Annotation: Talks focus on the National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice's (NILECJ's) history and purpose and on the direction of California's urban anticrime strategy, with attention to the State's method of implementing crime prevention programs, such as the California Career Criminal Apprehension Program (CCAP).
Abstract: NILECJ is involved in basic and applied research and dissemination of research results to the criminal justice community. Most research is done through grants and contracts. California's urban strategy focuses resources on 16 high priority programs designed to improve the State's criminal justice system. The urban strategy contains a specific anticrime element which has two major programs: (1) a Citizen Involvement in Crime Prevention Program and (2) a Career Criminal Apprehension Program involving both prosecution and apprehension facets. Other States interested in implementing an urban strategy should start with the existing LEAA apparatus and focus funds on a limited number of high priority programs. In California, State legislators have been receptive to requests from the criminal justice community when it presents priority programs which have shown positive results (a decrease in the crime rate) and when it demonstrates a sharply focused, well-conceived approach. Thus, the CCAP has been strongly supported and continues to yield positive results. Audience comments and questions conclude the presentation.
