Abstract Research methods are procedures used for gathering information. The information observed is individual or aggregate data on a phenomenon. Traditionally, there are wide ranges of research methods in criminal justice. The most commonly used are survey methods and data analysis. According to Kleck et al; (2006) “survey research is the dominant method of collecting information followed by use of archived data.’’
According to the Department of Justice, in their Patriot Act section, this act allows investigators to use the tools that were already available to investigate organized crime and drug trafficking. This allows law enforcement to use surveillance against crime, and allows law enforcement to investigate without terrorists fleeing, or destroying evidence. This act also created better information sharing among government agencies so that they can communicate more efficiently in order to uncover terrorist plots before they are completed. It has succeeded in its intention to share information within the FBI and local law enforcement. One of the greatest things that this act enabled was that it allowed the law to be updated in order to reflect new technologies.
Adapting spatial clustering (block) analysis to support crime analysis and decision making. Law enforcement has been using these methods to examine the associations between crime and environment features, to allocate resources for crime prevention in areas where they are most needed.” He also added that best crime analysis should create a good crime prevention policy and planning. Essentially good management would reduce crime rate when it follows new information
Efforts taken to increase the effort are the most basic ones. They start with target-hardening, which is accomplished by using physical barriers such as locks, anti-robbery screens, and tamper-proof packaging. A more controlled access to facilities in which people can sometimes too easily enter when they should not, through electronic access regulations, baggage and body screenings, and use of entry phones would increase the effort. Target hardening procedures are designed to improve safety and present a stronger security posture; thereby making the school a less attractive target. Adding body screening before entering the school can prevent lots of crime.
The whole process has been presented through a variety of tables and graph, which show the movement of rates. Every step of the research, as well as the each table in the text, were explained in details. This way, it was easy to follow and understand the results, reasons behind them and the whole process of the analysis. Fasani, Bell, and Machin did a very impressive job, making it interesting and readable even for someone who is not very familiar with Econometrics and the topic itself.
No one can deny the convenience and the ease that the Big Data revolution has brought to us. Big Data has changed the way people look at data. However, these advancements have widened the gap between what is possible and what is legally allowed. The scale and ease with which everything can be done in big data has raised concerns on several ethical issues specifically related to privacy, transparency, identity and confidentiality. Through Big Data, developers can now access and tap into varied sources, which can even come from far-flung areas.
The main components that make up our Criminal Justice system are the agencies of law enforcement, judicial court system, and corrections. These three component entities function separately but each work together with each other to achieve the purposes of maintaining law and order, and the public safety of their respective communities that each serves in administering justice. Each of the aforementioned three components generally encompasses a point of view defined as the consensus model (Schmalleger, 2016). The consensus model is a perspective in the criminal justice field which assumes that each of the system’s components press towards a overall achievement and the movement of incidents (cases) and individuals through the process runs smoothly
Based on crime type analysis such as burglaries, an informed decision can be to use the target hardening method which includes car steering column locks and deadlocks on residence doors. Other measure could be to form a community police forum or blocking off the walkways and controlling access to residences and that would be just as effective and much less expensive compared to replacing stolen or vandalized goods and object almost everytime. Community crime awareness education and well identified areas that seek rehabilitation centers or recreational facilities can be also a measure considered if based on a crime analysis shows that young people are the ones committing the majority of the

Myself and all members of the M.A.P.P.S/SPU are fully aware of the importance of information security, given our access to this material. Additionally, with regards to dealing with information security, I have also been the system manager of two distinct and complex data systems. The first being the Voice-box wiretap system. My duties as a member of the Electronic Surveillance Unit consisted of, direct handling of Computer Data Warrants, provisioning of court ordered wiretaps for various NJSP and outside agencies, assisting in the installation of hidden surveillance equipment, and administrating the Voice-box wiretap data system which contained thousands of confidential recordings from hundreds of
Tactical crime mapping is the most concerned kind of crime mapping in light of the fact that it manages the most exceedingly terrible of the most exceedingly terrible crimes that is a quick danger to the general population, for example, homicide, assault, theft, and thievery. The crime expert will assemble the patterns by observer accounts, the weapon utilized, the suspect's physical depiction, and numerous different likenesses put into the record for deciding the suspect of the crimes carried out. At that point amid this sort of crime investigation the cops will be more aware of specific individuals who look like the suspect's depiction and the organization will have more cops in that specific territory to prevent the crime from happening
The biggest obstacle facing officers in the 21st century is simply the rise of technology. Officers depend on technology to complete their everyday duties, shooting radar, typing reports, getting dispatched, running plates. There is no denying technology is a vital and crucial part to policing, a necessary evil. However, now more than ever police officers have to deal with cameras being shoved in their faces, either via a cell phone or dash camera etc, and the ensuing onslaught being posted to FaceBook or other social media outlets, and then being crucified for doing their job to the best of their abilities and to the fullest extent of the law. They live in fear of being chastised for simply carrying out their duties.
