Evaluation of the Norwegian campaign against the illegal spirits trade. (1/708)

In 1993, a 21m NOK (3m US$) national campaign against trade with illegal spirits (homebrewed or smuggled) was launched in Norway. This article reports results of its evaluation study. Surveys covering the age range 16-80 were carried out just before the campaign started and 1 year later. Half of those responding at baseline as well as a new sample were surveyed after 1 year. While at baseline 48% reported to have drunk and 16% to have bought illegal spirits during the last 12 months, the corresponding figures after 1 year were 42 and 14%. Significant associations between being exposed to the campaign and reduced use and buying of illegal spirits were found. Further, use and buying of illegal spirits at baseline, and stopping to use and buy illegal spirits from baseline to follow-up were analyzed in bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses. In the multivariate prediction of stopping to use illegal spirits, only behavioral norms and significant others' opinions (both measured at baseline) obtained significance.  (+info)

International developments in abortion law from 1988 to 1998. (2/708)

OBJECTIVES: In 2 successive decades since 1967, legal accommodation of abortion has grown in many countries. The objective of this study was to assess whether liberalizing trends have been maintained in the last decade and whether increased protection of women's human rights has influenced legal reform. METHODS: A worldwide review was conducted of legislation and judicial rulings affecting abortion, and legal reforms were measured against governmental commitments made under international human rights treaties and at United Nations conferences. RESULTS: Since 1987, 26 jurisdictions have extended grounds for lawful abortion, and 4 countries have restricted grounds. Additional limits on access to legal abortion services include restrictions on funding of services, mandatory counseling and reflection delay requirements, third-party authorizations, and blockades of abortion clinics. CONCLUSIONS: Progressive liberalization has moved abortion laws from a focus on punishment toward concern with women's health and welfare and with their human rights. However, widespread maternal mortality and morbidity show that reform must be accompanied by accessible abortion services and improved contraceptive care and information.  (+info)

Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of cardinal posttraumatic stress symptoms in school-age children. (3/708)

OBJECTIVES: This report examines the reliability and validity of Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of the cardinal symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHODS: We measured exposure to community violence through the reports of children and their parents and then administered Darryl to a sample of 110 children aged 7 to 9 residing in urban neighborhoods with high crime rates. RESULTS: Darryl's reliability is excellent overall and is acceptable for the reexperiencing, avoidance, and arousal subscales, considered separately. Child reports of exposure to community violence were significantly associated with child reports of PTSD symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Darryl possesses acceptable psychometric properties in a sample of children with frequent exposure to community violence.  (+info)

Evaluating the impact of a street barrier on urban crime. (4/708)

OBJECTIVES: Violence is a major urban public health problem in the United States. The impact of a physical barrier placed across a street in a public housing project to prevent street violence and drug activity was evaluated. METHODS: Hartford Police Department data on violent and drug related crime incidence within the housing project containing the barrier were analyzed by use of a computerized geographic information system. RESULTS: Violent crime decreased 33% on the intervention street during the 15 month period after erection of the barrier, compared with the 15 month period before erection of the barrier, but there was no change in drug related crime. On adjoining streets and surrounding blocks, violent crime decreased 30%-50% but drug related crimes roughly doubled. A non-adjacent area of the housing project and the entire city experienced 26% and 15% decreases in violent crimes, and 414% and 25% increases in drug crimes, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The barrier decreased violent crime but displaced drug crimes to surrounding areas of the housing project. These results have important implications for other cities that have erected or are considering erecting similar barriers.  (+info)

Rapid gas chromatographic analysis of drugs of forensic interest. (5/708)

High-speed gas chromatographic (GC) screening for drugs of forensic relevance is performed using a commercial Flash GC instrument in which the chromatographic column is resistively heated at rates of up to 30 degrees C/s. Temperature programming conditions are varied in an experiment designed to evaluate trade-offs between resolution and analysis time for a mixture of 19 drugs of abuse. All 19 components can be separated with excellent resolution in 90 s. Specific analytes can be analyzed even faster; for example, amphetamine analysis is completed in less than 20 s. Case studies of confiscated street drugs containing amphetamine, cocaine, and heroin are analyzed to evaluate the retention time repeatability. Ten replicate injections over a 2-day period for 3 different drug samples achieved retention time relative standard deviations in the range of 0.48 to 0.81%.  (+info)

Outcome of long stay psychiatric patients resettled in the community: prospective cohort study. (6/708)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the outcome of a population of long stay psychiatric patients resettled in the community. DESIGN: Prospective study with 5 year follow up. SETTING: Over 140 residential settings in north London. SUBJECTS: 670 long stay patients from two London hospitals (Friern and Claybury) discharged to the community from 1985 to 1993. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Continuity and quality of residential care, readmission to hospital, mortality, crime, and vagrancy. RESULTS: Of the 523 patients who survived the 5 year follow up period, 469 (89.6%) were living in the community by the end of follow up, 310 (59.2%) in their original community placement. A third (210) of all patients were readmitted at least once. Crime and homelessness presented few problems. Standardised mortality ratios for the group were comparable with those reported for similar populations. CONCLUSIONS: When carefully planned and adequately resourced, community care for long stay psychiatric patients is beneficial to most individuals and has minimal detrimental effects on society.  (+info)

A case of aldicarb poisoning: a possible murder attempt. (7/708)

A couple showing signs of cholinergic crisis was admitted to the hospital. Analyses with high-performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry conducted on serum, urine, and stomach contents that were collected few hours after first symptoms showed the presence of aldicarb, which is the most potent carbamate insecticide on the market. A murder attempt was suspected because the patients showed the first signs some minutes after drinking coffee upon returning home and no commercial products containing aldicarb were found in the house. Because of the reversibility of inhibition of acetylcholinesterase, the patients recovered after treatment with atropine and toxogonin. They left the hospital after 12 days. To our knowledge, the serum concentrations of aldicarb reported in this paper are the highest reported for a nonfatal case.  (+info)

Prevalence and correlates of survival sex among runaway and homeless youth. (8/708)

OBJECTIVE: This study examined the prevalence and correlates of survival sex among runaway and homeless youths. METHODS: A nationally representative sample of shelter youths and a multicity sample of street youths were interviewed. RESULTS: Approximately 28% of street youths and 10% of shelter youths reported having participated in survival sex, which was associated with age, days away from home, victimization, criminal behaviors, substance use, suicide attempts, sexually transmitted disease, and pregnancy. CONCLUSIONS: Intensive and ongoing services are needed to provide resources and residential assistance to enable runaway and homeless youths to avoid survival sex, which is associated with many problem behaviors.  (+info)

Beyond the basic prohibition from asking an applicant about his or her criminal history on the initial job application, how ban the box laws work varies considerably by state or by city or county if no statewide law has been enacted. For example, while most laws still apply only to public employers, others also apply to government contractors and private employers. Some jurisdictions with laws that apply to private employers provide exemptions for small employers, while others do not. Some jurisdictions prohibit asking about criminal history only at the application stage, while others prohibit the inquiry further into the hiring process such as during or after an interview or after making a conditional offer of employment. Some jurisdictions also take it a step further by incorporating the best practices set forth in the EEOCs 2012 Guidance, prohibiting consideration of certain types of criminal records (e.g., arrest records, sealed or expunged records, etc.), requiring employers to consider ...

The nations crime rate was unchanged last year, holding at the lowest levels since the government began surveying crime victims in 1973, the Justice Department reported Sunday. Since 1993, violent crime as measured by victim surveys has fallen by 57 percent and property crime by 50 percent. The 2004 violent crime rate - assault, sexual assault and armed robbery - was 21.4 victims for every 1,000 people age 12 and older. That amounts to about one violent crime victim for […]

Crime in South Korea is among the lowest compared to other developed nations. Violent crimes (such as homicide, assault and arson) and property crimes (such as theft, fraud and vandalism) make up around four-fifths of all Criminal Code Offences Although South Korea has a lower crime rate than other industrialized countries, the crime rate in 2007 was around 2.9 times higher than in 1978, with the total number of crimes committed rising from 513,165 to 1,965,577. On occasion, sudden changes in circumstance have led to cause short-term fluctuations in the crime rate - for example, the crime rate rose by 15% following the 1997 Asian financial crisis, and dropped by 21% during the first ten days of the 2002 FIFA World Cup. There is also a problem in the nation with foreign criminals targeting it due to its relatively affluent status and the perception that it has lax security. 1.4 percent of crimes in the nation are committed by foreigners, which is quite low considering the 3.5% of the population ...

Recently released arrest and crime data from the California Attorney Generals Office reveal some noticeable recent changes. Until last year, Californias felony arrest rate trend had closely mirrored the states crime rate trend for 20 years. We would expect the two trends to move in similar ways, since most of the crimes reported and used to calculate the crime rate are felonies. But the trends diverged in 2015 after passage of Proposition 47, which reclassified a number of drug and property crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. The felony arrest rate dropped dramatically in 2015, by 30%, while crime rates went up-the violent crime rate rose by 8.4% and the property crime rate by 6.6%. The drop in felony arrests was partly offset by a very noticeable increase in misdemeanor arrests. Still, the total number of arrests dropped by almost 52,000.. Californias total arrest rate-which has been declining over the past two decades-is now at a historic low of 2,944 per 100,000 residents; this is less ...

The Clery Act requires a campus police department to create, maintain, and make available a Daily Crime Log. Crime Log incidents are those crimes reported to the Mines Police Department. They will not match statistics in the Campus Security and Fire Safety Report or annual crime statistics with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations. The purpose of the Daily Crime Log is for recording criminal and alleged criminal incidents, not criminal events that are confirmed through investigation. Additionally, a crime that is unfounded or referred to an outside agency may be included in the Daily Crime Log but is not included for statistical purposes.. The Mines Police list crimes in chronological order by time of the report. The Crime log will list the nature of the crime; the date of the crime reported; date & time the crime occurred; a general location; and a disposition of the crime if known. All personally identifiable information is absent from the report and the campus is not alerted when the ...
A Crime concentration is a spatial area to which high levels of crime incidents are attributed. A crime concentration can be the result of homogeneous or heterogeneous crime incidents. Hotspots are the result of various crimes occurring in relative proximity to each other within predefined human geopolitical or social boundaries. Crime concentrations are smaller units or set of crime targets within a hotspot. A single or a conjunction of crime concentrations within a study area can make up a crime hotspot. Some of the early works in crime analysis aimed to identify hotspots of crime within big regions. These regions could extend as large as states, counties, a group of counties, cities, neighborhoods and police beats. The aim of this approach was to focus on large areas, rather than specific addresses or locations hosting crime events as part of a larger environment. This is important because not all locations are equal generators of crime and not all provide equal opportunity for offenders to ...

Downloadable! Many crimes in Israel, specifically property-related, are perpetrated by those who live outside localities where the crime is committed. As a result, crime rates are strongly affected by settlement patterns: Affluent localities surrounded by poor towns tend to exhibit relatively high crime rates. In order to measure the effect of urban inequality and proximity on crime rates, the Index of Relative Income (IRI) is proposed. This index is estimated as the ratio between the average income in a town and that in its neighbouring localities. As multivariate analysis indicates, the proposed index helps to explain the variation of property crime rates across urban localities, implying that the spatial unevenness of urban development (i.e. aerial proximity of affluent and poor towns) may spur property crimes. The findings of the present study lend support to regional development programs, aimed at minimizing spatial disparities in regional and urban development.

Certainly, we are going need some intervention. I dont know if thats more addictions clinics, but certainly more education on the perils of the drug. Unfortunately, weve got a lot of people who havent got a lot to live ...
A good deal of research in recent years has revisited the relationship between immigration and violent crime. Various scholars have suggested that, contrary to the claims of the classic Chicago School, large immigrant populations might be associated with lower rather than higher rates of criminal violence. A limitation of the research in this area is that it has been based largely on cross-sectional analyses for a restricted range of geographic areas. Using time-series techniques and annual data for metropolitan areas over the 1994-2004 period, we assess the impact of changes in immigration on changes in violent crime rates. The findings of multivariate analyses indicate that violent crime rates tended to decrease as metropolitan areas experienced gains in their concentration of immigrants. This inverse relationship is especially robust for the offense of robbery. Overall, our results support the hypothesis that the broad reductions in violent crime during recent years are partially attributable ...

Canada is showing up in U.S. news media reports more than usual these days, and the stories suggest that a crime wave is underway. How can this be happening in sleepy, quiet Canada?. First it was the lurid reports of feet and limbs being mailed to political party offices in Ottawa. Police traced them to a sender in Montreal, indentified as Luka Rocco Magnotta, now arrested in Berlin. Magnotta is a photogenic ex-model and sometime adult film star whose biography is perfect for media sensationalism.. Then we heard about a food court shooting at the Eaton Centre mall in Toronto that wounded six and resulted in one death.. Is this a trend? Is Canada no longer the safe place that many Americans perceive it to be?. There are two issues here: the crime rate, and the perception of the crime rate. Crime rates, as captured in statistics, tell us that the level of crime in the United States and Canada is consistent over time. Using the murder rate as a leading indicator of crime-certainly the crime rate ...

How do I tell the social worker I was previously convicted of driving under the influence? Will my criminal history impact the outcome of my home study?
2016 unemployment rate: 4.1% (metro area) 5.3% (state). While in many states, increases in violent crimes are often driven by spikes in crime in the states metropolitan area, this is not the case in Wyoming. Statewide, the violent crime rate increased by 11.4% over the past five years, yet the largest increase among Wyomings metropolitan areas was just 3.1%. While violent crime did not rise by much in Cheyenne, the situation there is far from ideal. For instance, the murder rate in the area increased from 2.2 per 100,000 people in 2011 to 8.2 per 100,000 in 2016. For comparison, the national murder rate is 5.3 per 100,000..

The objective of the Seattle Neighborhoods and Crime Survey (SNCS) was to test multilevel theories of neighborhood social organization and criminal violence. It was funded by the National Science Foundation (SES-0004324), and the National Consortium on Violence Research (SBR-9513040). Using the concept of differential neighborhood organization, the investigators posited that neighborhood crime is a function of informal social control against crime and informal organization in favor of crime. Informal neighborhood control against crime consists of neighborhood attachment, social capital, and collective efficacy. The study tested the hypothesis that individual social ties are explained by a rational choice model, which in turn produces neighborhood social capital that can be used to achieve collective goals. It also tested the hypothesis that neighborhoods rich in social capital had greater collective efficacy, which in turn, helped produce safe neighborhoods. Organization in favor of crime ...

A burglary is essentially trespassing with the intent to commit a crime therein. There are two main types of burglary and both are felonies.. Burglary of a dwelling is the entering of someones residence with the intent to commit a crime, typically theft. This is a felony of the second degree and if convicted, will result in mandatory prison even if there is no prior criminal history.. The second type of burglary is that of a structure or conveyance. This is typically the entering of a business or motor vehicle with the intent to commit a crime. This is a felony of the third degree and carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison or probation and a $5,000 fine.. Burglary cases generally involve a great deal of evidence. In addition to standard police reports there may also be DNA evidence from blood collected from broken windows, fingerprint evidence, crime scene investigation (CSI) reports, and laboratory reports.

Abstract. The population size, population density and rate of urbanization are often crediting to contributing increasing a crime pattern specially in city. Urbanism model stating that the rise in urban crime and social problems is based on three population indicators namely; size, density and heterogeneity. The objective of this paper is to identify crime patterns of the hot spot urban crime location and the factors influencing the crime pattern relationship with population size, population density and rate of urbanization population. This study employed the ArcGIS Pro 2.4 tool such as Emerging Hot Spot Analysis (Space Time) to determine a crime pattern and Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) Regression to determine the factors influencing the crime patterns.

Lincoln Steffens explains in "I Make a Crime Wave: Beating the competition and the politics of crime reporting", how the press is responsible for much of the hype during a crime wave, more so then the rise in crime itself. Journalism is a competitive business where you have to beat your completion to the punch. This sense of urgency creates a flood of crime stories in the papers. Then a mass hysteria blows through the streets and now you have a full blown crime wave. The media can build a crime wave but just its competitive nature ...

The so-called safety valve provision of 18 U.S.C. 3553(f) allows a court to sentence qualified defendants below the statutory mandatory minimum in controlled substance trafficking and possession cases.14 To qualify, a defendant may not have used violence in the course of the offense.15 He must not have played a managerial role in the offense if it involved group participation.16 The offense must not have resulted in a death or serious bodily injury.17 The defendant must make full disclosure of his involvement in the offense, providing the government with all the information and evidence at his disposal.18 Finally, the defendant must have an almost spotless criminal record, that is, not more than 1 criminal history point.19 Criminal history points and categories are a feature of the U.S. Sentencing Commissions Sentencing Guidelines. The Guidelines assign points based on the sentences imposed for prior state and federal convictions. For example, the Guidelines assign 1 point for any past ...

But U.S. Rep. Bill McCollum, a Florida Republican and chairman of the House subcommittee that produced the crime bill, said that "even with these declines, it is still four times more likely that you are going to be raped, robbed, assaulted or murdered than it was in 1960." "I dont think guns are a big factor in this. Good community policing doesnt depend on finding contraband guns but the fact that the cop knows the kids and the gangs," he said. McCollum says credit for the decrease in crime should also be given to Republican-sponsored incentives to build more state prisons and keep violent criminals behind bars longer. Academics and police chiefs cited other factors for the continuing drop in crime: ...
