Alaska Justice Forum ; Vol. 6, No. 4 (Winter 1990)Schafer, N. E.; Read, Emily E.; Bureau of Justice Statistics; Copus, Gary D.; Holmes, Caralyn (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1990-01)The Winter 1990 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum examines the criminal activity of Alaska women by analyzing Uniform Crime Reporting arrest data for 1975–1984. Women do not contribute substantially to the overall rate of violent crime in Alaska, but arrests of female offenders, both adult and juvenile, comprise a substantial proportion of all arrests for alcohol-related offenses. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports on adults on federal and state probation and parole in 1988. Analysis of 1988 data on reported crime incidents from seven villages in the North Slope Borough suggests that crime rates for certain offenses may be higher in rural Alaska than in urban Alaska. January 1990 population figures for Alaska Department of Corrections facilities are presented.
