Abstract: THE CRIME ANALYSES DISCLOSE THAT BURGLARY, RAPE, ROBBERY, AGGRAVATED ASSAULT, HOMICIDE, LARCENY AND AUTO THEFT, IN THIS ORDER OF SEVERITY, ARE DENVER'S GREATEST CRIME PROBLEMS. CAUSAL AND SYSTEM SPECIFIC PROBLEM ANALYSIS FOR EACH OF THESE CRIME TYPES IS PRESENTED AND ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO FACTORS SUCH AS FAILURE TO REPORT CRIME, PLEA BARGAINING AND POSTFILING NEGOTIATION, EVIDENCE COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS, AND PERSONNEL RESOURCE ALLOCATION BY AGENCY. A SERIES OF SYSTEM OBJECTIVES WERE ADOPTED AND INTEGRATED WITH SPECIFIC PROGRAM AREAS WHERE IT WAS DETERMINED THAT DIRECTED ACTIVITY WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO OBJECTIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT. FUNCTIONAL CATEGORIES THAT WERE DESIGNED TO FACILITATE PROGRAM AREAS AND PROBLEM RESOLUTION PROJECTS ARE CRIME PREVENTION (COMMUNITY), LAW ENFORCEMENT (DETECTION AND APPREHENSION), PRETRIAL PROCESS, TRIAL PROCESS, CORRECTIONAL PROCESS (ADULT), VICTIM-WITNESS SUPPORT, CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTIVITY, AND JUVENILE JUSTICE. THE PROGRAM-AREA DESCRIPTIONS, OBJECTIVES, IMPLEMENTATION PLANS, TABLES, AND GRANT DATA ARE PROVIDED. INFORMATION IS ALSO PRESENTED ON FUNDING REQUESTS AND PROGRAM PRIORITIES. SEE NCJ-50890 FOR VOLUME 1.
