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

20 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 786 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 )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 741 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' 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

Human development and criminal behavior : new ways of advancing knowledge by Michael H Tonry( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 367 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
From juvenile delinquency to adult crime : criminal careers, justice policy, and prevention( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 354 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 )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 336 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
Key issues in criminal career research : new analyses of the Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development by Alexis Russell Piquero( Book )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines several contentious and understudied criminal career issues using one of the world's most important longitudinal studies, the Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development (CSDD), a longitudinal study of 411 South London boys followed in criminal records to age 40. The analysis reported in the book explores issues related to prevalence, offending frequency, specialization, onset sequences, co-offending, chronicity, career length, and trajectory estimation. The results of the study are considered in the context of developmental/life-course theories, and the authors outline an agenda for criminal career research generally, and within the context of the CSDD specifically."--BOOK JACKET
Reducing crime : the effectiveness of criminal justice intervention by Editor:Amanda Perry( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important volume presents an extensive review of over 100 studies assessing the effectiveness of criminal justice interventions in the reduction of crime. It draws together information about where, for whom, and critically, at what cost the interventions are effective in reducing and deterring crime." "Reducing Crime is essential reading for academics, students and researchers in forensic psychology, criminology, social policy and economics. It will also be a valuable resource for policy makers, criminal justice decision makers and probation and police officers."--Jacket

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 )

16 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explaining Criminal Careers presents a simple quantitative theory of crime, conviction and reconviction, the assumptions of the theory are derived directly from a detailed analysis of cohort samples drawn from the zUK Home Officey Offenders Index (OI). Mathematical models based on the theory, together with population trends, are used to make: exact quantitative predictions of features of criminal careers; aggregate crime levels; the prison population; and to explain the age-crime curve, alternative explanations are shown not to be supported by the data. Previous research is reviewed, clearly identifying the foundations of the current work. Using graphical techniques to identify mathematical regularities in the data, recidivism (risk) and frequency (rate) of conviction are analysed and modelled. These models are brought together to identify three categories of offender: high-risk / high-rate, high-risk / low-rate and low-risk / low-rate. The theory is shown to rest on just 6 basic assumptions. Within this theoretical framework the seriousness of offending, specialisation or versatility in offence types and the psychological characteristics of offenders are all explored suggesting that the most serious offenders are a random sample from the risk/rate categories but that those with custody later in their careers are predominantly high-risk/high-rate. In general offenders are shown to be versatile rather than specialist and can be categorised using psychological profiles. The policy implications are drawn out highlighting the importance of conviction in desistance from crime and the absence of any additional deterrence effect of imprisonment. The use of the theory in evaluation of interventions is demonstrated
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 85 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
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 84 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.--Résumé de l'éditeur
