This data collection contains data on juvenile delinquency and adult crime for three birth cohorts in Racine, Wisconsin. The three birth cohorts are for the years 1942, 1949, and 1955. The 1942 cohort consists of 1,352 persons, the 1949 cohort of 2,099 persons, and the 1955 cohort of 2,676, for a total of 6,127 persons. These data are organized into 3 basic types of datasets: (1) Indiviudal-level 'Police contact' data for all 3 cohorts, (2) Individual-level interview and contact data for the 1942 and 1949 cohorts, and (3) Individual-level contact data classified by age for all three cohorts, 'Age-by-Age' data. There are 8 data files in all. The individual-level contact data sets, referred to as the 'police contact data, ' contain equivalent data for all three cohorts. The data consist of the type and frequency of police contacts by individuals as well as the date, location, and number of the first contact. Individual cohort members are the units of analysis. The interview datasets contain data on police contacts as well as a number of variables measured during personal interviews with a sample of the 1942 and 1949 cohorts.

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

Police Referral Practices and Social Service Agency Practices in Three Metropolitan Areas, 1977 by Elinor Ostrom( )

in Undetermined and held by 12 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
