Recent Research from Public Safety Canada

The most recent issue of the Weekly Checklist of Canadian Government Publications refers to a few research briefs produced by Public Safety Canada:
  • Risk and Mentally Disordered Offenders: "The increasing numbers of mentally disordered offenders present a number of challenges for correctional staff. Decisions on security and supervision levels need to be made as well as placements into the appropriate treatment programs. Many of these decisions are facilitated with the administration of structured risk assessment instruments (...) However, most risk assessment instruments used by correctional agencies were developed on non-mentally disordered, general offenders. Therefore, it is uncertain as to how appropriate these assessment instruments and the risk factors measured by the instruments are for mentally disordered offenders."
  • Organized Crime Research Highlights: this publication includes summaries on research relating to Internet-facilitated counterfeit crime; violence and gang territories; measuring police impact on organized crime; locating meth labs; strategic intelligence and transnational organized crime; sizing drug markets using sewage.
The Weekly Checklist includes a listing of titles made available by the Parliament of Canada, federal departments, and Statistics Canada to the Depository Services Program for distribution to a network of Depository Libraries in Canada and abroad.
