The issue specifically focuses on recommendations to combat violent crime and strengthen criminal justice; a BJS project to share criminal justice information by States; incident-based crime reporting projects initiated by the BJS; and Operation Weed and Seed, a neighborhood revitalization program that coordinates law enforcement with social services, housing, and community redevelopment programs. Data on criminal justice costs and expenditures indicate Federal spending increased twice as fast as Federal spending for all activities between 1988 and 1990. The issue also looks at Federal offenders sentenced to prison, persons jailed for drunk driving, inmate drug use, households experiencing crime, and the Attorney General's Criminal History Record Improvement Program. Statistics on drug- related offenses are presented, and BJS studies on law enforcement, corrections, Federal case processing, and privacy and security are noted. Tables and figures are also included in the update.
