Cyber criminals on trial by Russell G Smith( )

"This book provides the first international study of the manner in which cyber criminals have been dealt with by the judicial process, and anticipates how prosecutors will try to bring criminals to the courts in future. It is a sequel to the groundbreaking Electronic Theft: Unlawful Acquisition in Cyberspace by Grabosky, Smith and Dempsey (Cambridge University Press, 2001). Some of the most prominent cases from around the world have been presented in an attempt to discern trends in the handling of cases, and common factors and problems that emerged during the processes of prosecution, trial and sentencing." "This is a valuable resource for all those who seek to understand how the difficult task of convicting cyber criminals can be achieved in a borderless world."--
Lengthening the arm of the law : enhancing police resources in the twenty-first century by Julie Ayling( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Relentless fiscal pressures faced by the public police over the last few decades have meant that police organisations have had to find new ways to obtain and harness the resources needed to achieve their goals. Through entering into relationships of coercion, commercial exchange, and gift with a wide variety of external institutions and individuals operating in both public and private capacities, police organisations have risen to this challenge. Indeed, police organisations are increasingly operating within a business paradigm. But what are the benefits of these relationships and the nature of the risks that might accompany reliance upon them? This book examines these new modes of exchange between police and 'outsiders' and explores how far these relationships can be taken before certain fundamental values - equity in the distribution of policing, cost-effectiveness in the delivery of police services, and the legitimacy of the police institution itself - are placed in jeopardy."--
Crime and terrorism by Peter N Grabosky( )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terrorism and crime are two areas of knowledge that have traditionally been looked at independently. In this timely and original text, two of the leading authors in the field provide a clear and thorough look at terrorism from a criminological perspective. Integrating the latest research, the book explores the motives of criminals and terrorists, the causes of crime and terrorism and the impact of the law and the legal system. Central to this exploration, the authors examine the nexus between criminal and terrorist organizations, and the commonalities and differences between them and what this means for public policy and safety and security within states. Cross-cultural and international in perspective, this is a fresh and original text that will appeal to undergraduates, academics, and researchers in criminology, politics, international relations, sociology, communication and cultural studies--Product description
