Criminal History Records (CHRI) Audit Report

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  In 1997, the Illinois State Police's (ISP) Bureau of Identification (BOI) initiated a project to redesign the criminal history record information system using National Criminal History Identification Program (NCHIP) funds. Testing of the new system began in 1998 and implementation of the system was completed in 1999. At that time, the ISP began using an upgraded Automated Fingerprint Identification System, AFIS-21/EX, in conjunction with a reconfigured computerized criminal history record identification system based on relational database technology. The system allows for the electronic receipt and transfer of demographic and fingerprint arrest data, via livescan technology, from local law enforcement entities to the ISP. The redesigned CCH system also established a direct interface with the FBI's Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), and the National Criminal Information Center (NCIC). When this connection became operational in 2000, Illinois arrest fingerprint and associated demographic information could be forwarded automatically to the FBI without the local agencies submitting an additional manual fingerprint card. Response from the federal system could be expected within hours instead of days or weeks due to its enhanced system. Despite livescan's positive aspects, this audit investigates users' problems with the technology.

An Evaluation of the Cook County Community Based Transitional Services for Female Offenders Program

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  In response to the rising rates of DUI offenses in Cook County, and in an attempt to break the cycle of offending for the women sanctioned to supervision as a result of a DUI offense, the Cook County Department of Social Services implemented the Community Based Transitional Services for Female Offenders (CBTSFO) program in June 2004. The program is designed to provide intensive, individualized services in addition to group substance abuse treatment for female offenders under the supervision of the Cook County Department of Social Services. All women participating in the program are identified as in need of substance abuse treatment, and charged with a DUI offense, which includes the influence of alcohol or major intoxicating compounds. The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority contracted with researchers Southern Illinois University to conduct an independent assessment of the program. The assessment consisted of a two pronged approach that included a process evaluation with specific attention to the adherence of the program to best practices for female offenders, and an outcomes assessment based on existing data that allowed for an examination of the success of the CBTSFO program participants in comparison to other female offenders under supervision for a similar offense. Here, findings of the full report from this evaluation are summarized.

Community Reintegration Trajectories: A Qualitative Comparative Study of Gang-Affiliated and Non-Gang-Affiliated Ex-Offenders

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  This report examines qualitatively the re-entry experiences and trajectories of 39 Chicago-area ex-convicts during the first year of their most recent release from incarceration in a State penal facility. The analysis of interview data is comparative in several ways: First, the authors discern changes in individual participants over time by drawing on data collected in six interviews over a one-year period. Second, they scrutinize the similarities and differences between and among participants as we account for variation in the social and economic processes implicated in the processes attendant to community reintegration. Finally, the data permit a comparison and contrast of gang-involved (or formerly gang-involved) and non-gang involved ex-convicts, the goal being to account for the role of past and/or current gang activity in community reintegration.

Violent Crime and Victim's Gender 2002: An Examination of Differences in correlates of Male and Female Nonfatal Violent Victimization in the State of Illinois, 2002

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  Three research questions are examined in this report. First, do individual- and household-level correlates of nonfatal victimization differ between males and females? Second, do these correlates differ between males and females across several types of nonfatal violence? And third, do individual- and household-level predictors of nonfatal victimization across victim and offender relationships differ for males and females? To address these questions, Illinois Crime Victimization Survey (ICVS) data were used. The purpose of the ICVS is to ascertain the nature and extent of statewide and regional crime victimization in Illinois. Analyses were conducted using the ICVS data provided by the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA). These data were collected using the Illinois Crime Victimization Survey (ICVS) which measured the nature and extent of statewide and regional crime victimization in Illinois during 2002. Recoding and verification tasks were conducted using Statistical Software for the Social Sciences (SPSS), and correlation matrices and logistic regressions were performed using Stata. Analyses offered valuable information about differences in predictors of violence for males and females, including differences by crime type and by victim and offender relationship.

Disproportionate Sentencing of Minority Drug Offenders in Illinois: Report on Changes in Drug Laws 1985-2002

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  Racial disproportionality in prison admissions for drug crimes in Illinois prompted the Authority to commission a more in-depth analysis of the problem. The products of the analysis were slated to appear in four complementary reports examining the disproportionate confinement of minority drug offenders. The first discussed racial disparities in criminal justice processing for drug crimes at the national level and provided the background for the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority-commissioned analysis (Lurigio, 2004). The current report, which is the second in the series, is designed to promote a basic understanding of the structure and content of Illinois' drug laws. It discusses the major components of those laws as originally drafted as well as additions and enhancements to those laws that were enacted from 1985 to 2002.

Disproportionate Incarceration of African Americans for Drug Crimes: The Illinois Perspective

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  In their 2000 study, the Human Rights Watch found that Illinois ranked first in the country with respect to Black-White disparities in prison sentences for drug crimes. The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority awarded a small grant to TASC for a preliminary investigation of racial disproportionality in sentencing for drug crimes. The current report is the third in a series of publications that highlight the disproportionate incarceration of African Americans for drug crimes in Illinois. The purpose of the current report is to describe the results of analyses of statewide data in order to test whether Human Rights Watchs findings on disproportionality were replicable and to consider a few hypotheses thatsuggest explanations for the arrest and imprisonment data and provide a basis for future discussions of remedies for racial sentencing disparities.

Comparison of Official and unofficial sources of criminal history record information

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  In February 2005, the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, in collaboration with the Illinois Integrated Justice Information System initiative, conducted a review of two private providers of conviction records. This review compared six subjects' criminal history information as compiled by two private providers with the subjects' official rap sheets and discovered that the quality of those records varied depending upon their source. In addition to recommending further research in this area, several recommendations are presented to increase the accuracy of privately compiled criminal history records and warn users of the disparity between the official and unofficial compilations.
