Urban street gang enforcement by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strategies to enhance prosecution of gang-related crimes are presented, with a focus on enforcement and prosecution targeting urban street gangs. The model programs introduced offer strategies largely based on the practical experiences of agencies that participated in a demonstration program, the Urban Street Gang Drug Trafficking Enforcement Program, designed to establish model approaches to prevention and suppression of gang violence. The monograph offers a step-by-step guide to designing and implementing a program based on strategies from the seven demonstration sites. The following chapters guide program implementation: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Key Elements of the Gang Suppression Prototype"; (3) "Planning and Analysis"; (4) "Gang Information and Intelligence Systems"; (5)"Gang Suppression Operations and Tactics"; (6) "Interagency Cooperation and Collaboration"; (7) "Legal Issues"; and (8) "Evaluation." Appendixes contain an annotated bibliography and sources for further information. (Contains 85 endnotes and 65 references.) (Sld)
Ethical use of information technologies in education : important issues for America's schools by Jay P Sivin( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to the rapid growth of computer crime and such illegitimate practices as piracy and fraud, the National Institute of Justice and the Office for Educational Research and Improvement have formed a partnership to promote school programs on the ethical uses of new technologies. This report, the first of the partnership, is designed to assist schools in preparing a strategy to address technology-related issues. It begins by presenting six possible scenarios to illustrate the importance of policies and educational programs to address such issues as physical and intellectual property rights, the right to privacy, and limitations on the right to free expression. It then offers an overview of technology ethics issues for teachers, school administrators, and members of the community concerned about school policy, and explores the answers to four questions: (1) why technology issues are important for U.S. society; (2) how information technology can change what is considered to be ethical behavior; (3) why so many students find the concept of intellectual property confusing; and (4) what schools can do to address these problems. Discussion of what schools can do focuses on defining and implementing school policy and incorporating technology ethics issues into the curriculum. Additional information is presented in four "boxes": (1) The Impact of Computer-Related Crime; (2) Information Technology and the Law; (3) Cost-Effective Purchasing Options for Schools; and (4) Teaching Ideas from the Computer Learning Foundation's Responsible Computing Contest. Nineteen endnotes are provided as well as a list of 43 references; a list of 10 associations and agencies to contact for further information is appended. (BBM)

Combat deployment and the returning police officer by Barbara Webster( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Project Background: The Institute for Law and Justice (ILJ) conducted an exploratory study for the COPS Office to address two questions: (1): What are police agencies doing to help their officers make successful transitions from combat zones to their work, families, and communities? (2): What more should be done to assist in this effort? The study was launched during a period of heightened public awareness of PTSD and other mental health concerns among military personnel and veterans. New research reports were published regularly on combat stress and PTSD among those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Major media outlets drew attention to these reports and to unmet needs for mental health care. In addition, veterans' organizations, alternative media, and blogs dedicated to PTSD and combat kept these issues before the public. Much less attention, however, had been paid to the effects of combat stress on police officers or police organizations. The ILJ project involved reviewing literature from multiple disciplines; identifying resources that address PTSD related to combat and natural disasters; and conducting interviews with 30 police managers (primarily at large agencies) and other service providers. The police representatives interviewed were a mix of human resources directors and managers, behavioral services personnel, and sworn police managers. They were asked about the number of police personnel who had been called to active duty; effects of combat zone deployment on returning police officers and the department; new personnel policies or programs developed specifically to address returning officers' needs; and ideas for what else the department or other agencies might do in this area. In addition, eight reviewers (psychologists and policing practitioners) provided written comments on drafts of this

Street-level narcotics enforcement by Edward F Connors( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses policing the retail market of drugs on the street, not the wholesale drug distribution network. Street narcotics enforcement tactics consist of directed patrol, executing outstanding warrants, arrests of dealers and other users for other offenses, traffic enforcement, roadblocks or checkpoints, simple surveillance and arrest, informant buys, undercover police buys, buy/busts, reverse stings, and crack house raids. These tactics are discussed individually in conjunction with the background for choosing and carrying out particular tactics. Factors influencing street level drug trade are examined and the application of tactics to specific cities is discussed. The physical setting and management of a narcotics strategy is described; community involvement is encouraged. Finally, principles of program evaluation are outlined. Illustrations of narcotics strategies as applied in Miami, Rochester, Dallas, Washington, and Birmingham are provided. (NCJRS, modified)
