Annotation: Under the 2000 Missouri Statewide Drug and Violent Crime Strategy, existing programs that are effectively addressing community crime issues will be continued, and new programs designed to address problems identified through the strategic planning process will be implemented.
Abstract: The 2000 strategy to counter drug and violent crimes is the first year of a multi-year strategic plan. Based on information currently available, no program priority changes are expected for the duration of the 3-year plan. The priorities remain the same as those established and approved in fiscal year 1997. This is the first strategic plan to use statistical information obtained from various reporting entities throughout the State. This information aids not only in identifying drug and crime trends, but also assists in the evaluation of programs supported under the strategy. The areas and programs funded under the strategy are Multijurisdictional Drug Task Forces; community-oriented policing/crime prevention; intensive supervision, probation, and parole; criminal records improvement; Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE); the Crime Laboratory Upgrade Program; the Missouri State Highway Patrol--Narcotics Control Assistance Program data analysis; court delay reduction; career criminal prosecution; the administration of the Missouri Department of Public Safety; disruption of illicit commerce in stolen goods; innovative programs; and the Anti-Terrorism Training and Equipment Procurement Program. This report provides an update on trends in drug and violent crimes in the State and outlines approved "purpose areas." The latter are to develop evaluation criteria to measure the success of each program; to provide DARE to elementary, middle, and high school students; to implement or continue multijurisdiction task force programs; to train police officers in the safe clean up of clandestine methamphetamine labs; to expand drug interdiction efforts; to promote drug and violent crime prosecution; to supplement forfeiture efforts; to expand COPS/crime prevention; to reduce court backlogs; to reduce crime laboratory backlogs; to expand the State's alternative to incarceration options for adults and juveniles; to continue adult and juvenile treatment and education programs; and to continue criminal records improvement programs.
