An article in daily crime report states that a 21 years old staffers resident was walking in his area and talking on phone, when he was approached by two guys, asking him if they could use his phone, when he refused to lend them his phone, few moments later he felt something heavy on the back his head and he fell on the ground and those two guys took his phone and the cash he had and fled from the scene on foot. This type of behavior is intolerable; now people can 't even take a walk in their area and have the freedom of using phone? They have to hide their phone away in the fear of being robbed and expect that someone might be following them to take away his/her belongings. This is a typical criminal justice example, that we need more security not only in the famous areas but also in the residential areas where people 's lives could be in danger any minute. I wonder once the suspects are caught, would they be put in jail or grant a bail, since the prisons are already full of criminals and there is no space for any minor criminals. Is it guaranteed that after being granted a bail, the suspects won 't repeat this incident? This may seem like a minor case, or daily story, but the people who are the victim to such crimes actually don 't observe this as a minor crime and they want full justice from the police.

The purpose of this abstract is to critically review the primary data sources used in the criminological research. The two key factors that measures crime are distinguished: official crime statistics, which are based on the compile data records of offenders and offenses processed by the police, courts, and corrections agencies; and unofficial crime statistics, which are produced by people and agencies outside the criminal justice system whom can add value to the data source (Regoli, Robert M., and Hewitt, John D., 2008, p 62). This abstract will discuss the strengths, weaknesses and differences of both data sources using arrests and self-reports to calculate the prevalence of crime in the United States.
According to Rachel Boba, “Crime analysis is a law enforcement function that involves systematic analysis for identifying and analyzing patterns and trends in crime and disorder” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime analysis).The information on these patterns can assist law enforcement agencies in the deployment of resources in a more effective manner; it can also help detectives to identify and catch suspects. Crime analysis also plays a role in improvising solutions to crime problems, and developing crime prevention strategies. There are various types of technology that is used in crime analysis. Crime analysis relies heavily on computer technology, and over the past fifteen years there has been a significant improvement in computer hardware and
There are a lot of social problems in my community. The most current social issue is that Newark, NJ has laid off 167 police officials on November 30th of 2010. This was 14% of the police working for Newark. They were discharged from several precincts within Newark. Jen Chung from Gothamist stated "crime has increased there have been numerous carjacking’s—victims include a staffer in the NJ Attorney General's office and a Newark school principal—and shootings (since Thursday, four people have been shot dead and six have been wounded)."

The Uniform Crime Report, which was developed in the 1930s, is commonly used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a record of crimes committed all across the United States. These crimes, which fall under two categories, Part I and Part II offenses, are reported by local police to the Federal Bureau of Investigation each year. Part I offenses are considered to be the more serious of crimes recognized by society. Such examples of this are homicide, forcible rape, robbery, arson, motor vehicle theft, etc. Part II offenses are those that are considered less serious, such as fraud, simple assault, drug abuse, gambling, stolen property, embezzlement, etc. Part I crimes can also be subdivided into what are known as violent crimes and
How would you feel if your race represented a sigma- one of such that is viewed negatively upon-causing government officials to provide the bare minimum of resources for you to function just below the poverty threshold? Chicago, the 3rd largest populated city in the U.S followed by it having the 3rd largest black population in the U.S according to the 2010 U.S census report is a city that raises many questions. The murder rate in Chicago has inclined rapidly over the past 10 years “A total of 510 Chicagoans were murdered in 2008, compared to 445 in 2007” according to The University of Chicago Crime
Nothing accomplishes more to destroy our families than fierce crimes, weapons, groups, drugs, and the trepidation that strolls close by those fear. Savage crimes and casualty rights have turned into a noteworthy sympathy toward most residents in America. Insights demonstrate a decrease in savage crimes in our nation and an expansion in our national jail populace. Discharged detainees carry out most rough violations. Firearm control enactment, change programs, casualty rights mindfulness, and different projects are plenteous in our nation, yet do little to mitigate fierce crimes. On this paper I will try to display the liberals and traditionalist perspectives on this issue and on my own personal perspectives.
The cities in this countdown are based on the population size of each region and the number of crimes that take place. Each individual crime is tallied per thousand residents. Violent and property crimes including burglary, homicide, rape, armed robbery, assault, and vehicle theft are all accounted for in this study. Thanks to the Neighborhood Scouts and law enforcement for providing the information for the safest cities to live in the United States.
The Universal Crime Report (UCR) is a nationwide program that collects data and statistical information concerning crime in the US. Some examples of these crimes include murder, robbery, aggravated assault, hate crimes and many more. The UCR is a collaborative program that reports information from all cities and towns across the country and involves different law enforcement at various levels of government. The UCR is very useful in today’s law enforcement. The UCR provides law enforcement with information that they use to help budget the money that is needed to protect our society. The UCR evaluates crime data, combines data to get an overall picture of the crimes, identify trends, and looks to see where improvement is needed.
The criminal justice system is continually looking for ways to take preventative measures to halt crime before it happens however when faced with defining attempted crimes the courts have found it difficult to determine when an action should be punished the same or lesser than a completed crime. However, there are three types of inchoate crimes that can be punishable by law as these crimes are the beginning steps of the crime. The three types of offenses include solicitation defined as persuading or encouraging one to commit a crime, conspiracy which is the agreement to commit crime and possibly act on agreement and attempt is the unsuccessful
Law enforcement agencies like State, Local, Tribal, colleges and universities are all included in these two different reporting systems that they use to create and send data to the Federal Bureau of Investigation so that other police agencies can have data on the number of crimes that are committed, where committed, if anyone was a victim or was it a victimless crime and information about the offender. Out of the two reports that will be discussed in this paper, the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) was first created in 1929. However, when we think of that year it is usually about crime statistics but of the Wall Street Crash and great depression. While the second reporting system that of the National-Incident Based Reporting System was not created
From the day our government began to keep an accounting of criminal activity, there have been arguments over crime statistics. The Uniform Crime Report (UCR), Self-Report Surveys (SRS), and the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) are three methods in which the government collects data, and monitors criminal activity in the United States. The Uniform Crime Reports, Self-Report Surveys, and the National Crime Victimization Survey each have both positive and negative attributes that have influenced different aspects of society.
Chapter 2 allows readers to visualize and understand the concept of the most severe crimes to the least serious crimes. The chapter introduces the Uniform Crime Reports and the issues within the reports. Part one crimes include two subcategories: crimes against the person and crimes against property. Part two crimes are considered everything else that part one and two did not include. Historical trends made a difference and shift the crime rate of the Uniform Crime Reports. Furthermore, part one crimes discussed the different degrees and differences. Crimes are classified by the severity between a state’s guidelines and the Uniform Crime Reports ‘guidelines. For instance, the Uniform Crime Reports’ guidelines can consider an aggravated battery
Parole (early release from prison) is often referred to as the back door to the US corrections system. The concept of parole dates back to the establishment of the Elmira Reformatory. The goal of the Elmira Reformatory was to rehabilitate and reform the criminal instead of following the traditional method of silence, obedience, and labor. Parole was originally set up to encourage prisoners to do well, keep their noses clean, and become model prisoners. Once a prisoner had shown rehabilitation and reform they were released prior to the execution of their full sentence.
Crime in Urban America has been around for many years, it is atrocious and there are many reasons why people commit these crimes. Crime is a big issue all around the world and while there is more production of drugs and loss of jobs, the crime rate will continue to increase day by day. While there are many motives that contribute to crime the most obvious causes would be poverty which causes the poor to adapt into a violent and aggressive behavior to which later becomes ingrained into them. The environment where a person grows up in which could consist of gangs that participate in illegal activities. Abuse of drugs or alcohol attribute to crime because people commit abominable crimes while under the influence. The anger that an individual
