Annotation: Five articles in this issue reflect the concepts of community, cooperation, and connections as important foci of law enforcement agencies, as data analysis evolves into one of the most valuable tools for communication and information sharing.
Abstract: One article provides an overview of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership, an advanced information system with integrated and periodically updated information on conditions in 13 neighborhoods. Another article describes the development and use of a computer system that readily shows the activity of multiple Federal agencies in any given area. The U.S. Attorney's Office in which this system is operating uses this one-stop information source to look beyond individual cases to solve problems that it and other agencies are addressing. Another article summarizes the proceedings and recommendations of the Workshop on Building Data Systems and Responding to Violence Against Women, which focused on ways to standardize disparate data. Recommendations deal with defining violence, measuring the number of victims, and ensuring victim's confidentiality and safety. A fourth article explores the relatively new concept of community justice, as it discusses the roles and relationships of the victim, offender, and community, as well as the role of the justice system. An article on the Methamphetamine Interagency Task Force discusses the growing concern about meth use in communities across the United States. For individual articles, see NCJ-184444-48
