Uniform Crime Reports, 1966-1976 by United States( )

in Undetermined and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Federal Bureau of Investigation compiled the Uniform Crime Reports to serve as periodic nationwide assessments of reported crime not available elsewhere in the criminal justice system. By 1976, there were over 13,000 law enforcement agencies contributing reports either directly or through their state reporting program. The participating agencies represent 98% of the United States population living in Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), 94% of the population in other cities, and 89% of the rural population. (The combined coverage accounts for 96% of the total national population, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau). The data were obtained from police and sheriffs' departments' records due to their ready access to information regarding offenses, arrests, and value estimates of stolen and recovered property. The agencies reported the number of offenses that became known to them on a monthly basis, according to Crime Index categories of serious offenses: murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. This count is taken from a record received by the law enforcement agency from victims or other sources and/or those discovered by officers

Judicial Decision Guidelines for Bail: The Philadelphia Experiment, 1981-1982 by John S Goldkamp( )

in Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study, sponsored by the National Institute of Justice and the National Institute of Corrections, was to test the utility of a first version of bail guidelines. A sample of judges, based upon a stratified quota sampling design, was selected from the Philadelphia Municipal Court. Eight judges were randomly selected to use guidelines or be "experimental judges", and eight were randomly selected to be nonguidelines or "control judges." Data were taken from defendants' files and include number of suspects involved, number of different offenses charged, most serious injury experienced by the victim(s), preliminary arraignment disposition, amount of bail, socioeconomic status and demographics of the defendant, prior criminal history, and reason for granting or denying bail
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
Law Enforcement Assistance Administration Profile Data, [1968-1978] by Research, and Statistics Office of Justice Assistance( )

in Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Law Enforcement Assistance Administration File (PROFILE) System was designed for the automated storage and retrieval of information describing BJS-sponsored programs. The two types of data elements used to describe the projects in this file are basic data and program descriptors. The basic data elements include the title of the grant, information regarding the location of the grantee and the project, critical funding dates, the government level and type of grantee, financial data, the name of the project director, indication of the availability of reports, and appropriate identification numbers. The program descriptors elements form the program classification system and describe the key characteristics of the program. Key characteristics include subject, primary and secondary activity, whether it affects a juvenile or adult problem, and what specific crimes, clients, staff, program strategies, agencies, equipment or research methods are to be used or affected by the project
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

Sanctions in the Justice System, 1942-1977: The Effects on Offenders in Racine, Wisconsin by Lyle W Shannon( )

in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this data collection was to evaluate the effectiveness of judicial intervention and varying degrees of sanction severity by comparing persons who have been processed at the juvenile or adult level in the justice system with persons who have not. The main research question was whether the number of judicial interventions and severity of sanctions had any effects on the seriousness of offenders' future offenses or the decision to desist from such behavior. Variables include characteristics of the person who had the police contact as well as items specific to a particular police contact. Others are the number of police contacts, seriousness of police contacts, severity of sanctions, and age, cohort, and decade the contact occurred

New Jersey Statewide Criminal Justice Guidelines Evaluation, 1979 by Richard F Sparks( )

in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project was established to study the development, implementation, and use of statewide sentencing guidelines and to report the perceptions of criminal justice system personnel and inmates regarding those guidelines. Funded by the National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice, the project was carried out by the Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice from October 1978 to June 1981. One part of the project consisted of interviews to determine the opinions of inmates about the relative seriousness of offenses, severity of punishments, appropriateness of penalties for various kinds of crimes, and the use of sentencing guidelines to structure judicial sentencing decisions. The 1979 New Jersey inmate data are in two files: Inmate Background Data, and Inmate Survey Data. The Inmate Background Data file includes 25 variables containing socio-economic, residential, and current and prior criminal history information in a random sample of Rahway, New Jersey State Prison inmates. Background information was collected for all of the inmates selected to participate in the 1979 New Jersey inmate survey. However, not all of those inmates selected agreed to be interviewed when the actual survey was conducted. The inmate background data file, therefore, includes information on both survey respondents and non-respondents. Frequency distributions for the variables are included in the Inmate Survey Data file, as is the survey instrument
