Worrall, the UTD criminologist, hasn't studied the task force closely, but he says that, as a general rule, gains achieved through hotspot policing are fleeting. "Eventually patrol levels return to normal, and so does crime," he says.

John Worrall, a criminology professor at the University of Texas-Dallas specializing in policing in legal issues, said in his review of state Freedom of Information Act laws, "None that I've found have gone to this extreme. In fact, the opposite is occurring" in many states, Worrall said, with more governments and police agencies posting information promptly about police-involved shootings.

Though police supporters fear use of publicly available records against them, "that's largely based on a total lack of data," Worrall said. "There's no data on retaliatory actions against police officers. And even if the problem exists, I'm not convinced that hiding their names is the solution."
Worrall and others noted that keeping officers' names secret seems to conflict with the idea of community policing and building trust with citizens.

Without a formal study, there's no way to know for sure what caused the reduction in complaints, said John Worrall, a criminal justice professor at the University of Texas at Dallas.

"The marked drop between 2014 and 2015 strikes me as conspicuous and in need of an explanation," Worrall said. He said the chief's claim of training improvements could be valid, but added that "it is doubtful that such improvements could have such a pronounced effect in such a short span of time."
