A Police guide to surveying citizens and their environment( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph offers an introduction and practical guidelines regarding the development and implementation of two types of surveys that police find increasingly useful: (1) surveys of citizens and (2) surveys of the physical environment. Those conducting a survey must first determine the sample from which they want to obtain data. Random selection is the most popular manner of selecting a representative sample. Surveys can usually be conducted in one of three ways: (1) mailing a questionnaire, (2) questioning by telephone, and (3) personal interviews. Designing the questions requires precision in wording, clarity of thought, and care not to take too much time. Simple data analysis can determine the central tendency, the range of answers, and how representative the sample was. Opinion surveys may themselves help deter crime and reduce fear of crime, while environmental surveys help police quantify the physical characteristics of neighborhoods and link them with specific neighborhood problems. These surveys help identify problems, determine what changes will help solve them, and measure the effectiveness of the efforts

Learning from 9/11 : organizational change in the New York City and Arlington County, Va., police departments by Gwen Holden( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Sept. 11, 2001, local first responders in two jurisdictions - New York City and Arlington County, Va. - were forced to deal with attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that were unprecedented in scope and loss of life. Following 9/11, the National Institute of Justice awarded a grant to the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) to conduct case studies of the two law enforcement agencies most directly involved to learn what they could teach about best practices for responding to future incidents
Using future Internet technologies to strengthen criminal justice by John S Hollywood( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 549 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( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 548 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
Neighborhood-oriented policing in rural communities : a program planning guide by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is targeted at citizens and law enforcement officials in rural and small town settings who are working to redirect police resources to achieve greater effectiveness in handling public safety problems including crime and fear of crime, drug abuse, violence, and disorder. Although different variations of neighborhood-oriented policing have emerged, most incorporate the same two important ingredients, namely, community engagement and problemsolving. In this monograph, following the introduction, two chapters have an external focus, explaining from the police agency's perspective, how to initiate greater community participation and how to identify and analyze community needs. The two following chapters describe, from a more internal focus, how to take stock and asses police organizational needs and how to implement the decisionmaking process. The final two chapters integrate the external and internal viewpoints and focus on planning, implementation, and evaluation. The monograph also contains information including suggested reading, national resource agencies, problemsolving guides, a sample policy agency mission statement, and suggestions for planning and management

Promoting effective homicide investigations by Etats-Unis( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a result of the collaboration of a two day conference in May 2006: Promoting effective homicide investigations. Law enforcement executives, academics, attorneys, and federal government representatives addressed the different effective strategies that have been developed to combat the problems of the changing nature of crime, the decentralization of police departments, and the rise in gang violence that have all had an impact on the effectiveness of homicide investigations. These strategies include various management and personnel decisions, videotaping suspect interviews, considering the availability of eyewitness identification option, DNA analysis, and using cold case units and crime analysis to increase clearance rates. Case studies highlighted both the strengths and weaknesses associated with various investigation techniques
