Keeping the peace police discretion and the mentally disordered in Chicago, 1980-1981 by Linda A Teplin ( )
in Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Data on police-citizen encounters were collected to explore the peacekeeping functions of the police and their handling of encounters with mentally ill persons. The data were gathered through observations by researchers riding in police cars in two Chicago police districts during a 14-month period in 1980-1981. There are two parts to this dataset. First, information was collected once per shift on the general level of activity during the shift and the observer's perceptions of emotions/attitudes displayed by the police officers he/she observed. Also, information is included for each of the 270 shifts about the personal characteristics, work history, and working relationships of the police officers observed. The second part of the dataset contains detailed information on each police-citizen encounter including its nature, location, police actions and/or responses, citizens involved, and their characteristics and behavior. A unique and consistent shift identification number is attached to each encounter so that information about police officer characteristics from the first ("shift-level") part of the dataset may be matched with the second ("encounter-level") part. Missing data were recoded to 9's by the Principal Investigator and can mean either actual missing data or unknown or inapplicable data

in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The data were collected following the invasion of Cambodia in May 1970, by questionnaires mailed to presidents, faculty chairmen, and student body presidents of all colleges and universities in the United States. Except for coding to preserve anonymity, the data include information on the school such as location, size, sex of students, presence of ROTC on campus, academic emphasis, acceptance standards, and dollars expended per student. The respondents were queried about the types of incidents which occurred on their campuses. These included incidents in which the National Guard was called, off-campus police used, one or more protestors arrested, temporary restraining orders or injunctions obtained, teach-ins, rallies, or discussion groups took the place of regular academic activities, and where Black demands or racism were issues. Other incidents examined were those involving destructiveness by students that took place off campus and incidents involving serious damage to or the destruction of property, personal injury, or death. The seriousness of the incidents was also reported as well as the response of the faculty, administration, and outside government units. The respondents were asked what plans were prepared before May of 1970 to handle unrest, and the degree to which these were implemented, as well as their proposals to curb or limit future outbreaks
Evaluation of intensive probation in Milwaukee, 1980-1981 by Joseph Romm ( )
in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results and impact of a two-year experiment in innovative probation practices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After being classified according to the Wisconsin risk and needs assessment scale, individuals who had been sentenced to probation between January 2, 1980 and June 30, 1981 and had reported to the probation department for intake were randomly assigned to one of eight experimental and control groups. The experiment was limited to adult residents of Milwaukee County who were not already on probation, were not judged to be severe psychotic or severe sex-deviant cases, and were not assigned to jail work-release sentences of more than ten days followed by probation (Huber cases). There are three files in this data collection: the Reassessment file, the Admissions/Terminations file, and the Chronological file. Each case in the Reassessment and Admissions/Terminations files represents data on an individual probationer. There are 84 variables for 1343 cases in the Reassessment file and 218 variables for 1922 cases in the Admissions/Terminations file, both files have logical record lengths of 100 characters. Of the 1922 cases for which admissions data were collected (about 133 variables), 397 cases also have termination data available (an additional 85 variables). Cases in the Chronological file are records of probation agent contacts with probationers over the course of the study. There are 17 variables for 47,169 cases (contacts) in this file which includes information on 1781 probationers. As many as 270 contacts with a single probationer are recorded. This file has a logical record length of 80.... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/08276.xml

Police Referral Practices and Social Service Agency Practices in Three Metropolitan Areas, 1977 by Elinor Ostrom ( )
in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The dataset contains two related studies conducted in the metropolitan areas of St. Louis, Missouri, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida, and Rochester, New York. The study of police referral practices provides information on the types of calls made to police departments, the referrals made to social service agencies from these calls, and the pattern of citizen demands. Data for this study were collected from 26,465 calls for police service at 21 police departments. The 36 variables include the nature of the call, characteristics of the caller, and the type of agency receiving the referral. The sampling frame for the study of social service agency practices was any agency within the three metropolitan areas that agreed to participate in the study, accepted police referrals, and dealt with at least one of ten selected social problems (e.g., drug abuse, suicide prevention, aid to the elderly). The study classifies agencies according to the extent of their cooperation with the police, the range of the social services they provide, and their history of service provision. Budget information was also obtained to calculate the costs of alternative methods of social service delivery
