Abstract: The feature article reports on how OJP is helping law enforcement agencies adjust to “crime in the 21st century,” which has become a global enterprise, with networks of criminal organizations and terrorists using technology to increase the secrecy and efficiency of their planning and operations. This has led to a convergence of public safety and national security priorities. Consequently, law enforcement agencies will increasingly be involved in making connections between local events and activities that occur outside their jurisdictions. The OJP is assisting law enforcement agencies in adjusting to this new reality by promoting intelligence-led policing. Intelligence-led policing involves identifying patterns of behavior through the analysis of disparate information. It is oriented toward prevention and the sharing of information among local, State, and Federal law enforcement agencies. Other news reported pertains to the U.S. Justice Department’s Internet safety campaign, which alerts parents to dangers their children face in using the Internet and targets potential predators. Other news reported pertains to a new name and Web address for the National Sex Offender Public Registry and communications across State and county lines. Resources described pertain to countering girls’ delinquency and the sexual exploitation of children, statistics on sexually assaulted and missing children, and links between housing foreclosures and crime. Resource events described include the National Victim Assistance Academy, the 2009 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, and the NIJ 2009 Conference.
