A Police guide to surveying citizens and their environment( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph offers an introduction and practical guidelines regarding the development and implementation of two types of surveys that police find increasingly useful: (1) surveys of citizens and (2) surveys of the physical environment. Those conducting a survey must first determine the sample from which they want to obtain data. Random selection is the most popular manner of selecting a representative sample. Surveys can usually be conducted in one of three ways: (1) mailing a questionnaire, (2) questioning by telephone, and (3) personal interviews. Designing the questions requires precision in wording, clarity of thought, and care not to take too much time. Simple data analysis can determine the central tendency, the range of answers, and how representative the sample was. Opinion surveys may themselves help deter crime and reduce fear of crime, while environmental surveys help police quantify the physical characteristics of neighborhoods and link them with specific neighborhood problems. These surveys help identify problems, determine what changes will help solve them, and measure the effectiveness of the efforts

How effective is correctional education, and where do we go from here? : the results of a comprehensive evaluation by Lois M Davis( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 2 million adults are incarcerated in U.S. prisons, and each year more than 700,000 leave federal and state prisons and return to communities. Unfortunately, within three years, 40 percent will be reincarcerated. One reason for this is that ex-offenders lack the knowledge, training, and skills to support a successful return to communities. Trying to reduce such high recidivism rates is partly why states devote resources to educating and training individuals in prison. This raises the question of how effective -- and cost-effective -- correctional education is: an even more salient question given the funding environment states face from the 2008 recession and its continuing aftermath. With funding from the Second Chance Act of 2007, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, asked RAND to help answer this question as part of a comprehensive examination of the current state of correctional education for incarcerated adults and juveniles. The RAND team conducted a systematic review of correctional education programs for incarcerated adults and juveniles. This included a meta-analysis on correctional education's effects on recidivism and postrelease employment outcomes for incarcerated adults, as well as a synthesis of evidence on programs for juveniles. The study also included a nationwide survey of state correctional education directors to understand how correctional education is provided today and the recession's impact. The authors also compared the direct costs of correctional education with those of reincarceration to put the recidivism findings into a broader context
