Annotation: The final narrative report is presented by the State University of New York at Albany, N.Y., on the three major research areas of diversion projects for juvenile justice system, criminal justice statistics, and research support.
Abstract: The project areas were supported by the School of Criminal Justice from 1971 to 1976 under a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The first research area included NSF sponsorship of several diversion projects designed to upgrade the juvenile justice system in selected upstate New York areas. The Rochester Juvenile Diversion Project tested the effectiveness of a proposed decentralized diversion program by training Monroe County Family Court personnel to collaborate with the Rochester school system in creating more effective coordination among probation officers, teachers, and school counselors in handling problem juveniles. The Monroe County project led to the development of four other probation projects; and the demographic and personal characteristics of delinquent populations in New York were studied from a sample selected from the tri-county area around Albany, N.Y. A second major research project--the establishment of a criminal justice baseline statistics laboratory for New York--resulted in substantial improvements in State criminal justice statistics. The project has also promoted publication of a number of LEAA statistical research reports, and has stimulated analysis of National Crime Panel data. The third major research project uses the research potential of the faculty and advanced graduate studies program of the School of Criminal Justice through financial support of a series of small projects. Significant projects initiated on rape and fencing of stolen property later became important high priority national programs. Two appendices list the students who received stipends for research under the grant and briefly describe all the research reports of the project, including diversion project reports, baseline statistics laboratory project reports, and the special graduate and faculty studies project.
