In Memphis, TN, data shows that there has been a decrease in violent crimes. According to Fox 13 in Memphis, “while the decrease is not directly linked to fears of the coronavirus, there may be some correlation.” Police in Britain are ignoring low-level crimes such as burglaries in order to focus on more serious crimes and to help maintain order. In Fort Worth, Texas, the police are issuing tickets for low level crimes instead of arresting people.

Across the nation, the criminal justice system is grinding to a halt. Jury trials have been postponed and there are recommendations to halt all civil and criminal trials. In Florida, the chief justice has suspended all in-person court proceedings through the end of March. According to Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice, Charles Canady, “cases that are already in court, may proceed if the judge along with the chief judge determines that is required.”
