This report reflects recent discussions and findings of the group, which include identifying several dozen trends, their effects, and more than a dozen proposed responses. The bureau sponsored the work reported here. The report should be of interest to criminal-justice practitioners, developers, funders, and policymakers seeking an assessment of emerging trends and how the criminal-justice community might best take advantage of the resulting opportunities and mitigate the resulting threats.
