New and Distinguished Books in Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice The Crime Numbers Game Management by Manipulation John A. Eterno Molloy College

Eli B. Silverman John Jay College of Criminal Justice

In the mid-1990s, the NYPD created a performance management strategy known as Compstat. It consisted of computerized data, crime analysis, and advanced crime mapping coupled with middle management accountability and crime strategy meetings with high-ranking decision makers. While initially credited with a dramatic reduction in crime, questions quickly arose as to the reliability of the data. The Crime Numbers Game: Management by Manipulation brings together the work of two criminologists—one a former NYPD captain—who present the first in-depth empirical analysis of this management system—exposing the truth about crime statistics manipulation in the NYPD and the repercussions suffered by crime victims and those who blew the whistle on this corrupt practice.

Providing insider insight into a system shrouded in secrecy, this volume: • Documents and analyzes a wide array of data that definitively demonstrates the range of manipulation reflected in official New York City crime statistics • Explores how the consequences of unreliable crime statistics ripple throughout police organizations, affecting police, citizens, and victims • Documents the widening spell of police performance management throughout the world • Reviews current NYPD leadership approaches and offers alternatives • Analyzes the synchronicity of the media’s and the NYPD’s responses to the authors’ findings • Explores the implications of various theoretical approaches to Compstat • Offers a new approach based on organizational transparency Presenting a story of police reform gone astray, this book stunningly demonstrates how integrity succumbed to a short-term numbers game, casting a cloud on the department from which we can only hope it will emerge.

Criminal Major Case Management Persons of Interest Priority Assessment Tool (POIPAT) Larry Wilson Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

In high-profile investigations, when the suspect pool is very large, resources are unduly strained unless the pool can be narrowed down to the most likely offenders. The Persons of Interest Priority Assessment Tool (POIPAT) provides an objective and consistent means of establishing a priority ranking of suspects or persons of interest in any investigation. Created and used correctly, the tool can determine if any suspect/POI should be considered a high, medium, or low investigative priority, saving time and resources and potentially saving additional victims. Criminal Major Case Management: Persons of Interest Priority Assessment Tool (POIPAT) describes how to set up a POIPAT system for any investigation where there are numerous POIs and limited resources. Using the unsolved Jack the Ripper mystery as a sample case study, it walks readers through the steps of creating and using the POIPAT system. The book provides an overview of offender profiling and the basic considerations for developing elements for a POIPAT. It explains the Element Weighting Chart (EWC) and discusses how many points each element should be weighted based on its level of importance. The author describes how to determine what point totals constitute a high, medium, or low priority so that police managers can know how best to direct their resources. He also discusses tracking how POIs are eliminated through an elimination coding system, thereby avoiding potential duplication and allowing investigators to hone in on the person most likely to have committed the crime. Finally, the book uses the POIPAT system to draw conclusions about some of the best-known suspects who were most likely to have been the real Jack the Ripper. Seeing how the technique is used in a real case, investigators will discover how to effectively create unique POIPATs for their own cases. The included CD-ROM contains a template that can be modified for any type of investigation and a number of additional tools and guides. Catalog no.

Effective Expert Witnessing Fifth Edition Practices for the 21st Century Jack V. Matson Matson & Associates, LLC, State College, Pennsylvania, USA

Praise for the Previous Edition:


”Effective Expert Witnessing is a well-conceived and well-written book that organizes the often seemingly chaotic proceedings of litigation into a logical, structured, step-by-step process, one that individuals outside the legal community can readily understand. The numerous suggestions and analyses presented by the authors serve to bridge the gap between scientific expert witnesses and the legal community. The case studies highlight the impact and importance of the interrelationships of the fields of science, health care, and the law. This book is recommended for individuals possessing scientific knowledge and expertise who contemplate undertaking the role of a consulting or testifying expert witness. In addition, physicians who are summoned to testify in a court of law, and attorneys involved in various kinds of medical-legal litigation, will find this book an especially useful reference.” —Journal of Legal Medicine

Since the last edition of Effective Expert Witnessing was published in 2004, many changes have taken place with regard to federal expert witness laws and admissibility. With extensive revisions and three completely new chapters, this timely update on expert witnessing emphasizes changes in the rules of procedures that have further defined the original Daubert guidelines for expert witness testimony.

The Legal Environment and Expert Witnessing The Legal Environment Key Cases and Precedents Affecting Expert Witnessing A Closer Look at the Impact of Daubert The Litigation Process The Pre-Trial Process Preparing for Trial The Courtroom Drama The Art, Business, and Future of Expert Witnessing The Art of Expert Witnessing The Business of Expert Witnessing Appendix Bibliography Index

Highlights in the Fifth Edition include: • A new chapter detailing judicial interventions that impact experts • The effect of Federal Rules on expert reports and communications with attorneys • New data on how juries react to experts and how they actually decide cases • How changes in society need to be reflected in the ways experts operate, i.e. the CSI effect, social media, and the increasingly adversarial nature of the political culture • A new chapter on how to sue an attorney to get paid • Input from a jury consultant • A CD-ROM video on testifying in court

Fourth Edition

From Science to Scene

Susan M. Stejskal

Wichita State University, Kansas, USA

Recover K9 Search and Rescue, Inc., Vicksburg, Michigan, USA

Much has changed in criminal investigation since the previous edition of Criminal Investigation was published in 2004. Along with new technology, heightened focus has been placed on cybercrime, cyber bullying, date rape, and concepts such as virtual world and augmented reality. Long-known for its accessible, student-friendly quality, this volume returns in the fourth edition with its signature style that has made it a favorite among professors and students alike.

Death, Decomposition, and Detector Dogs: From Science to Scene is designed to help police investigators and Human Remains Detection K9 handlers understand the basics of forensic taphonomy (decomposition) and how to most effectively use a human remains detection (HRD) K9 as a locating tool. The book covers basic anatomy and the physiology of canine olfaction along with some of the unique characteristics that allow a dog to work.

Reflecting the new landscape of crime and criminal investigations, all chapters have been reviewed and updated where needed, with significant revisions made to the chapters on law and sex crimes. Additionally, the book includes two new chapters: Property Crime and Cyber Crime. Ancillary materials including a solutions manual and figure slides are available with qualifying course adoption.

Using concise and understandable explanations along with numerous photographs, the book covers the stages of decomposition and how they are affected by the environment; what is currently understood about the chemical profile of odor from human remains; how weather, topography, ground cover and terrain can affect odor dispersion; and different types of mapping and weather data that can be used before and during deployment of the HRD K9.

Contents: Historical Review of Criminal Investigation Current Investigative Practices Legal Issues Sources of Information Interviewing and Interrogation Informants Writing Reports and Note Taking Surveillance and Undercover Operations Crime Scene Investigation The Crime Laboratory Sex Offenses

The final chapter ties it all together by providing case reports about decedents who have been found in different locations in a variety of environmental conditions. By learning how these variables can affect how and what is found, handlers and investigators will be better prepared to meet the challenges of their jobs.

Because there are so many accidental deaths from drowning, water deaths are frequently not investigated as thoroughly as other death scenes. But only proper interpretation of forensic evidence within the context of drowning can establish whether a drowning death is accidental, homicidal, or undetermined. Written to help investigators learn how to establish reliable findings, Case Studies in Drowning Forensics presents 16 actual drowning cases and examines and explains their associated forensic evidence.

Daniel Joseph Torpy Yendon, Victoria, Australia

Dilip K. Das International Police Executive Symposium, New York, USA

The authors give readers a general understanding of forensic evidence and take an interdisciplinary approach, linking evidence not only to the scene, but to other kinds of evidence. The book profiles the Smiley Face Killers, one of the most controversial murder investigations in recent history.

Investigating Missing Children A Guide for Responders Edited by

Donald F. Sprague and Raymond W. Beach Shocking but true, the first 30 minutes of the investigation of a missing child may determine the life or death of that child.

Investigating Missing Children: A Guide for Responders provides solid training in missing children investigative techniques, enabling those investigating these cases to respond confidently with a plan-of-action and offer the best possible chance for a positive outcome. This book provides law enforcement agencies the best and most current information available to guide them through a missing or runaway child dispatch. It is designed to help investigators respond quickly, expeditiously evaluate the situation, conduct an Endangerment Risk Assessment (ERA) of the child, and commence a thorough, organized investigation, starting from the moment police involvement occurs. The guidelines and methodologies presented in this book are based on combinations of personal police experience and statistical evidence from research and studies gathered from thousands of runaway and missing children cases. Details on those studies and their findings are provided in the Appendix.

As gang violence continues to rise across the country and the world, police departments, prosecutors, and community members are seeking new methods to reduce the spread of gang-related criminal activity. Civil gang injunctions have become a growing feature of crime control programs in several states across the nation. Gang Injunctions and Abatement: Using Civil Remedies to Curb Gang-Related Crimes examines the effectiveness of this strategy and explores the accompanying constitutional controversies related to freedom of speech, assembly, and other rights.

Regardless of the type, size, or mission of a criminal justice or law enforcement organization, optimum decision making can be achieved by examining activities and functions from the perspective of traditional business administration. Using profit and nonprofit business models, The Business of Criminal Justice: A Guide for Theory and Practice integrates the two philosophies of traditional management and finance and service-oriented benefit and demonstrates how success in these organizations is dependent on using the proper business model.

Questions raised by this thought-provoking volume include:

Topics discussed in this forward-thinking volume include:

• What are the costs of gang violence to society?

• The basic characteristics of qualitative and quantitative human decisions that affect law enforcement organizations

• Do civil remedies curb violence in the communities where they are implemented? • What factors make a given injunction or abatement more or less effective? • What legal and policy issues stand in the way of gang injunctions and abatement? Providing step-by-step instructions on how to establish a successful injunction and abatement program, the book presents comprehensive research on the theoretical basis for the strategy. It includes a legal and chronological progression of actual cases and their outcomes, describing weaknesses and successes in various programs. Supplying succinct guidelines from lessons learned, the book enables prosecutors, police agencies, and the public to take steps toward eradicating gang activities in their communities. Catalog no.

A Guide to Who Does What

Washington, D.C., USA

”This book will be an essential roadmap for anyone who intends to seriously study American counterterrorist policy.” —Brian Michael Jenkins, Senior Advisor RAND Corporation (From the Foreword)

”I am not aware of anyone who has to date done as thorough a job as Kraft and Marks in cataloging the scores of agencies, programs, and policies that play a role in the U.S. fight against terrorism.” —Congressman Brad Sherman, Lead Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade

U.S. Government Counterterrorism: A Guide to Who Does What is the first readily available, unclassified guide to the many U.S. government agencies, bureau offices, and programs involved in all aspects of countering terrorism domestically and overseas. The authors, veterans of the U.S. government’s counterterrorism efforts, present a rare insider’s view of the counterterrorism effort, addressing such topics as government training initiatives, weapons of mass destruction, interagency coordination, research and development, and the congressional role in policy and budget issues. Individual chapters describe the various agencies, their bureaus, and offices that develop and implement the counterterrorism policies and programs, providing a useful unclassified guide to government officials at all levels as well as students and others interested in how the U.S. counters terrorism. The book also discusses the challenges involved in coordinating the counterterrorism efforts at federal, state, and local levels and explains how key terror events influenced the development of programs, agencies, and counterterrorism legislation. The legislative underpinnings and tools of the U.S. counterterrorism efforts are covered as are the often-debated issues of defining terrorism itself and efforts to counter violent extremism. In addition to outlining the specific agencies and programs, the authors provide unique insights into the broader context of counterterrorism efforts and developments in the last 10-plus years since 9/11 and they raise future considerations given recent landscapealtering global events.

It is imperative that educators, parents, and potential victims be aware of sexual predators, the danger they pose in our society, and the resources available to help prevent this growing epidemic. Written from a police perspective, Sexual Predators Amongst Us examines the problem of sexual predation, how the internet has contributed to its growth, and how we can protect children and the general public from these offenders. The book begins by identifying traits and characteristics associated with sexual predation and explaining how the predator ”grooms” his victims by gaining their trust. Chapters cover a range of topics related to sexual predation, including child abuse, incest, pedophilia in the clergy, sex trafficking, female sex offenders, and child pornography. The author explains how the internet through social networking sites provides ample opportunities for sexual predators to entice their victims. He examines rehabilitation issues, describes legislation that has been passed in response to various tragic cases, and discusses sex offender registration.

Maintaining a user-friendly style, the book follows a consistent format, with each chapter containing: • Quotes from actual victims and predators • Key words associated with the chapter material and their definitions • In My Opinion segments, where experts in the fields of health, psychology, law, government, criminal justice, and academia voice their honest and objective opinions regarding sexual predators • Profiles of male and female sex offenders to help readers identify common traits The book concludes with recommendations to parents for keeping children safe from online predators. Thought-provoking and direct, it is suitable as a university text as well as a reference for police academies, parents, and schools conducting awareness training courses. Catalog no.

International illicit trade in human organs is on the increase, fueled by growing demand and unscrupulous traffickers. In order to truly understand the problem of organ trafficking, an analysis should take into account the various perspectives that come into play in this multifaceted issue. With contributions from international scholars and experts, The International Trafficking of Human Organs: A Multidisciplinary Perspective provides a broad-based exploration of this controversial phenomenon. Divided into four parts, the book examines the issue of human organ trafficking from the perspectives of criminal justice; business and economic; medical, ethical, and philosophical; and theological. The book begins by presenting case studies of the trafficking of body parts occurring in the U.S. and Mexico. It examines the increase in organ harvesting from Chinese prisoners and describes widespread instances of trafficking in Europe.

Lastly, theologians discuss opposing Catholic and Protestant perspectives on the sale of human organs. Each chapter provides discussion questions to provoke vigorous debate and references to facilitate further study.

” … an impressive ensemble of contributions by leading criminologists and criminal justice scholars from around the world. ” —Gorazd Mesko, PhD, Professor of Criminology at the University of Maribor, Slovenia & Visiting Scholar at the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge, UK

Human trafficking is a crime that undermines fundamental human rights and a broader sense of global order.

Edited by three global experts and composed of the work of an esteemed panel of contributors, Human Trafficking: Exploring the International Nature, Concerns, and Complexities examines techniques used to protect and support victims of trafficking as well as strategies for prosecution of offenders.

Topics discussed include: • How data on human trafficking should be collected and analyzed, and how data collection can be improved through proper contextualization • The importance of harmonization and consistency in legal definitions and interpretations within and among regions • The need for increased exchange of information and cooperation between the various actors involved in combating human trafficking, including investigators, law enforcement and criminal justice professionals, and social workers • Problems with victim identification, as well as erroneous assumptions of the scope of victimization • Controversy over linking protection measures with cooperation with authorities Catalog no.
