Abstract: The first panel session covered community policing, drug testing, intensive supervision programs, innovative prosecution strategies, drug treatment, interventions for high-risk youths and their families, crime prevention programs, gang violence, rural law enforcement efforts, and drug law enforcement. The second panel session focused on drug market analysis, problem-oriented policing, school- based crime prevention programs, boot camps, court responses to drug cases, law enforcement technologies, drug courts, prison crowding, anticrime public awareness programs, drug testing, links between public health and criminal justice sectors, and environmental crime. The third and final panel session considered Weed and Seed programs, responses to gangs, family violence, drug testing, violent crime, the management of specific populations in the correctional setting, and criminalistics. Conference workshops explored the effectiveness of criminal justice programs, the Americans With Disabilities Act, drug task forces, case management, boot camps, and program evaluation techniques.
