Abstract: In its continued efforts to spread the work of successful programs and research achievements in criminal justice, the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice (NIJ) developed the National Institute of Justice Journal. In this issue of the Journal, the lead article examines probation practices and challenges in the United States with recommendations to strengthen probation departments so they may effectively execute their justice system role. This article is followed by two additional articles: (1) survey findings on Americans’ views on crime and law enforcement and the importance of public support for justice agencies in achieving goals and addressing challenges and (2) steps in creating a computer-based system designed to put authorship identification on a scientific footing whether handwritten, typed, or found on a computer disk. The Journal concludes with general information on recent publications, final reports from NIJ-sponsored research projects, and NIJ research development and evaluation solicitations.
