  Annotation: This is the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ's) annual report on research, development and evaluation for fiscal year 1998, pursuant to the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act (as amended) and the 1988 Anti-Drug Abuse Act.
  Abstract: NIJ's mandate is the same today as it was in 1968, i.e., to marry science to criminal justice problem solving and policy development. Although the mandate remains the same, NIJ's portfolio of research, evaluation, and technology has broadened considerably. It now encompasses more than discrete studies of police, courts, drugs, and corrections. It also focuses on crime in its social context, crime and its relation to public health issues, crime policy and the use of data, crime prevention through technology, and crime analysis through geocoding and geographic analysis. It takes into consideration community action, active partnerships, multiple scientific disciplines, and many technological approaches. This report provides information on organization and financial data as well as growth in funding and collaborative activities since 1994. An overview of the year encompasses basic research, applied research, technology development, the testing of new ideas and technology, and the sharing of knowledge. A section on "Selected Highlights" focuses on NIJ's activities in making communities safer, taking steps to prevent crime, finding new ways of working together, and exploring issues of special concern. Appended listing of NIJ awards made in fiscal year 1998 and a listing of documents published in fiscal year 1998
