Annotation: This report describes the fiscal year 1997 work of the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs (OJP), whose mission is to provide "Federal leadership in developing the Nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist crime victims."
Abstract: The first chapter provides an overview of OJP's work through its various bureaus, which encompass the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the National Institute of Justice, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and the Office for Victims of Crime. Other OJP offices profiled in this first chapter are the Corrections Program Office, the Drug Courts Program Office, the Violence Against Women Grants Office, the Violence Against Women Office, the American Indian and Alaskan Native Desk, and the Executive Office for Weed and Seed. The overview of the 1997 OJP budget reports an expenditure of nearly $2.7 billion. A breakdown of these expenditures is provided. The second chapter reports on OJP's research program and its dissemination of research and evaluation findings. A chapter on "Enhancing Public Safety" profiles OJP efforts in this area. OJP's public-safety efforts have focused on community policing, the link between guns and crime, improvement in criminal history records, funding local law enforcement block grants, police occupational stress, multijurisdictional crime, domestic terrorism, white-collar crime, and police training in locating missing children. Other chapters of this report focus on OJP's efforts in empowering communities, preventing violence against women, breaking the cycle of drug use and crime, encouraging innovation in corrections, responding to youth violence, and assisting crime victims. 12 listings for more information
