  SAC Spotlight: Nevada

Recent Publications

One of the projects maintained by the Nevada SAC is the Research in Brief program. Research in Brief reports provide narratives and statistical summaries of independent research projects on various criminal justice system practices. They cover many aspects of the justice system, including trends in crime and arrests, police practices, and adjudication and sentencing, as well as special topics that may be of interest to Nevadans, like the impact of foreclosures on neighborhood crime, and perceptions of disorder in two tourist locations.

Research in Brief reports are modeled after the Bureau of Justice Statistics' Special Reports and Bulletins. They provide UNLV students and other SAC-affiliated professors and researchers with opportunities to publish policy-relevant reports of interest to the general public, local officials, community organizations, and media outlets.

The following is a list of reports and bulletins published as part of the Research in Brief program; they can be found on the Nevada SAC website.
