1033 Program, theorizing that increased militarization of police leads to an increase in civilian casualties.
