Description

This panel will cover a variety of criminal justice issues. One journalist will discuss the "veil of secrecy" of juvenile justice systems and how we can obtain data showing how youths are being treated there; another will talk about how comparing crime stats across jurisdictions may have less to do with actual crime and more to do with state laws, police attitudes, public records laws and community sensibilities. A state official will tell us about a handful of key resources for accessing statistics on crime and the justice system's response, highlighting the value of available data and the challenges public officials face in answering key questions. Finally, we'll learn about the third edition of a book IRE is publishing now on "Understanding Crime Statistics."
