When the victim is a child by Debra Whitcomb( Book )

This report is intended as a guide to judges, prosecutors, legislators, and other involved professionals who are interested in implementing strategies or modifying existing practices to improve the treatment of child victims and witnesses in their jurisdictions. Part I of this document provides an overview of the literature and a preliminary explanation of the problems faced by child victims in the criminal justice system. The two chapters in this section show the current state of affairs and support the premise that child victims have special needs in the criminal justice system. Part ii, Innovative Practice: Legal Issues and Practical Concerns, presents a discussion of popular techniques used to ameliorate some of these problems. The discussion of these innovations has been divided into topic areas, with separate chapters examining: (1) competency of child witnesses; (2) exclusion of spectators; (3) attempts to avoid direct confrontation; (4) videotaped depositions and statements; (5) special exceptions to hearsay; (6) use of expert witnesses; (7) the victim advocate; and (8) streamlining the adjudication process. Each of these chapters includes a discussion of the legal and practical concerns that arise from these innovations. Part ii includes a state-by-state chart of current statutory provisions relevant to child victims and witnesses and a list of complete citations for the statutes analyzed. Part iii contains conclusions and establishes the need for further research in the field. Appendices contain guidelines for interviewing child victims; conditions imposed on the use of videotaped presentations; and guidelines for videotaping a child's statements. (Nb)

Challenges and choices for crime-fighting technology : federal support of state and local law enforcement by William Schwabe( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the American federal system, most law is cast as state statutes and local ordinances; accordingly, most law enforcement is the responsibility of state and local agencies. Federal law and federal law enforcement come into play only where there is rationale for it, consistent with the Constitution. Within this framework, a clear role has been identified for federal support of state and local agencies. This report provides findings of a study of technology in use or needed by law enforcement agencies at the state and local level, for the purpose of informing federal policymakers as they consider technology-related support for these agencies. In addition, it seeks to characterize the obstacles that exist to technology adoption by law enforcement agencies and to characterize the perceived effects of federal assistance programs intended to facilitate the process. The study findings are based on a nationwide Law Enforcement Technology Survey and a similar Forensics Technology Survey (FTS) conducted in late spring and early summer2000, interviews conducted throughout the year, focus groups conducted in autumn 2000, and review of an extensive, largely nonacademic literature.

Long-term effects of law enforcement's post-9/11 focus on counterterrorism and homeland security( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the need for increased counterterrorism (CT) and homeland security (HS) efforts at the federal, state, and local levels has taken the spotlight in public safety efforts. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, many law enforcement agencies (LEAs) shifted more resources toward developing CT and HS capabilities, and the federal government continues to support these efforts with grants provided through the Department of Homeland Security. This monograph examines the long-term adjustments that large urban LEAs have made to accommodate the focus on CT and HS, as well as the advantages and challenges associated with it. The study relies primarily on in-depth case studies of five large urban LEAs, as well as a review of federal HS grant programs and a quantitative analysis of the potential costs associated with shifting law enforcement personnel from traditional policing to focus on HS and CT functions. Major trends among the five case study LEAs include the creation of specialized departments and units, as well as an increased emphasis on information-sharing, which, nationwide, has led to the creation of fusion centers that serve as formal hubs for regional information-sharing networks. LEAs' HS and CT efforts are also greatly influenced by the restrictions and requirements associated with federal HS grant funding. Finally, using cost-of-crime estimates, it is possible to partially quantify the costs associated with LEAs' shifting of personnel away from traditional crime prevention toward CT and HS -- there are also clear benefits associated with law enforcement's focus on CT and HS, but they are difficult to quantify, and this is posing a challenge for LEAs as the economic downturn puts pressure on public budgets
