The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department could implement no-go zones to prevent criminals from returning to the same areas.

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department is considering a policy that would preclude people who are arrested from returning to designated areas.

The measure is designed to reduce crime and other cities have instituted similar measures with carried successes. Opponents say the no-go zones raise constitutional concerns.

Host Frank Stasio talks with David Graham, a reporter with The Atlantic, about the proposed measure.
