National Criminal Justice Reference Service

The National Criminal Justice Reference Service contains information for "anyone interested in crime, victim assistance, and public safety." Given the outstanding collection of criminal and juvenile justice data held in the NCJRS Abstracts Database, this site should be one of the first tools used to answer criminal justice queries. The NCJRS Abstracts Database holds over 185,000 entries from within the U.S. and around the world. The Question and Answers link on the site allows the user to formulate a question and provides quick and helpful answers. Sponsored by several Federal organizations, this site holds the most up-to-date information in the field of criminal justice and corrections.
