Environment & Organized Crime "EC Environmental law has existed for 25 years. More than 200 directives in the field of environment are today in force. However, there are still many cases of severe non- observance of Community environmental law. These trends of severe non-observance of environmental law show that the sanctions currently established by the Member States are not sufficient to achieve full compliance with Community law."

National Victim Center "In 1996, there were 36.8 million victimizations of persons age 12 or older and living in the United States. (Ringel, Criminal Victimization 1996, Bureau of Justice Statistics, 1997)." This little studied area is brought to focus in this site which stands up for the rights of victims.
 
Organized Crime "There is an urgent need for research, policy development, law reform and education in the field of organized crime and corruption. Domestic challenges have been enhanced by globalization, which generates new opportunities but also creates new vulnerability to organized crime and corruption. Since organized criminals seek out countries known to have less effective regulatory and enforcement systems, any jurisdiction that does not have adequate defenses is at risk and may cause risk to other countries. As perhaps never before, the policies and enforcement capabilities of any one country have direct consequences globally."

Serial Killers "Serial killers tend to be white, heterosexual males in their     twenties and thirties who are sexually dysfunctional and have low self-esteem. Their methodical rampages are  almost always sexual in nature. Their killings are usually  part of an elaborate fantasy that builds to a climax at the  moment of their murderous outburst. Serial killers  generally murder strangers with cooling off periods  between each crime. Many enjoy cannibalism, necrophilia  and keep trophy-like body parts as mementos of their  work. Serial killers are sadistic in nature." This is a very disturbing page and I don't recommend it to all.
Sexual Assault Information Page Awareness and prevention material is well presented at this site which includes survivors and crisis pages.
Sheriff Brass' Crime Prevention Unit One can remove the ability to commit a crime by incarcerating, and one can remove the opportunity to commit a crime by target-hardening. If one can determine a noticeable drop in crime either through a noticeable change in UCR (Uniform Crime Reports) percentages, or through crime analysis conducted interdepartmentally, then one can be fairly certain that the crime rate has decreased.
