Are We Having An iCrime Wave? Plus, Helping Drug-Involved Juveniles
Thinking About Corrections


The Urban Institute has been busy, posting two new reports on diverse topics.  With the new FBI statistics showing violent crime up in 2005 and 2006, the Institute takes an interesting look at how iPods and other portable media devices might be driving the increase, "an iCrime wave."  Separately, an evaluation of the Reclaiming Futures program "that seeks to improve outcomes for drug-involved youth in the juvenile justice system" finds "positive and significant changes" in all ten participating communities.
