The adoption of the broke windows theory made way for the zero tolerance policy, which simply states that no matter what the circumstances are, when it comes to crimes within the streets and discipline in the schools, punishment will be applied. The broken windows theory is used as a signaling effect of urban disorder and vandalism on anti-social behavior and any other additional crimes.
