Abstract: THE PROGRAM HELPED STATES DEVELOP OR IMPROVE THEIR OPERATING STANDARDS AND GOALS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, PROSECUTORS, PUBLIC DEFENSE SERVICES, COURTS, AND PRISONS. THIS SOURCEBOOK PRESENTS ADVICE BY THE NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL ON THE PROPER STANDARDS AND GOALS FOR STATES, STANDARDS AND GOALS ACCEPTED BY THE 41 STATES REPORTING IN THE PROGRAM EVALUATION, AND STATES' PRESENT PRACTICES.
