Drug law enforcement: a review of the evaluation literature by Lorraine Ann Mazerolle( )

1 edition published in 2007 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article describes the results of a systematic review of drug law enforcement evaluations. The authors describe the search procedures and document the results in five main categories: international/national interventions (e.g., interdiction and drug seizure), reactive/ directed interventions (e.g., crackdowns, raids, buy-busts, saturation patrol, etc.), proactive/ partnership interventions (e.g., third-party policing, problem-oriented policing, community policing, drug nuisance abatement, etc.), individualized interventions (e.g., arrest referral and diversion), or interventions that used a combination of reactive/directed and proactive/ partnership strategies. Results indicate that proactive interventions involving partnerships between the police and third parties and/or community entities appear to be more effective at reducing both drug and nondrug problems in drug problem places than are reactive/ directed approaches. But the general quality of research in drug law enforcement is poor, the range of interventions that have been evaluated is limited, and more high-quality research is needed across a greater variety of drug interventions

Street-level drug law enforcement: A meta-analytical review by Lorraine Ann Mazerolle( )

1 edition published in 2006 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper presents the results of the first ever systematic review of street-level drug law enforcement interventions. The paper has undergone extensive review - both through the peer review process of the Journal of Experimental Criminology (where it is now published) as well as through the formal review processes of the Campbell Collaboration. An abdriged version of our research findings appear as the first in a new series published by the US Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services entitled Crime Prevention Research Reviews. The Journal of Experimental Criminology is recognised as a Tier 2 international journal by the University of Maryland criminology rankings process. A slighly modified version of the paper appears as one of ten sanctioned reviews of the Crime and Justice Group of the Campbell Collaboration (see http://www.campbellcollaboration.org/CCJG/index.asp). The Campbell Collaboration (C2) is an independent, international, non-profit organization that strives to provide decision-makers with evidence-based information to empower them to make well-informed decisions about the effects of interventions in the social, behavioral and educational arenas. The Campbell Collaboration is a partner with the internationally acclaimed Cochrane Collaboration and is supported by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), as well as a number of other international organizations, including the Norwegian and Danish governments
Third Party Policing: Prospects, Challenges and Implications for Regulators by Lorraine Ann Mazerolle( )

1 edition published in 2002 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

'Third party policing' describes police efforts to persuade or coerce third parties, such as landlords, parents, local governments and other regulators, and business owners, to take some responsibility for preventing crime or reducing crime problems. In third party policing, the police create crime control guardians in locations or situations where crime control guardianship was previously absent. Sometimes this results from cooperative consultation with community members. At other times, the police use coercive threats, with the backing of a range of civil and regulatory laws, to engage third parties into taking some crime control responsibility. Our paper describes the dimensions of third party policing and identifies its prospects and challenges, including its implications for regulators

Managing citizen calls to the police: the impact of Baltimore's 3-1-1 call system by Lorraine Ann Mazerolle( )

1 edition published in 2002 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Research Summary: Our paper explores the impact of implementing a nonemergency 3-1-1 call system in Baltimore, Maryland. We found a large (34.2%) reduction in 9-1-1 calls following the introduction of the 3-1-1 nonemergency call system. Many, but not all, of these calls simply migrated over to the 3-1-1 call system. Overall, we identified a 7.7% reduction in recorded citizen calls to the police post 3-1-1 intervention. This recorded reduction in citizen calls was confounded by an increase in high priority calls to the 9-1-1 system (27.5%), a large overall reduction in low priority calls (54.3%), and an estimated increase (perhaps 8%) in unrecorded calls to the police. We also note a small increase in response times to high priority 9-1-1 calls following the implementation of the 3-1-1 call system and virtually no change in the amount of officer time available for community policing or problem-oriented policing activities. Policy Implications: Our findings suggest that nonemergency call systems, such as 3-1-1, can greatly facilitate police efforts to better handle citizen calls for police service. However, the intrinsic value of nonemergency call systems is tightly woven with a police department's willingness to change dispatch policies (especially for those calls received via the 3-1-1 system), reallocate patrol resources, and adopt organizational reforms to support alternative methods (apart from dispatch) for handling nonemergency calls for service."

Social behaviour in public space: an analysis of behavioural adaptations to CCTV by Lorraine Ann Mazerolle( )

1 edition published in 2002 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper explores how people behave when CCTV cameras operate in public space. We examine how behavioral patterns change over time, and assess the short-term influence of CCTV on behavior in public space. Using videotape footage of four CCTV sites, we document pro-social, anti-social, traffic and guardianship behaviors over a four-month study period. Our study of CCTV in Cincinnati found that surveillance cameras create somewhat of an initial deterrent effect in the month, perhaps two months, following implementation. We conclude that erecting signs to notify people about the cameras could possibly increase the level of deterrence of CCTV. Signs about CCTV cameras in operation would also address some of the fairness issues raised by civil libertarians. We also suggest that shifting CCTV cameras around on a frequent basis could solve two dilemmas: first, it would increase the number of hotspots under surveillance, and hence remove some of the inequities observed in CCTV deployment; second, short and periodic, as opposed to permanent, deployment of CCTV cameras would capitalize upon some of the initial deterrent effects of the cameras that are observed in our data
