Almanac of Policy Issues: Criminal Justice #criminal #justice #policies #list, #public #policy

Criminal Justice

Crime in the United States has declined substantially in recent years. Homicide, robbery, rape, and assault have all dropped sharply since highs in the early 1990s. Substance abuse has declined less sharply, however, and drug-related arrests have actually increased steadily, reaching record highs over the past few years. The number of people under some form of correctional supervision, meanwhile, has also continued to reach new highs. In 1996, over 5.5 million Americans (or about 2 percent) were in prison, jail, on probation or parole.

While criminologists (and, indeed, most Americans) agree that more needs to be done to lower the national crime rate, there are sharp differences over how this should be accomplished. Some believe that tougher enforcement policies should be pursued, including increased spending on law enforcement and prison facilities, longer sentences for offenders, and stepped up use of the death penalty for the worst crimes. Others argue that more money needs to be spent on prevention, including social services and education, to provide hope and opportunity for potential offenders.

This section examines all of these issue in depth.

Shaping Employees for The Future: Creating Value For Organisations

The workforce of tomorrow will be dramatically different from the workforce of today and yesterday. New trends are influencing the future of work. This will result in us working very differently in the future as compared to the past. In the past, rules were set and passed down to employees. In the future, the employee will drive how work gets done. Ironically, we are moving into an environment where it is no longer about employees needing the organisation, it is becoming more of the organisation needing the talent
