'This report examines the extent to which statistical estimates of offender populations, criminal careers, and recidivism rates are impacted by the sealing of criminal records. The paper focuses on New York state, which has some of the nation's most extensive record-sealing policies. The report highlights the need to understand state-specific criminal history recording and reporting practices when calculating national estimates of offending patterns and performing cross-jurisdictional comparisons. Data are from BJS's Adult Criminal Trajectories of Juvenile Offenders Project, which tracked the criminal history patterns of persons arrested at age 16 or 17 in New York in 2001 for a 10-year period."--Abstracts.

"The authors of this report compared patterns of violent victimization in the Bakken oil-producing region to those in surrounding counties outside of the Bakken region. This report focuses on trends in violent crime from 2006 to 2012, a period during which regions of Montana and North Dakota that contain parts of the Bakken shale formation experienced relatively rapid growth in oil and gas production, an influx of new residents to work in oil sector-related jobs, and according to reports from the area, a corresponding increase in calls for service to local law enforcement. The information in this report comes from Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS)-sponsored analysis of data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI's) National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). From 2006 to 2012, the rate of violent victimization known to law enforcement in the Bakken oil-producing region of Montana and North Dakota increased, particularly the rate of aggravated assault, which increased 70%. There was no similar increase in rates of violent crime in the counties surrounding the Bakken oil region. Rates of male and female violent victimization in the Bakken region increased during this period, with the increase being higher for males (up 31%) than females (up 18%)."--Abstract.

Financial exploitation of older adults (FE) is a highly significant social problem that, to date, has not received much attention from the field of psychology. Data sources tracking FE report that FE has been increasing with losses of approximately $2.9 billion dollars per year. Psychological risk factors are well established and psychological outcomes have recently been demonstrated. FE can occur at any stage of the lifespan and the literature regarding prevalence amongst older adults has been mixed in terms of supporting a theory that older adults are more "susceptible" to fraud. However, there has been literature with documentation that older adults are targeted disproportionately, and are less likely to report FE.
On December 7, 2015, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) , Civil Rights Division, Special Litigation Section, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, jointly initiated an investigation of the City of Chicago’s Police Department (CPD) and the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA). This investigation was undertaken to determine whether the Chicago Police Department is engaging in a pattern or practice of unlawful conduct and, if so, what systemic deficiencies or practices within CPD, IPRA, and the City might be facilitating or causing this pattern or practice. Our investigation assessed CPD’s use of force, including deadly force, and addressed CPD policies, training, reporting, investigation, and review related to officer use of force. The investigation further addressed CPD ’s and IPRA’s systems of accountability both as they relate to officer use of force and officer misconduct, including the intake, investigation, and review of allegations of officer misconduct, and the imposition of discipline or other corrective action. We also investigated racial, ethnic, or other disparities in CPD’s force and accountability practices, and assessed how those disparities inform the breakdown in community trust

"Media have played an important role in framing the public debate on the “refugee crisis” that peaked in autumn of 2015. This report examines the narratives developed by print media in eight European countries and how they contributed to the public perception of the “crisis”, shifting from careful tolerance over the summer, to an outpouring of solidarity and humanitarianism in September 2015, and to a securitisation of the debate and a narrative of fear in November 2015."--Document home page.

"This report from the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) examines the impact of Compstat on police performance and accountability. Compstat is a “performance management system that is used to reduce crime and achieve other police department goals.” The system has four core components and emphasizes information-sharing, responsibility and accountability, and improving effectiveness. The components are: 1) timely and accurate information or intelligence; 2) rapid deployment of resources; 3) effective tactics; and 4) relentless follow-up. The report has three major sections. The first section details what Compstat is and how it was developed and adopted, first by the New York City Police Department and subsequently by other law enforcement and non-law enforcement agencies. The second section of the report discusses what is known about Compstat in today’s criminal justice system. The third section of the report discusses the future of Compstat and presents the views of agency officials on their plans for the use of Compstat"--NCJRS website.

This report by the Constitution Project's blue ribbon Task Force on Detainee Treatment is the most comprehensive, bipartisan investigation into the detention and treatment of suspected terrorists yet published. The product of more than two years of research, analysis and deliberation by the Task Force members and staff, it provides the American people with a broad understanding of what is known, and what may still be unknown, about the past and current treatment of suspected terrorists detained by the U.S. government during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations, and across multiple geographic theatres, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantánamo and the so-called "black sites." Its conclusion: "It is indisputable that the United States engaged in the practice of torture" after September 11, 2001 "and that the nation's highest officials bore ultimate responsibility for it."

"The APEX Assessment Tools Protocol includes the APEX Screener, the APEX Organizational Profile, and the APEX Inventory. These tools provide correctional agencies with processes to assess their internal and external environments, their readiness for change, and their performance on key indicators from the APEX Public Safety Model domains. These self-assessment tools are designed specifically for correctional agencies to use in a variety of ways: (1) sequentially: Screener--Organizational Profile--Inventory, (2) one or two of the tools as chosen by the agency, (3) as a checkup to see how the agency is performing, and (4) as a pretest or posttest to measure progress as a whole organization or by one department only. The assessment tool reports are designed to guide discussions of the results and how the agency wants to use the results to create a performance improvement plan"--Page 39.

In addition, the report discusses major FBI investigations overseas and identifies significant events--including legislative actions, prosecutorial updates, and program developments--relevant to U.S. counterterrorism efforts. The report concludes with an "In Focus" article summarizing the history of the FBI's counterrorism program.

How should we respond to individuals with disabilities? What does it mean to be disabled? Over fifty million Americans, from neonates to the fragile elderly, are disabled. Some people say they have the right to full social participation, while others repudiate such claims as delusive or dangerous. In this compelling book, three experts in ethics, medicine, and the law address pressing disability questions in bioethics and public policy. Anita Silvers, David Wasserman, and Mary B. Mahowald test important theories of justice by bringing them to bear on subjects of concern in a wide variety of disciplines dealing with disability. They do so in the light of recent advances in feminist, minority, and cultural studies, and of the groundbreaking Americans with Disabilities Act. Visit our website for sample chapters!.
