Juvenile offenders and victims : 1997 update on violence : statistics summary by Melissa Sickmund( Book )

14 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the second update to "Juvenile Offenders and Victims: a National Report" published in 1995. Drawing on new analysis of statistical series developed by various Federal agencies, it provides answers to the questions most often asked about trends in youth violence and victimization. This report provides information that the wave of violence by juveniles that the United States has experienced in the last 10 years may be subsiding. Serious violent crimes by juveniles dropped 25% between 1994 and 1995. The most recent data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation also report substantial declines in juvenile arrests for violence crimes. There is a reported decline of nearly 20% for murders by juveniles between 1993 and 1995. This report contains the raw information needed to address the problems of juvenile crime and victimization in sections on victims, offenders, and corrections. Current levels of juvenile crime, although below those of recent years, are still not acceptable. In addition, statistics continue to show high rates of victimization of juveniles. Twenty-five percent of all known juvenile homicide offenders were reported in the five U.S. counties that contain the cities of Los Angeles (California), Chicago (Illinois), Houston (Texas), Detroit (Michigan), and New York City. The forces that drove past increases in juvenile crime still exist, although there is more hope that society can counteract them. (Contains 39 graphs, 1 figure, 17 tables, 3 maps, and 39 references.)

Recognizing when a child's injury or illness is caused by abuse by United States( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide provides practical pointers for police in determining whether a child's injuries are accidental or intentional. Police should begin their investigation by asking the caretaker for an explanation of the child's bruises or injuries. All bruises must be investigated. If bruises are found on two or more planes of a child's body, investigators should be suspicious. A physical examination of the suspected child victim must be conducted and the data clearly and accurately recorded. Laboratory data should be obtained to support or refute the evidence of abuse. If the reported history of an injury or injuries changes during the course of an investigation, or if there is conflict between two adult caretakers as to the cause of injury, the likelihood of child maltreatment increases. The demeanor of the child's parents or caretakers should be carefully observed. This booklet outlines key points in the areas of repetitive accidents, skin injuries, and bruises. The latter discussion focuses on the age dating of bruises, bruise configurations, and natural or normal bruising. Guidelines are also provided for investigating the following types of injuries: burns, poisoning, head injuries, eye injuries, and internal injuries. Also discussed are criteria for distinguishing sudden infant death syndrome from fatal child abuse and other medical conditions. 23 supplemental readings and a list of 23 organizational resources
Interviewing child witnesses and victims of sexual abuse( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide provides practical information for law enforcement officers, child protection workers, child abuse investigators, and others faced with the need to obtain information from children who may be victims or witnesses of child sexual abuse. The approaches and techniques described are designed to be legally defensible while minimizing further trauma to the child. The techniques emphasize the maintenance of an objective perspective by the interviewer by avoiding leading questions, especially with young children, who may be susceptible to the suggestions of adults. Some suggestions for an interviewer's approach are to be sensitive to the child's level of development, to be flexible, to be objective, and to be empathetic. In talking to children, some guidelines are to phrase the question so the child understands; talk about what children understand; help children deal with questions they do not understand; be objective and avoid suggesting answers; provide a nonjudgmental atmosphere; begin the interview with broad, open-ended questions; avoid leading questions; help children overcome their anxieties; and understand children's emotional reactions. The phases of an interview discussed are preparation, setting and context, rapport-building and developmental observations, information exchange, and closure. Specific guidelines for interviewing children who may have been sexually abused focus on level of likelihood of the abuse, preparation for the interview, questioning, and the use of anatomical dolls and other media. 19 suggested supplemental readings, 5 organizations, and 15 additional resources
Child victimizers : violent offenders and their victims by Lawrence A Greenfeld( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published jointly by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, this document presents information drawn from a nationally representative sample of state prisoners and from existing homicide data assembled by law enforcement agencies. It sheds new light on the most serious types of child abuse and victimization--those offenses for which a term of imprisonment was imposed or in which a child was murdered. The document contains detailed statistical information on the following: (1) violent offenders who committed crimes against children; (2) criminal histories and characteristics of offenders who have victimized children; (3) characteristics of child victims of violent crime; (4) characteristics of the violent crimes experienced by children; and (5) the victims and offenders in child murder. The document also includes a section offering explanatory notes, including a discussion of methodological issues involved in the study and listings of the numerical data from which 24 graphs presented are drawn.

State responses to serious and violent juvenile crime : research report by Patricia Torbet( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State legislators across the country have responded with new efforts to change the authority and practice of the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Since 1992, 48 of the 51 state legislatures (including the District of Columbia) have made substantive changes to their juvenile justice laws. This report presents the first comprehensive analysis of these changes, as both an explanation of the reform process and a guide to those preparing new initiatives. Telephone surveys of justice practitioners in every state provided information about the changes that occurred as a result of new laws. Five common themes have emerged from the legislative analysis. The report is organized around these themes: (1) jurisdictional authority; (2) judicial disposition and sentencing authority; (3) correctional programming; (4) confidentiality of juvenile court records and proceedings; and (5) victims of juvenile crime. In general, justice for a subset of juveniles now involves increased eligibility for criminal, rather than juvenile, court processing and adult sanctions. The prosecutor is gaining an expanded role in system responses as the judge has less authority. These and other changes are expected to have considerable impact on minority youth. Each chapter contains references. (Contains 10 figures.) (Sld)

Photo-documentation in the investigation of child abuse by United States( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide provides pointers on the selection and use of camera equipment, film, and photographic techniques that are most appropriate for use in cases of suspected child abuse. Photographs that document a victim's injuries often provide key evidence in child abuse cases and convictions. To ensure effective photodocumentation, it is important to use the most appropriate camera equipment and film and to identify and investigate the child victim. Critical to all investigations of child abuse is the method of photographing injuries such as pressure injuries, bite marks, bruises, burns, facial injuries, amputations, neglect, and sexual abuse injuries. Accurate courtroom evidence can be hindered by ineffective camera equipment and film, insufficient methods of photographing the victim or the victim's injuries, misinformation regarding the photographs of the case, and mislabeling of child abuse information, including photographs. This booklet has sections on camera equipment, film, ultraviolet photography, the photographing of injuries, photodocumentation as court evidence, and photography tips. 16 supplemental readings and a list of 15 organizational resources

The crime of family abduction : a child's and parent's perspective( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The U.S. Department of Justice reports that as many as 200,000 children are victims of family abduction each year. Although the majority of abducted children are taken not by a stranger, but by a parent or family member, the issue of family abduction remains laden with misconception and myth. Serious missing-child cases that have devastating effects on the child are too often seen as divorce and custody matters, something private that the public and law enforcement should not concern themselves with. The truth is that family abduction can be as physically dangerous and even deadly for the child victims as any other form of child abduction. Most often, however, the worst damage is imperceptible to the eye, occurring deep within the child, leaving traces that may last a lifetime. This publication offers insights into what it means to be abducted by a family member. Written from the perspective of the child and searching parent, it is designed to help you, the reader, understand the unique characteristics of family abduction and the nightmare that they have experienced. Although the individual circumstances surrounding the authors' cases show the multifaceted diversity of family abduction, the one thing they have in common is that they were all "missing child" cases. The child victims in these cases were concealed by their abductor, hidden not just from their searching family, friends, schools, and community but also from the justice and child protection systems. Our objective is to increase understanding of the crime of family abduction and empower the reader to though fully assist in the immediate and long-term recovery of a child. Whether you are the searching parent, an abducted or former abducted child, a family member, a professional responder, a neighbor, a teacher, or an advocate, you can begin to comprehend what is happening and why a child-centered response, as outlined throughout this book, is so important"--About this book on p. ix

Law enforcement response to child abuse( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide provides information needed by law enforcement personnel to ensure consistency in child abuse investigations and offers useful suggestions on how police officers can work with physicians, respond to domestic disturbance calls, and place children in protective custody. The role of law enforcement in child abuse cases is to investigate, identify and apprehend the offender, and file appropriate criminal charges. The response of law enforcement to child abuse needs to be consistent, and police officers must be objective and proactive in child abuse investigations. The most effective approach to child abuse investigations is based on interagency coordination and planning. Social workers, physicians, therapists, prosecutors, judges, and police officers all have important roles to play. Police investigators should be trained and experienced in objectively investigating child abuse so they can interview children and interrogate suspected offenders. Important considerations in child abuse investigations are listed, along with procedures for working with medical professionals and obtaining medical examinations and procedures for handling domestic disturbance calls and placing a child in emergency protective custody. A sample child sexual assault protocol for use by police investigators and a list of organizations involved in child abuse investigations are included. 13 references
