Abstract:

The purpose of the research is to examine the extent to which law enforcement agencies facilitate the gentrification process in the Humboldt Park community through their treatment of Puerto Rican youth. Research indicates that as communities experience gentrification, new and more affluent residents mobilize community resources to construct brighter street lights, renovate walkways, insist on garbage removal and street cleaning services, and call on law enforcement agencies to take action against crime (Freeman & Braconi, 2004; Schill & Nathan, 1983). Additionally, new and more affluent residents prioritize community concerns, and as a consequence, criminalize long standing community residents. Utilizing qualitative methods of analysis, this study explores the impact of gentrification on the lives of Puerto Rican youth in the Humboldt Park community. Initial findings demostrate a decrease in overall crimes as a result of gentrification. However, Puerto Rican youth do not experience similar variations in policing procedure. My study illustrtaes that Puerto Rican youth encounter comparable methods of police treatment regardless of gentrification.
