Using future Internet technologies to strengthen criminal justice by John S Hollywood( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Future World Wide Web technologies commonly labeled as being part of Web 3.0 and Web 4.0 could substantially change how the criminal justice enterprise operates. These notably include Semantic Web technologies, intelligent agents, and the Internet of Things. In September 2014, RAND conducted an expert panel for the National Institute of Justice to discuss how the criminal justice community can take advantage of (and reduce the risks from) these emerging technologies. The top unifying theme from the panel was to leverage web technologies to improve information-sharing and protection across the criminal justice enterprise, and to address challenges that the new technologies raise. Another major theme was improving practitioners' knowledge of web technologies. Priorities included general education on key web technologies, and model policies and procedures for using them. A third theme was to improve the networking infrastructure needed to support web technologies (and other applications), especially for courts and corrections. Fourth, several needs became apparent related to leveraging wearable and embedded sensors (part of the Internet of Things), with an emphasis on using sensors to improve officer health and safety. Finally, panelists frequently noted the importance of civil rights, privacy rights, and cybersecurity protections in using the emerging technologies for criminal justice. While there were few needs about these topics specifically, panelists noted that more than half of the needs raised security, privacy, or civil rights concerns, or had implied requirements on these topics"--Publisher's description
Digital evidence and the U.S. criminal justice system : identifying technology and other needs to more effectively acquire and utilize digital evidence by Sean E Goodison( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the results of a National Institute of Justice (NIJ)-sponsored research effort to identify and prioritize criminal justice needs related to digital evidence collection, management, analysis, and use. With digital devices becoming ubiquitous, digital evidence is increasingly important to the investigation and prosecution of many types of crimes. These devices often contain information about crimes committed, movement of suspects, and criminal associates. However, there are significant challenges to successfully using digital evidence in prosecutions, including inexperience of patrol officers and detectives in preserving and collecting digital evidence, lack of familiarity with digital evidence on the part of court officials, and an overwhelming volume of work for digital evidence examiners. Through structured interaction with police digital forensic experts, prosecuting attorneys, a privacy advocate, and industry representatives, the effort identified and prioritized specific needs to improve utilization of digital evidence in criminal justice. Several top-tier needs emerged from the analysis, including education of prosecutors and judges regarding digital evidence opportunities and challenges; training for patrol officers and investigators to promote better collection and preservation of digital evidence; tools for detectives to triage analysis of digital evidence in the field; development of regional models to make digital evidence analysis capability available to small departments; and training to address concerns about maintaining the currency of training and technology available to digital forensic examiners
Impacts of a violence prevention program for middle schools : findings from the first year of implementation by E. Suyapa Silvia( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first of two reports that summarize the findings from an impact evaluation of a violence prevention intervention for middle schools. This report discusses findings after 1 year of implementation. A forthcoming report will discuss the findings after 2 years and 3 years of implementation. In 2004, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) contracted with RTI International (RTI) and its subcontractors, Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) and Tanglewood Research, Inc., to conduct an evaluation of a hybrid intervention model that combines a curriculum-based program, Responding in Peaceful and Positive Ways (RiPP [Meyer and Northup 2002a, 2002b, 2006]), and a whole-school approach, Best Behavior (Sprague and Golly 2005). The combined intervention was administered over the course of 3 successive years. Using a randomized control trial design (with entire schools randomly assigned either to receive the intervention or not), the evaluation assesses the intervention's effects on student violence and victimization and whether these effects vary by levels of student risk. Tanglewood Research, which assisted in the process by which the programs under study were selected, provided implementation oversight along with site-based liaisons and coordinated training and technical assistance for staff in intervention schools. The developers of the two programs that constitute the intervention--Prevention Opportunities and University of Oregon--provided the program materials and conducted staff training. Appendices include: (1) Survey Instruments; (2) Defining the High-Risk Student Subgroup; (3) Construction of Outcome Measures; (4) Statistical Precision; (5) Baseline Measures for Gender Subgroups; and (6) Unadjusted Means and Standard Deviations for Impact Variables. (Contains 53 tables, 4 figures and 17 footnotes.)

New college graduates at work : employment among 1992-93, 1999-2000, and 2007-08 bachelor's degree recipients 1 year after graduation by Sandra Staklis( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Statistics in Brief examines the employment outcomes of college graduates 1 year after earning a bachelor's degree. It compares 2007-08 bachelor's degree recipients who graduated at the start of the recent recession with their peers who graduated in 1992-93 and 1999-2000. Different labor market conditions characterized these three time periods. The U.S. unemployment rate rose from 5.8 percent in 2008 to 9.3 percent in 2009. The different labor market conditions of the years examined in this study meant that the three cohorts faced different employment prospects as they sought and began their first jobs as college graduates. The Brief begins by examining the employment and enrollment status of all college graduates 1 year after earning a bachelor's degree and then examines their employment experiences in more detail, including employment intensity (whether employed full time, part time, or in multiple jobs), occupation, and salary of those who were employed and not enrolled 1 year after graduation. Study questions include: (1) What was the employment and enrollment status of 2007-08 bachelor's degree recipients 1 year after college? How did the employment and enrollment status of these recent college graduates compare with that of earlier cohorts?; (2) How did college graduates' unemployment and employment in fields unrelated to their under-graduate majors vary with their demographic characteristics, including sex, race/ethnicity, and age? Did these outcomes change over time?; and (3) What were the relationships between college graduates' major field of study and their employment outcomes, including unemployment rates, the relatedness of graduates' majors and jobs, salary levels (among those employed full time), and occupations? The estimates provided in this Statistics in Brief are based on data collected through the first follow-up of each of the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Studies of 1993, 2000, and 2008 (B&B:93/94 , B&B:2000/01, and B&B:08/09). Key findings include: (1) One year after graduation, the unemployment rate of 2007-08 bachelor degree recipients (9 per-cent) was higher than for those who attained their degrees in 1992-93 and 1999-2000 (4 percent and 5 percent, respectively); (2) Eight percent of female graduates who earned their degrees in 2007-08 were unemployed in 2009, compared with 10 percent of male graduates; (3) One year after graduation, unemployment rates for some majors increased between 2001 and 2009, whereas for other majors there was no measurable change; (4) In constant dollars, median annual salaries after 1 year were lower in 2009 than in 2001 for graduates in computer and information sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, business, and other applied fields; and (5) In 2009, recent graduates who reported that their jobs were closely related to their majors earned more than graduates reporting jobs that were either somewhat or unrelated to their major ($40,000 vs. $35,000 and $31,000, respectively).

Reusable launch vehicles operations and maintenance guidance inputs and technical evaluation report( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Development of commercial Reusable Launch Vehicles (RLVs) remains a great interest to many private companies. The appeal rests in an RLV's ability to support multiple mission types (e.g., cargo and tourism) and amortized development costs over the life of the operational vehicle. Commercial RLV companies plan to use both existing and new technologies in the design/development of the vehicle and its subsystems. RLV Operations and Maintenance (O & M) practices have the potential to affect public safety; therefore, the FAA's Office of Commercial Space Transportation (FAA/AST) is in the process of developing guidelines for RLV O & M practices. These guidelines may be used in evaluating an RLV developer/operator's license application. This Guideline Input and Technical Evaluation Report is intended to capture an initial set of Guideline Inputs (GIs) and Guideline Input Considerations (GICs) ordered around the various subsystems that are likely to be used in RLV O & M
