THE ADJUDICATION DIVISION WILL SPONSOR RESEARCH ON THE ENTIRE PRETRIAL PROCESS, THE GRAND JURY, PREINDICTMENT PRACTICES AND POLICIES, ANALYSIS OF THE ROLE OF THE BAILBONDSMAN, ASSIGNED COUNSEL, AND POSSIBLY INTRASTATE SENTENCING VARIATION, THE USE OF FINES AS A CRIMINAL SANCTION, THE JURY TRIAL, AND STATE COURT ORGANIZATIONS. SENTENCING AND REHABILITATION ISSUES ARE THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE CORRECTIONS DIVISION, WHILE THE COMMUNITY CRIME PREVENTION DIVISION EMPHASIZES RESEARCH ON VARIOUS ASPECTS OF COMMUNITY CRIME PREVENTION, VIOLENT CRIME, ORGANIZED CRIME, AND WHITE-COLLAR CRIME.
