    • Alaska Justice Forum ; Vol. 5, No. 2 (Summer 1988)

      Lee, Nella; Bureau of Justice Statistics; UAA Justice Center (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1988-06)
      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.

      The Winter 1989 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum presents the first of two articles analyzing Alaska crime trends from 1963 to 1987 based on Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) data and additional data compiled by the Alaska State Troopers, this article analyzes statewide crime trends from 1963 to 1987. The the National Crime Survey questionnaire has added expanded questions which permit analysis of crime victims' perception of drug and alcohol use by violent offenders; protective actions taken by victims and bystanders; and the response of police and other criminal justice authorities to reported crimes. A study of 1984 Alaska felony cases used 1984 Alaska Offender-Based Transaction Statistics (OBTS) to analyze the process of case attrition and charge change between arrest and initial prosecution. January 1989 population figures for Alaska Department of Corrections facilities are presented.
