Alaska Justice Forum ; Vol. 5, No. 2 (Summer 1988)The Summer 1988 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum features an article presenting 1985-1986 crime statistics for eight predominately Yup'ik villages in the Bethel area of Alaska, with preliminary analysis indicating that crime rates in rural Alaska may higher than statewide or national averages — although data from such a small sample should be viewed with caution. A Bureau of Justice Statistics study which examined data from the United Nations, the International Police Organization (Interpol), and the World Health Organization on crime rates internationally finds that violent crime and property crime appear to be higher in the United States than in other countries for which data is available. July 1988 population figures for Alaska Department of Corrections facilities are presented.
Alaska Justice Forum ; Vol. 7, No. 4 (Winter 1991)The Winter 1991 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum discusses the first year of work by the Alaska Sentencing Commission, which was created by an act of the Alaska Legislature to evaluate the effect of sentencing laws and practices on Alaska's criminal justice system and to recommend improvements in criminal sentencing practices. The Bureau of Justice Statistics presents a detailed examination of data on rape from the National Crime Survey for 1973 to 1987. Crime statistics for sixteen predominately Yup'ik villages in the Bethel area of Alaska for 1983–1987 are presented.
