This volume of the Justice Policy Journal addresses a variety of very important criminal and juvenile justice topics. This volume includes information on the allocation of the California drug war costs; critical challenges in addressing the mental health needs of juvenile offenders; smarter policing and stepped-up imprisonment as the primary causes of falling crime rates in New York City; moral panic and sex offenders; and lastly parole violators and prison crowding in Hawaii.
