- Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Tate Fegley focuses on community policing and criminal justice reform. His dissertation, The Political Economy of Policing, analyzes the epistemological properties of alternative institutional arrangements for the provision of policing and security. He argues that the lack of success of most American police departments to implement community-oriented policing stems from their inability to engage in economics calculation. He has published articles in Public Choice, The Independent Review, Policing: An International Journal of Strategies and Management, and Political Dialogues.
Dr. Fegley received his PhD in Economics from George Mason University in 2020. He earned a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice from Boise State University. He also holds a BS in Criminal Justice and BA in Economics from Boise State University.
