  Annotation: This issue contains articles that summarize recent reports on projects funded by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), with a cover story on evaluations of gender-appropriate programs that help released female inmates reintegrate into society and avoid reoffending.
Abstract: The featured evaluated reentry programs for women are operating in Delaware, California, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. They include prison-based and community-based substance abuse treatment programs for women, cognitive-behavioral therapy for women dealing with both substance abuse and posttraumatic stress disorder, and programs of discharge planning. Another article profiles the Voice Response Translator, which can be programmed and used by police officers in the field to translate officer's routine statements and commands in English to audio statements in the language of the subject being addressed. A third article presents the findings of interviews with telemarketing-fraud offenders that focused on their organization and routine, personal characteristics, and ways to counter their schemes. Other summarized studies addressed the impact of various Federal statutes that have targeted State and local issues such as truth in sentencing under the Federal Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act and services for female victims of violence under the Federal Violence Against Women Act. Other articles report on studies and programs concerned with special technologies for law enforcement and corrections, the nature and extent of modern-day slavery in the United States, and factors in the decline of the rate of intimate-partner homicides in the United States over the 13 years between 1987 and 2000.
