Saving children from a life of crime : early risk factors and effective interventions by David P Farrington( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the latest evidence, Saving Children from a Life of Crime is the first book to assess the early causes of offending and what works best to prevent it. Preschool intellectual enrichment, child skills training, parent management training, and home visiting programs are among the most effective early prevention programs. Criminologists David P. Farrington and Brandon C. Welsh also outline a policy strategy - early prevention - that uses this current research knowledge and brings into sharper focus what America's national crime-fighting priority ought to be."--Jacket
Serious & violent juvenile offenders : risk factors and successful interventions by Rolf Loeber( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed and comprehensive, Serious and Violent Juvenile Offenders presents authoritative discussions by a select group of leading scholars on issues surrounding serious and violent juvenile offenders. This population is responsible for a disproportionate percentage of all crime and poses the greatest challenge to juvenile justice policymakers. Under the skillful editorship of Rolf Loeber and David P. Farrington, this unique volume integrates knowledge about risk and protective factors with information about intervention and prevention programs so that conclusions from each area can inform the other. Current literature on these two areas does not, for the most part, apply directly to serious and violent juvenile offenders. This volume contends that serious and violent juvenile offenders tend to start displaying behavior problems and delinquency early in life, warranting early intervention. It is the contributors{u2019} thesis that prevention is never too early. They also maintain, however, that interventions for serious and violent juvenile offenders can never be too late in that effective interventions exist for known serious and violent juvenile offenders. Augmented by charts, tables, graphs, figures, and an extensive bibliography, Serious and Violent Juvenile Offenders is an excellent reference work and a must read for policy and lawmakers, judges, attorneys, law enforcement personnel, education administrators, researchers, academics, social workers, sociologists, as well as graduate students and interns

What works in preventing crime? : systematic reviews of experimental and quasi-experimental research by David P Farrington( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Crime prevention is necessary in any society. Without it, crime would continue to skyrocket and the society as a whole would suffer. This special volume of The Annals, What Works in Preventing Crime? Systematic Reviews of Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Research, originated with the 2001 Jerry Lee Crime Prevention Symposium. This 2-day conference focused on systematic reviews of criminological interventions. From there, many articles were put together discussing the methods of conducting systematic reviews, research findings from prevention and intervention studies, and what this means for the future of crime prevention. This special volume of The Annals also focuses on the Campbell Collaboration and its Crime and Justice Group. It is set up to prepare, maintain, and disseminate evidence-based research in crime and make it available electronically to the general public. This is an important organization, and its findings make it easier for the general public as well as policy makers to see where things need to be changed in order to continue preventing crime that would have happened without the prevention programs in place
Human development and criminal behavior : new ways of advancing knowledge by Michael H Tonry( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human Development and Criminal Behavior proposes an exten- sive agenda for crime research. The book is part of a pio- neering effort to understand the causes of crime, particu- larly its developmental course. It defines and sets the con- ditions necessary to conduct an accelerated longitudinal study of individuals at risk to become engaged in criminal careers. This work offers a blueprint for research to eluci- date and possibly prevent crime in our society
Psychology, law, and legal processes by David P Farrington( Book )

18 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From juvenile delinquency to adult crime : criminal careers, justice policy, and prevention( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses exclusively on the transition from juvenile to adult crime and argues for special legal provisions for offenders aged 18-24. What makes a juvenile delinquent develop into an adult criminal? What defines, cognitively, developmentally, legally, the transition from juvenile to adult and what determines whether patterns of criminal behavior persist? In most U.S. states and Western nations, legal adulthood begins at age 18. This volume focuses on the period surrounding that abrupt transition (roughly ages 15-29) and addresses what happens to offending careers during it. Edited by two leading authorities in the fields of psychology and criminology, this text examines why the period of transition is important and how it can be better understood and addressed both inside and outside of the justice system. Bringing together over thirty leading scholars from multiple disciplines in both North America and Europe, this volume asks critical questions about criminal careers and causation, and whether current legal definitions of adulthood accurately reflect actual maturation and development. It also addresses the current efficacy of the justice system in addressing juvenile crime and recidivism, why and how juveniles ought to be treated differently from adults, if special legal provisions should be established for young adults, and the effectiveness of crime prevention programs implemented during early childhood and adolescence. With scholarly analysis and practical policy proposals, it addresses what can be done to ensure that today's juvenile delinquents do not become tomorrow's adult criminals
Making public places safer : surveillance and crime prevention by Brandon Welsh( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The United Kingdom has more than 4.2 million public closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras-one for every fourteen citizens. Across the United States, hundreds of video surveillance systems are being installed in town centers, public transportation facilities, and schools at a cost exceeding $100 million annually. And now other Western countries have begun to experiment with CCTV to prevent crime in public places. In light of this expansion and the associated public expenditure, as well as pressing concerns about privacy rights, there is an acute need for an evidence-based approach to inform policy and practice. Drawing on the highest-quality research, criminologists Brandon C. Welsh and David P. Farrington assess the effectiveness and social costs of not only CCTV, but also of other important surveillance methods to prevent crime in public space, such as improved street lighting, security guards, place managers, and defensible space. Importantly, the book goes beyond the question of "Does it work?" and examines the specific conditions and contexts under which these surveillance methods may have an effect on crime as well as the mechanisms that bring about a reduction in crime. At a time when cities need cost-effective methods to fight crime and the public gradually awakens to the burdens of sacrificing their privacy and civil rights for security, Welsh and Farrington provide this timely and reliable guide to the most effective and non-invasive uses of surveillance to make public places safer from crime

Crime and justice in the United States and in England and Wales, 1981-96 by Patrick A Langan( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents and compares victimization survey and police statistics on crime in the United States and England and Wales for 1981-96, along with selected court statistics for these countries. Findings show that whether measured by surveys of crime victims or by police statistics, serious crime rates are not generally higher in the United States than in England and Wales. According to 1995 victim surveys -- which measure robbery, assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft -- crime rates are all higher in England than the United States. The major exception to the pattern of higher crime rates in England and Wales is the murder rate. The 1996 U.S. murder rate was nearly six times higher than England and Wales, although the difference among the countries has narrowed over the past 16 years. Firearms are more often involved in violent crimes in the United States than in England and Wales. Since 1981 an offender's risk of being caught, convicted, and sentenced to incarceration has risen in the United States for all six measured crimes (murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft) but has fallen in England and Wales for all but murder. The court data addressed in this report include convictions, sentences of incarceration, racial disparities in incarceration, percent of sentence served, and time served. Also considered are the justice system's impact on crime and justice system changes. Data sources are profiled
Explaining criminal careers : implications for justice policy by John F MacLeod( Book )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the Home Office Offenders Index, a unique database containing records of all criminal convictions in England and Wales since 1963, this simple but influential theory makes exact quantitative predictions about criminal careers and age-crime curves, in particular the prison population contingent on a given sentencing policy
Offending from Childhood to Late Middle Age : Recent Results from the Cambridge Study on Delinquent Development by David P Farrington( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offending from Childhood to Late Middle Age is a timely volume by leading researchers in Life Course Criminology, which reports new findings from The Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development, a prospective longitudinal survey of 411 South London males first studied at age 8 in 1961. The main aim of the study is to advance knowledge about criminal careers up to age 56. At the time of these most recent findings, forty-two percent of the males were convicted, with an average ten-year conviction career. Only seven percent of the males accounted for half of all convictions. Almost all of the males (93 percent) reported committing an offense in four age ranges, compared with 29 percent who were convicted at these ages. There were on average of 39 self-reported offenses per conviction. Group-based trajectory analyses indicated that, while there were distinct groups of offenders who followed different age-crime trajectories between ages 10 and 56, five groups best characterized the criminal careers of the men, with two groups, high adolescence peak and high rate chronic, exhibiting the most offending. Also, the offending trajectories were predicted by individual and environmental childhood risk factors, with the most chronic offenders (to age 56) having the most extreme scores on childhood risk. Based on these results, risk assessment instruments could be developed and risk-focused prevention could be implemented in early childhood, including parent training, pre-school intellectual enrichment programs and home visiting programs, in order to prevent chronic styles of offending from being initiated. This work will be of interest to researchers in criminology and criminal justice, especially those with an interest in life course criminology and crime prevention, while also being of use as a research framework for other studies.? It will also be of interest to researchers in sociology, psychology, and other social sciences, as well as policy makers and practitioners. This is a 'must read' for anyone seeking to understand the development and course of crime from childhood through adulthood. Comparative analyses of officially recorded and self-reported offending and analyses of the predictive power of childhood risks to distinguish offending trajectories are important contributions of this new milestone in the Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development.ʺJ. David Hawkins, Ph. D., Endowed Professor of Prevention, Social Development Research Group, School of Social Work, University of Washington For more than four decades the Cambridge Study of Delinquent Development has been a guiding light for research on what has come to be called developmental criminology
Young homicide offenders and victims : risk factors, prediction, and prevention from childhood by Rolf Loeber( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first decade of the new century proved to be a deadly one for many children and young people in the United States. Despite increased policing on the streets, higher rates of incarceration, harsher sentencing, stricter control of illegal drugs, and attempts to reduce access to firearms, FBI reports show that more than 7,300 young people between the ages of 15 and 29 were murdered in 2008 alone. It's clear that traditional crime reduction strategies have not stemmed the rising tide of homicides perpetrated by and upon one of society's most vulnerable populations. Innovative, practicable solu

Delinquent-prone communities by Donald James Weatherburn( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite a century of effort, criminologists do not yet fully understand the relationship between disadvantage and crime. This book challenges the conventional view that disadvantage causes crime because it motivates people to offend, and argues instead that disadvantage causes crime because it disrupts the parenting process
