This publication looks at forcasted population growth and recent crime trends and makes projections at to what North Carolina's crime will look like in the year 2010. The following trends are evaluated: North Carlina's population, reported index crime, index crime arrest rates, reported index crime in rural areas, DWI arrests, drug arrests, the market economy of drugs, juvenile index crime arrests, children under DSS supervision, child abuse cases, and social, economic crime trends.
This report briefly delineates a profile of crime and justice trends in North Carolina during the past decade. The state's reported crime rates are contrasted with both the south's and the nation's reported crime rates. Trend data is presented with an emphasis on highlighting the activities of the state's criminal justice system and its major components. Arrest rates, court case filing rates, and incarceration trends are discussed in an effort to illuminate the quantitative aspects of crime in North Carolina. Juvenile arrest and court data is also discussed in an effort to provide criminal justice practitioners and policy makers with a general overview of how the current level of crime has specifically affected the juvenile justice system.
The Robeson County Juvenile Task Force, RCJTF, is a community effort to provide juvenile intervention before court action becomes necessary. The Task Force is a group of law enforcement juvenile specialists guided by an executive board, coordinated via the Sheriff's Department, and implemented by local police departments. The purpose of the Task Force is to provide a community wide juvenile intervention strategy that focuses on preventing disruptive juvenile behavior in the community and enabling schools to emphasize their educational mission.

This report briefly examines the recent history of juvenile violent crime in North Carolina and forcasts near term juvenile crime trends. The actual number of juvenile arrests from 1981 to 1994 are presented in order to see where we have been. Projections derived from these arrest statistics are offered in an attempt to see where we are heading, and to detect the extent to which this predicted national "time bomb" will explode here in North Carolina.
The purpose of this report is to examine the "forgotten," yet still most prevalent, category of criminal offenses; i.e., property crime. Specifically, this paper will present an examination of trends in burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft activities from 1984 to 1994. Emphasis is directed toward analyzing the frequency, prevalence, and incidence patterns for these
offenses; and how these patterns have been affected by, and interacted with, the dramatic increase in both drug offenses and violent crime that occurred in North Carolina over the past 10 years.
The purpose of this publication is to provide recent North Carolina crime trends, show the positive and effective programs implemented across the state that have been funded by the Commission through federal block grant and competitive funds, and show how these programs have benefited the citizens of North Carolina over the last four years.
