What's New

  • National Institute of Justice Journal 250 (NIJ) (November 2003)
    Intimate partner homicide--the killing of a spouse, ex-spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend--has declined significantly in the past 25 years. The findings presented in the feature articles examine which women are most at risk for being a murder victim and consider policies that may explain the declines or result in further declines. The "At-A-Glance" section contains snapshots of research on cross-cultural issues in domestic violence, child abuse, gentrification of drug markets, drug enforcement task forces, the effects of social changes on homicide rates, community involvement in law enforcement, crime victim compensation, quality-of-life policing, and racial profiling.

  • Coach A Kid in the Game of Life....Be A Mentor Mentoring is one of the best ways to help kids live healthy, happy lives. For children without positive role models, mentors offer valuable guidance, support, and friendship. In fact, children who meet regularly with a mentor are more likely to stay out of trouble, succeed in school, and achieve their goals. Visit OJJDP’s new website to learn more about mentoring!
