This collection evaluates the impact of a new foot patrol plan, implemented by the Boston Police Department, on incidents of crime and neighborhood disturbances. Part 1 contains information on service calls by types of criminal offenses such as murder, rape, aggravated assault, simple assault, robbery, larceny, burglary, and auto theft. It also contains data on types of community disturbances such as noisy party, gang, or minor disturbance and response priority of the incidents. Response priorities are classified according to a four-level scale: Priority 1: emergency calls including crimes in progress, high risk or personal injury, and medical emergencies, Priority 2: calls of intermediate urgency, Priority 3: calls not requiring immediate response, Priority 4: calls of undetermined priority. Parts 2 and 3 include information about patrol time used in each of the three daily shifts during the pre- and post-intervention periods.

Psychological and Behavioral Effects of Bias- and Non-Bias-Motivated Assault in Boston, Massachusetts, 1992-1997 by Luís Garcia( )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study sought to inform various issues related to the extent of victims' adverse psychological and behavioral reactions to aggravated assault differentiated by the offenders' bias or non-bias motives. The goals of the research included (1) identifying the individual and situational factors related to bias- and non-bias-motivated aggravated assault, (2) determining the comparative severity and duration of psychological after-effects attributed to the victimization experience, and (3) measuring the comparative extent of behavioral avoidance strategies of victims. Data were collected on all 560 cases from the Boston Police Department's Community Disorders Unit from 1992 to 1997 that involved victim of a bias-motivated aggravated assault. In addition, data were collected on a 10-percent stratified random sample of victims of non-bias assaults within the city of Boston from 1993 to 1997, resulting in another 544 cases. For each of the cases, information was collected from each police incident report. Additionally, the researchers attempted to contact each victim in the sample to participate in a survey about their victimization experiences. The victim questionnaires included questions in five general categories: (1) incident information, (2) police response, (3) prosecutor response, (4) personal impact of the crime, and (5) respondent's personal characteristics. Criminal history variables were also collected regarding the number and type of adult and juvenile arrest charges against offenders and victims, as well as dispositions and arraignment dates ...

Widerstand in Organisationen, Organisationen im Widerstand virtuelle Plattformen, Edupunks und der nachfolgende Staat by Ayad Al-Ani( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Zeit scheint reif für eine neue Bewertung des Individuums in Organisationen. Neue Technologien und globalisierte Rahmenbedingungen verlangen äußerst kreative Anstrengungen im Rahmen von Freiräumen, die die neuen netzwerkartigen Organisationsformen nun erstmals ermöglichen. Geläufige Management- und Organisationsansätze stehen der Frage, wie Individualität und Führung solcher divergenter Interessen und Talente unter einen Hut zu bringen seien, noch ratlos gegenüber. Zwar wurden solche Diskussionen in den 60er und 70er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts bereits geführt, allerdings unter einem politischen Primat, das so heute nicht mehr geläufig ist. Technisierung und Globalisierung haben nun eine neue Situation geschaffen. Dieses Buchprojekt soll skizzieren, wie sich die vor uns liegende Transformationsphase der schrittweisen bis stürmischen Zurückdrängung der Hierarchie zugunsten virtueller Plattformen und Kooperationen freier Produzenten in Wirtschaft und Politik entwickeln kann. Aufgezeigt wird unter anderem, welche Möglichkeiten zur Umsetzung eigener Interessen und Motivationen künftig zur Verfügung stehen und welcher Preis für diese radikale Individualisierung gezahlt werden muss. Der Inhalt Die Organisation von Individualität.-Führung in Netzwerken.- "To resist is to create": Das Individuum als Motor von InnovationenDie Zielgruppen Wirtschafts- und OrganisationssoziologInnen.- OrganisationsberaterInnen.- Führungskräfte, die sich mit dem Thema Innovation beschäftigen .- BetriebswirtInnen.- InformatikerInnen.- KommunikationswissenschaftlerInnen.- PolitikwissenschaftlerInnenDer AutorDr. Dr. Ayad Al-Ani ist Professor an der Hertie School of Governance, Berlin
