Excerpt
Introduction: 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.

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.
