Department of Sociology

Drawing on observations and interviews across three U.S. police departments, Sierra-Arévalo advances the concept of “perilous policing.” This approach to policing emphasizes danger and death in officers' understanding and practice of police work and has profound consequences for officer safety, public wellbeing, and social inequality.

Michael Sierra-Arévalo is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin.
