The Growth of Incarceration in the United States
I came across this significant study of the incarceration boom starting int he 1980s. Large document (444 pages) but a very complete study and a good reference. Probably not something most law enforcement would find that interesting. I posted it here primarily for my own reference convenience.
The number of homicides in big U.S. cities increased by 10.8 percent between 2015 and 2016. These increases were much larger than was typical of yearly homicide fluctuations over the past several decades.
A new NIJ-funded paper considers two explanations of the homicide rise as guides for future research: (1) expansion in illicit drug markets brought about by the heroin and synthetic opioid epidemic and (2) widely referenced “Ferguson effects” resulting in de-policing, compromised police legitimacy, or both.
Read the report to learn more about these hypotheses and recommendations for future research into this issue.

FAA webinar series on UAS and public safety
See FAA UAS information at this link.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is running a series of free monthly
webinars for public safety entities on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS, or “drones”) now through at least April 2018. These webinars are for any agency considering starting a UAS program as well as those looking for more information on enforcing UAS regulations.
The FAA is holding the webinars on the 3rd Wednesday
of each month at 2 p.m. Eastern. The presentations will focus on UAS topics of interest to public safety agencies and include hot topics, operational and enforcement considerations, and a question-and-answer period.
Interested attendees need to register ahead of time as space is ample, but limited.
