Excerpt
Excerpt: The past year has seen crime rates falling in communities all across America. But few of us in the $criminal justice business think our job is done. And from the federal level, Fiscal Year 1997 saw two major events that helped us focus our sights on the appropriate federal role in crime control as we approach the year 2000. In February 1997, we released a report the University of Maryland prepared in response to a Congressional mandate to provide an independent, comprehensive, and scientific evaluation of the $diverse group of programs funded by the Department of Justice to assist state and local law enforcement and communities in preventing crime. And last summer, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the 1967 President?s Crime Commission Report, The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society. We brought together former commissioners and their staff to talk with criminal and juvenile justice practitioners, researchers, and experts working today to reflect on the progress we have made during the past 30 years and to consider what that history can teach us as we move forward toward the 21st century.
