Law Enforcement Officers’ Perceptions In Regard To Sex Offenders, Sorn, And Residency Restrictions Laws, Maria Aparcero-Suero 2017 East Tennessee State University

Law Enforcement Officers’ Perceptions In Regard To Sex Offenders, Sorn, And Residency Restrictions Laws, Maria Aparcero-Suero

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to extend current knowledge regarding law enforcement’s perceptions of sex offenders. Law enforcement’s views of sex offenders and the fairness and efficacy of sex offender laws were examined through the utilization of a 60 closed-ended question survey. The survey included questions about sex offender myths, sex offender laws, police officers’ experience in working with sex offenders, specialized training, and demographics. The sample consisted of 74 sworn police officers from a Southeastern state. The results showed that, despite having a mostly empirical based view of sex offenders, sworn police officers were likely to ...


Exploring The Social Trend Of Household Computer Ownership In Affecting The United States 1990'S Crime Drop, Alison Kimberley Bogar 2017 East Tennessee State University

Exploring The Social Trend Of Household Computer Ownership In Affecting The United States 1990'S Crime Drop, Alison Kimberley Bogar

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

During the 1990’s the world witnessed a crime drop throughout all categories of crime. Many researchers have sought to seek an explanation for this drop; however, there has been a lack of concrete findings to fully explain this phenomenon. The purpose of this study is to explore a further reasoning as to why this drop occurred, specifically throughout the United States. An unexplored factor to explain this phenomenon is the increase of household computer ownership during the 1990’s. During this decade, household computers and the internet became prevalent throughout the nation. This study utilized secondary data from the ...


Environmental Factors And School Disorder: The Role Of Urbanicty, Brandon S. Coffey 2017 East Tennessee State University

Environmental Factors And School Disorder: The Role Of Urbanicty, Brandon S. Coffey

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study is to explore the differential impact of various environmental and organizational factors on levels of school misconduct. Although we have a general understanding of this relationship, little effort has been made to determine whether the effects are influenced by urbanicity. The current study utilizes data from the 2007-2008 School Survey on Crime and Safety to address this gap in the literature by utilizing a series of negative binomial regression models that seek to determine differences between predictive factors in urban and rural settings. Results indicate that disorganization has a similar effect within urban and rural ...

Does Race Impact Judicial Outcomes?, Kameron L. Griffin 2017 Georgia College and State University

Does Race Impact Judicial Outcomes?, Kameron L. Griffin

Georgia College Student Research Events

Over the past decade, many arguments over racial disparity have become the center of worldwide media attention. While many studies have gathered and revealed a consensus of the existence of racial inequality in mass incarceration rates and the criminal justice system, few have investigated the role that race plays in determining severity of punishment. Utilizing Waves 1, 3 and 4 of the Add-Health cross-sectional data set, this paper will estimate and examine the effect being in a minority has on judicial decisions in criminal court. By using traditional OLS procedure in STATA, I estimated the impact that race has on ...


Eliminating Circuit-Split Disparities In Federal Sentencing Under The Post-Booker Guidelines, Elliot Edwards 2017 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Eliminating Circuit-Split Disparities In Federal Sentencing Under The Post-Booker Guidelines, Elliot Edwards

Indiana Law Journal

This Note will explore the rarely discussed consequences that result when courts of appeals freely interpret the Sentencing Guidelines. This Note will not address appellate review of sentences in general, nor will it discuss disparities caused by trial courts. Instead, the discussion below will address a very specific situation, namely when a court of appeals vacates a sentence because, in its estimation, the trial court misapplied the Guidelines. Part I will relate the history of the recent sentencing re-form movement in America, noting particularly which bodies have the authority to decide sentencing policy. Part II will then analyze the interpretive ...


Criminal Justice Internships: An Assessment Of The Benefits And Risks, Dave Murphy, Steve Gibbons 2017 Western Oregon University

Criminal Justice Internships: An Assessment Of The Benefits And Risks, Dave Murphy, Steve Gibbons

Faculty Research Publications (All Departments)

Many Criminal Justice programs actively encourage and facilitate student participation in internships and other types of field learning activities. Internships are often highly individualized arrangements between the student and a criminal justice (or related) agency, creating the potential for a wide range of outcomes. While evidence indicates that successful internships offer students a host of potential benefits, relatively little is known about the nature of the “average” or “typical” internship as characterized by students and their host agency supervisors. Through an analysis of data collected via self-administered surveys completed by participants in WOU’s CJ practicum program, this study aims ...


Raising An Infant In A Jumpsuit: Prison Nurseries, Kelsey Marie Arnouse 2017 Thompson Rivers University

Raising An Infant In A Jumpsuit: Prison Nurseries, Kelsey Marie Arnouse

Proceedings of the Annual Thompson Rivers University Undergraduate Research and Innovation Conference

Raising an Infant in a Jumpsuit: Canada’s need for a more contemporary approach to prison nurseries The purpose of my paper, “Raising an infant in a jumpsuit: Prison Nurseries,” is to address the complex problem of pregnant incarcerated women and what to do with their newborns. The rate of women imprisoned has risen substantially in recent decades, and with the increase has arisen the question: What to do when a woman gives birth while incarcerated? Although Canadian research would have been optimal for this paper, I found a huge gap in that very little research had been done on ...


Feminism And The Carceral State: Gender-Responsive Justice, Community Accountability, And The Epistemology Of Antiviolence, Brady T. Heiner, Sarah K. Tyson 2017 California State University, Fullerton

Feminism And The Carceral State: Gender-Responsive Justice, Community Accountability, And The Epistemology Of Antiviolence, Brady T. Heiner, Sarah K. Tyson

Feminist Philosophy Quarterly

Building on recent feminist scholarship on the complicity of feminist antiviolence movements in the build-up of mass incarceration, this essay analyzes the epistemic occupation of feminist antiviolence work by carceral logic, taking the Gender-Responsive Justice and Community Accountability movements as countervailing examples. Both strategies claim to be a feminist response to violence. Gender-Responsive Justice arises from feminist criminology and has genealogical roots in the American prison reformatory movement. Community Accountability stems from grassroots intersectional and decolonial feminisms that are fundamentally at odds with the professionalization and state-centrism of the mainstream antiviolence movement. We argue that Gender-Responsive Justice is a form ...
