Examining the Experiences of Women Police Leaders in Illinois | ICJIA Research Hub

Research indicates women are strong assets to police departments, performing similarly to men in arrest decision-making while using less excessive force and becoming involved in fewer lawsuits and payouts. So why do departments struggle to recruit & retain women officers?

Research indicates women are strong assets to police departments, but they may encounter barriers when attempting to enter the male-dominated field of policing. This study examined the experiences of six female police leaders in Illinois to learn about the challenges they faced and to discover how p...

Prior Criminal Justice Involvement of Persons Experiencing Violent Deaths in Illinois | ICJIA Research Hub

In a study of 3,175 adults who suffered a su***de or homicide in Illinois in 2015-2016, we found 77% of homicide victims had been arrested at least once and 31% had served a period of incarceration. This indicates a relationship between criminal history and homicide victimization.

This study examined the connection between criminal arrests and prison admissions and an outcome of violent death defined as either a homicide or su***de. We examined Illinois Violent Death Reporting System (IVDRS) data from death certificates, the coroner/medical examiner, law enforcement, and toxi...

This Macon County group is helping young crime victims. Here's how.

The needs of the victim are always uppermost, more than the needs of prosecutors and courts or anyone else. While it's important to seek justice for crime victims, Macon County HEALS' main goal is to help the victims and put them first."
