Documents in the NCJRS Abstracts Database represent the entire field of law enforcement and criminal justice, except for most legal decisions, opinions, and statutes. The collection has been developed to meet the needs of criminal justice professionals, researchers, policymakers, and technical and legal experts. Subject areas include corrections, courts, crime prevention, criminology, drugs, juveniles, law enforcement, statistics, technology, and victims. Agency produced documents and final grant reports of Office of Justice Programs sponsored research are unique parts of the collection. Many documents are from State and local government or international sources as well as from the book and journal literature. Documents must either be written in English or have an English-language summary.
