Annotation: This report summarizes the activities and accomplishments of State and local criminal justice agency projects funded by the Utah Council on Criminal Justice Administration during 1975-76.
Abstract: In all, 27 projects in the following 9 categories are described and evaluated: information systems, police, special law enforcement units, corrections, courts, community crime prevention, youth bureaus, reducing juvenile crime, and planning. Of all the objectives listed in the 27 evaluated projects, approximately two-thirds were achieved; 20 projects were recommended for refunding. In the area of information systems, the Law Enforcement Information System and the Utah Criminal Justice Information System are described and favorably rated. Police projects -- covering with juvenile and inservice training, records and communication, physical evidence collection, and the Murray printer dispatch system -- resulted in increased efficiency and competence. Five specialized law enforcement units are evaluated; the Specialized Task Force on the Investigation and Prevention of Burglaries and Larcenies, felony officer programs in Sevier and Millard counties, the Iron County Sheriff Alcoholism and Drug Program, and the South Ogden Felony Task Force. Corrections projects include the Utah State Prison Diagnostic Unit, two neighborhood probation units, and the long term corrections program development. Courts projects, which generally were found to be effective, deal with research clerks for district courts, the Sixth Judicial District Court Coordinator, and the Brigham City full-time prosecutor and police legal advisor. Crime prevention and antishoplifting projects form the community crime prevention section. Both county and three city youth bureaus are favorably evaluated, as are three special projects aimed at reducing juvenile crime. Finally, the Utah League of Cities and Towns Assistance to Regional Law Enforcement Planning Programs is described.
