Criminal justice information policy by Robert R Belair( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elected officials, justice professionals, courts and other institutions of our society are contributing to a reevaluation of juvenile justice information policy. The tenet that juveniles who commit crimes are not culpable is being challenged as the public's safety and economic well being is increasingly threatened by children engaged in criminal behavior. This document reviews the criminal justice information policy as it relates to confidentiality and juvenile justice in an attempt to identify those qualities of the policy which protect juveniles in a way that reflects the principles and character of the society. Part 1 describes the history and philosophy of the juvenile justice system with particular attention to juvenile record confidentiality. Part 2 focuses on the creation and maintenance of juvenile justice records from law enforcement and court system perspectives. Part 3 reviews disclosure of records including sealing and purging according to federal and state laws, sharing of records with the juvenile and adult justice systems, and accessibility and disclosure of records to subject, researchers, organizations, media, and the public. Part 4 focuses on confidentiality and media access, while Part 5 reviews the debate over confidentiality versus publicity. (Bl)

Privacy and juvenile justice records : a mid-decade status report by Robert R Belair( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1982, a national report examining law and policy for juvenile justice records concluded that the public's faith in the potential for rehabilitating juvenile offenders had eroded. To understand better the nature of juvenile crime, it was suggested that data surrounding this issue be systematically collected. Some of that information effort is reported here. This report provides a comprehensive overview of the status of juvenile justice records and information systems as of the mid-1990s. It also offers an analysis of related information and privacy issues. The text is divided into five parts. Part 1 recaps juvenile crime statistics, including the frequency and severity of these crimes. In part 2, the development of the rehabilitative ideal and the establishment of the juvenile court system is detailed. Because the public's shaken confidence in rehabilitating delinquents resulted in more youth being placed with adult criminals, part 3 of this report looks at the results of this move. Part 4 reviews the law and policy issues relevant to the dissemination of juvenile records, and part 5 looks at the current state of juvenile justice recordkeeping. The booklet concludes with a discussion of juvenile justice trends and the integration of juvenile and adult records. (Juvenile Justice timeline and Bureau of Justice statistics report included.)

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This technical reference work contains a large selection of proposed standard terms and definitions and model data structures, continuing the effort to develop a uniform national terminology for collecting and exchanging justice information and statistics. It incorporates material from and supersedes the first edition. It is primarily intended for the use of justice data collectors, processors, analysts, and interpreters, particularly those who are concerned with the communication of justice information between the States and at the national level. The recommended terminology is intended to promote the unambiguous description and communication of basic facts concerning criminal and juvenile justice processes, agencies, alleged and adjudicated offenders, and offenses. Model data structures describe standardizable units and events in selected subject areas and explicate category and term relationships. Each entry in the dictionary provides either recommended data system usages, or a description of actual usages in the justice community, or both. A discussion of the role of terminology in data system development and statistics and of problems in the development and adoption of an unambiguous and consistent technical vocabulary is included
