Excerpt
Excerpt: Director?s Message. This year?s Research Prospectus, Building Knowledge About Crime and Justice, outlines how NIJ?s research and development activity will, during 1999, seek to strengthen the Nation's ability to prevent and control crime and to achieve justice. The need for sound research that can guide public policy continues to be compelling. Mayors ask, Which prevention programs work? State legislators ask, What options do we have in designing new sentencing statutes? Police chiefs ask, How can we harness the power of science and technology to enhance criminal investigations? Judges ask, How can we more effectively respond to drug abuse? Prosecutors ask, What benefits might come from implementing the concepts of community and restorative justice? Civic leaders ask, How can we energize community resources to promote safety and reduce fear?.
