Annotation: The director of the National Institute of Justice discusses two essential elements in the reduction of violent crime: research and development and the effective use of resources.
Abstract: The director asserts that society must be willing to invest in research and development to control crime. Special studies are being conducted on developing a State homicide investigative team, on social and environmental factors in homicide, on DNA analysis, and on murders committed during robberies and sexual homicides. International data bases are also necessary to expose worldwide criminal operations. An example of law enforcement agency collaboration is the VI-CAP diagnostic center for solving violent crimes. The center was funded by NIJ, is run by the FBI, and is used by the FBI and local law enforcement agencies to pool information and analytic and investigative resources. The NIJ-produced Multi-Agency Investigative Team Manual also encourages multi-agency involvement.
