- ItemThe 2013 Arizona Crime Victimization Survey(Arizona Statistical Analysis Center, Arizona Criminal Justice Commission, 1/1/2014) Stevenson, P.The Arizona Crime Victimization Survey is based on the National Crime Victimization Survey but modified for a brief telephone interview rather than lengthy face-to-face interviews. Although the primary goal of the survey is to produce estimates of violent, property, identity theft, and hate crime victimization for Arizona, Maricopa County, and Pima County, additional information was collected including whether respondents reported their victimization to the police, and if not, the reasons why they chose not to report their victimization. Additional items in the survey captured residents' perceptions of their local police agencies and their effectiveness at addressing violent crime, drug crime, and burglary. Questions were also included that measured awareness of and access to victim assistance and victim compensation programs. The survey was implemented during February and March of 2013, resulting in 1,878 completed interviews with Arizona residents. The report includes sections on methodology, measures, sample, and findings, and an appendix contains a copy of the survey questionnaire.
- ItemFY 2013 Fill the Gap Report(Arizona Statistical Analysis Center, Arizona Criminal Justice Commission, 1/1/2014)In the 1990s, Arizona's growing population, combined with increased funding for law enforcement, resulted in a larger volume of cases processed through the courts. To keep pace with the increase, Fill the Gap (FTG) legislation was introduced to fund prosecuting attorneys, the indigent defense attorneys, and the courts with general fund appropriations and fine revenues. The purpose of these funds is to reduce case processing times in each county and statewide. In 1999, the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission (ACJC) was assigned the responsibility of distributing state FTG funds to the county attorneys and indigent defense agencies across the state. This report addresses ACJC's statutory mandate to report on the state FTG funds distributed by ACJC for FY2013. The report provides an explanation of the FTG program including statutory authority, the appropriation formulas, and designated responsible parties. The report also presents funding balances, allocations, and expenditures by organization, case processing data and information, and suggestions on how to improve the FTG program.

- ItemOCJS Research Brief, Volume 4, Issue #1: Economic Crime in Columbus Following the Opening of a Casion Volume 4, Issue 1(Ohio Department of Public Safety, Office of Criminal Justice Services, 1/1/2015) Wedd, A.; Gordon, A.; Nicholson, K.This issue of the OCJS Research Brief contains four articles summarizing recent research by the Ohio Statistical Analysis Center. â€œEconomic Crime in Columbus Following the Opening of a Casinoâ€ examined the impact of the newly opened Hollywood Casino on economic crime in Columbus. The research showed no impact from the casino on economic crime, but OCJS will continue to examine the effects of the casino on Columbus crime rates. Overall, this effort represented a successful partnership between OCJS and the Columbus Police Department and demonstrated another way that OCJS can assist law enforcement to help make the state of Ohio safer. The second article, â€œStalking in Ohio â€“ 2013 and Preliminary 2014 Data,â€ demonstrates how Ohio's Incident-Based Reporting System (OIBRS) can be used as a tool to examine stalking in Ohio. The next article, â€œOCJS Sustainability Report,â€ provided the results of study to evaluate both the sustainability of OCJS and the utility of a sustainability measurement tool that has yet to be applied to programs in the criminal justice setting. Results showed that the tool, the Program Sustainability Assessment Tool (PSAT), is useful in a criminal justice context, so OCJS will begin administering the PSAT to its funded programs to help evaluate and strengthen program sustainability. The final article, â€œHomicides in Ohio 2000-2012,â€ reported information on the incidence of homicide in the state from 2000 to 2012 as reported by law enforcement agencies to the FBI in Supplementary Homicide Reports (SHR).
