Arson and arson investigation : survey and assessment by John F Boudreau( Book )

5 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings from a study of arson and current arson investigative methods and needs. The report first presents current arson statistics and critiques studies of the characteristics of arsonists. A major study component was a questionnaire survey of a selected group of leading arson investigators to identify needs in arson investigation. Priority was given to increasing the number and the training of arson investigators, to establishing an automated data system for arson investigation, to conducting scientific research on arson investigation methods, to improving cooperation from insurance companies, and to developing equipment to aid in arson investigation. Equipment of particular importance is an improved flammable vapor detector to help the investigator locate residues of fire accelerants most often used by arsonists. Another study component was a statistical analysis of data on arson, arson arrests, and arson convictions from 108 cities over a 4-year period. The analysis found that cities ranked in the upper third in arson arrest rates had 22 percent fewer arsons per 100,000 population than cities ranked in the bottom third. Cities ranked in the upper third of arson conviction rates had 26 percent fewer arsons. The report concludes with a review of the capabilities and needed improvements in the technical methods of arson investigation. Recommendations for arson reduction and improved arson investigations are provided

Sentencing to community service by James Beha( Book )

6 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sentencing selected offenders to perform services for the community is becoming an increasingly popular sentencing option for judges. Premised on the notion that a fine and/or jail term is not always in the best interest of society or the offender, many courts have embraced the concept of community service in lieu of the traditional sentences, particularly in cases involving misdemeanors. This document sets forth several types of community service alternative sentencing programs (also known as court referral programs) and discusses the issues and problems typically and/or potentially facing these programs. After an introductory chapter discussing the theory behind alternative sentencing, Chapter 2 describes three different types of alternative community service or court referral programs. Chapter 2 concludes with programmatic issues of concern to planners and administrators of such projects. Chapter 3 presents the legal issues concerning sentencing to community service. Chapter 4 discusses the need and methods for monitoring and evaluating court referral programs. The projects and their results described in this document suggest that sentencing to community service as an alternative to fines and jail may be of benefit to interested communities. (Author)
Classification for parole decision policy by National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice( Book )

7 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general purpose of this study was to develop and implement, in close collaboration with parole authorities in various states, improved procedures for parole decisions. A discussion of the general nature of the paroling policy or guideline models sought is presented, with emphasis on providing a means for repeated assessment and revision of policy. This is followed by the general methods used. Two types of guideline models were developed, called sequential and matrix models. The specific guidelines produced with the seven different jurisdictions are presented, utilizing the two general model types. Suggestions for guideline development based on experience in this study are presented, as is a discussion of differing models and of some moral issues that arise from the results of the project. The report is generally addressed to parole board members and others in leadership positions in the criminal justice system. (Ka)
