The National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS), a federally funded resource offering justice and substance abuse information to support research, policy, and program development, will provide reports authored by the Mercyhurst Civic Institute in its worldwide database that can be accessed online, according to Civic Institute director Art Amann.

Created by the National Institute of Justice in 1972, the NCJRS is one of the most extensive sources of information on criminal justice in the world.

“The inclusion of our reports by the NCJRS demonstrates the high quality of work done by our staff, married to a dire need by the criminal justice community to access timely and reliable information to make sound decisions,” said Amann.

The first two reports authored by the institute to be offered by NCJRS are studies that the institute completed on Juvenile Offenders in Erie County (NCJ # 203153) and the Process Evaluation of the Erie County Criminal Justice Advisory Board (NCJ # 203154).
