Women in the Criminal Justice System: Tracking the Journey of Females and Crime provides a rare up-to-date examination of women both as offenders and employees in the criminal justice system. While the crime rate in the United States is currently decreasing, the rate of female incarceration is rising. Female participation in the criminal justice workforce is also rising. However, women on both sides of the system experience special issues. This book presents the current state of females in the system through contributions by expert authors. The book discusses the criminal justice system’s reaction to women, as well as the successes and failures of its responses and current and future consequences. The surge of incarcerated women comes with accusations of sexism, racism, and differential treatment, and female employees face sexual harassment, corruption, and differential pay. It examines the victimization of women through sexual and physical assault, victimization during incarceration, and the need for services such as financial assistance, addiction treatment, and psychological care for issues unique to women. The early chapters outline the history of women in the context of the criminal justice system, and lead into chapters that address specific women’s issues. Each chapter contains discussion questions to broaden understanding of the history and issues relating to women in the system. The chapters also highlight key concepts, significant statistics, and legislative landmarks in criminal justice for women. As a historical analysis and currently informed resource, Women in the Criminal Justice System is a landmark work in its own right. It gives you a firm understanding of past problems that women faced in criminal justice, the present problems concerning women, how progress was made from past to present, and what progress is still needed.

Recent years in North America have seen a rapid development in the area of crime analysis and mapping using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology. In 1996, the US National Institute of Justice (NIJ) established the crime mapping research center (CMRC), to promote research, evaluation, development, and dissemination of GIS technology. The long-term goal is to develop a fully functional Crime Analysis System (CAS) with standardized data collection and reporting mechanisms, tools for spatial and temporal analysis, visualization of data and much more. Among the drawbacks of current crime analysis systems is their lack of tools for spatial analysis. For this reason, spatial analysts should research which current analysis techniques (or variations of such techniques) that have been already successfully applied to other areas (e.g., epidemiology, location-allocation analysis, etc.) can also be employed to the spatial analysis of crime data. This book presents a few of those cases.

The True Story of a devious killer and the average woman who did what the police couldn't do. A terrible crime is made all the more unfathomable when the least likely suspect is accused, and a woman must put aside her grief to aid the police before the chance at justice is lost forever. These are circumstances in which one extraordinary woman finds herself entwined in "Citizen Jane," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie which tells the true story of the lone woman who refused to let a killer escape, even at the risk of her own life. Jane Alexander had it all: A wonderful family, personal and financial success and a deep romance with Tom O'Donnell. A family friend for 25 years prior to their romance, Tom helped Jane cope with the death of her husband, and captivated her wit his charming, unflappable personality. But Jane's picturesque life came crashing down around her the morning she received the news that her beloved aunt had been murdered. Slowly, astonishingly, the evidence began to point to the last person Jane would ever believe capable of such an act: Tom. As she began to comprehend the unfathomable, the depth of his deceit grew, as she realized he had fled with tens of thousands of dollars of her money, forcing her to sell her possessions and move into a dilapidated old house. Their investigation did not go unnoticed, however, and Tom O'Donnell would not allow himself to be caught easily. Seeing as his original plan was to murder Jane as well, he saw no reason not to carry out this act, thus removing the last obstacle to the life he had plotted and murdered to obtain. With everything and almost everyone telling her that her quest was futile, and with a remorseless killer determined to take any action necessary to remain free, time was not on Jane Alexander's side. In fact, she would come to learn that very little was on her side at all.

This book considers the experiences of eighteenth-century women, in the Metropolitan area, as both the victims and perpetrators of a variety of crimes, and as participants, in different forms, in the era's criminal justice system. In doing so, it makes extensive use of primary as well as secondary sources. The book is written so as to be readily accessible to the general reader as well as to academics, and eschews the more arcane language that sometimes surrounds gendered subjects. The eight chapters are broad enough to cover an extensive range of crimes while remaining manageable in size. Vitally, the book considers the impact of what was largely an urban, rather than rural, environment on women's lives, and how this affected their offending and victimisation patterns.
