Using civil remedies for criminal behavior : rationale, case studies, and constitutional issues by Peter Finn( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These seven case studies present various criminal justice programs that use civil process to target intransigent criminal behavior. A program in Duluth, Minnesota, uses civil injunctive relief to prevent domestic violence. The Massachusetts Attorney General, together with the Boston Police Department, uses the Massachusetts Civil Rights Act of 1979 to obtain injunctive relief for victims of hate crime. Two civil statutes are used by the Los Angeles Police Department, in conjunction with the Los Angeles District Attorney, to confiscate weapons from the mentally ill even when no crime has been committed and usually without obtaining a search warrant. The Arizona Attorney General's office relies on police undercover work in combination with a State civil racketeering statute to shut down illegal enterprises that steal and resell cars. Other policies described involve civil remedies to evict drug dealers from apartments, seize whole buildings used in the commission of a felony, and abate drug-related nuisances. Key considerations outlined for the effective use of civil remedies to achieve criminal justice goals are to find appropriate legislation, secure competent staff, develop close police-prosecutor collaboration, involve other agencies, and involve the community

Washington State's corrections clearinghouse : a comprehensive approach to offender employment by Peter Finn( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1976, the Correctional Clearinghouse (cch), which is a unit of the Washington State Employment Security Department, has been committed to preparing offenders for the workplace and finding employment. The CCH's principal service delivery strategies are as follows: (1) providing direct services (teaching job readiness courses in prisons and contracting with community-based organizations to provide job search assistance to ex-offenders); (2) brokering services available from other agencies (helping a community college and state agency establish a for-credit college program integrating job search assistance with substance abuse treatment for ex-offenders in recovery); and (3) coordinating activities across agencies (arranging for inmates to produce and distribute the statewide computerized Case Management Resource Directory). CCH's continuum of services to prisoners, which begins with employability assessment during incarceration and ends with job placement and ongoing assistance after employment, has proved highly successful. In 1997-1998, at least 3,080 inmates completed a cch employment or training activity in 5 of Washington's 15 correctional institutions. Of the 1,312 ex-offenders who received job search assistance through the cch in 1996-1997, 776 were placed in jobs and 68% were still in those jobs after 45 days. (Seven sources of assistance in replicating the cch model are listed.) (Mn)

Police response to special populations by Peter Finn( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed case studies of 12 police-social service networks are the basis for suggested guidelines for initiating and sustaining such networks to manage the mentally ill, public inebriates, and the homeless. Most of the 12 networks focus on the mentally ill. Each such network has a special 24-hour unit that screens persons, identifies an appropriate facility to which to refer them, and provides on-scene emergency assistance. The benefits of the networks for police are time savings, danger reduction, and increased job satisfaction. Mental health professionals benefit by spending less time evaluating, treating, or transferring inappropriate police referrals. Local government officials find that networking addresses the concerns of downtown merchants and the public about the mentally ill, public inebriates, and the homeless. In establishing and sustaining a network, all pertinent agencies should be involved in planning, and each agency should have a clear understanding of the special problems each facility will handle. Interagency agreements should be in writing, and each agency should monitor staff compliance. Program effects and successes should be monitored and documented. Ingredients for network success include appropriate training, effective communication, supportive legislation, and adequate funding
