The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller is the beginning of a “riveting” (Emmy Laybourne) science fiction adventure that challenges the voluntary surrender of liberties for the perception of safety. When the state controls your emotions, how hard will you fight to feel free? In a radiant world of endless summer, the Intercept keeps the peace. Violet Crowley, the sixteen-year-old daughter of New Earth’s Founding Father, has spent her life in comfort and safety. Her days are easy thanks to the Intercept, a crime-prevention device that monitors emotion. But when her long-time crush, Danny Mayhew, gets into a dangerous altercation on Old Earth, Violet launches a secret investigation to find out what he's hiding. An investigation that will lead her to question everything she's ever known about Danny, her father, and the power of the Intercept. Much like the device itself, The Dark Intercept will get under your skin. “The Dark Intercept grabbed me from the first page and shook me until the last.” —Emmy Laybourne, author of Berserker, Sweet, and the Monument 14 trilogy “A rare, literary feat.” —Gennifer Albin, New York Times bestselling author of the Crewel World trilogy The Dark Intercept is a Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) Excellence in Children’s and Young Adult Science Fiction Notable List selection!

Dick Wolf, the celebrated creator of the Law & Order television franchise, makes his literary debut with The Intercept, a taut, driving thriller reminiscent of the classic The Day of the Jackal. Days before the July Fourth holiday and the dedication of One World Trade Center at Ground Zero, an incident aboard a commercial jet reminds everyone involved that vigilance saves lives. But New York Police detective Jeremy Fisk—from the department’s Intelligence Division, a well-funded anti-terror unit modeled upon the CIA—suspects that the event is a warning sign that another, potentially more extraordinary scheme has been set in motion. So when a passenger from the same plane disappears into the crowds of Manhattan, it’s up to Fisk and his partner Krina Gersten to find him before the celebrations begin... And time is running out.

The number of individuals with severe mental illness in the criminal justice system is shockingly high. However, there is a wealth of research that shows that the traditional incarceration model is not effective with this population, and that many of these individuals can be helped in the community at less cost without increased risk to public safety by addressing their risk-relevant needs and improving their opportunities for recovery. As a result, during the last decade there has been an increasing interest in community-based alternatives to incarceration for individuals with severe mental illness. The Sequential Intercept Model and Criminal Justice offers an overview of the recent changes in correctional policy and practice that reflect an increased focus on community-based alternatives for offenders. Developed by Drs. Mark Munetz and Patricia Griffin, the Sequential Intercept Model (SIM) identifies five conceptual points at which standard criminal processing can be interrupted to offer community-based alternatives: (1) law enforcement/emergency services; (2) initial detention/initial court hearings; (3) jails/courts; (4) re-entry; and (5) community corrections/support. This volume describes the SIM in detail and reviews empirical evidence for each of its five points of interception. Chapters focus on its implementation, starting with an analysis of the national and state-level initiatives, then addressing specific challenges. A final section suggests how the SIM might be applied successfully to other populations (e.g., veterans, juveniles, and those with developmental disabilities). This volume will appeal to policy makers who are considering community-based alternatives, practitioners who carry out these changes, and program evaluators who seek to document the impact of such changes.

Operation Intercept: The Multiple Consequences of Public Policy analyzes the taken-for-granted reality of the search-and-destroy anti-marihuana legislation. This book focuses on the Operation Intercept, a policy that aims to control the importation of illegal drugs, marihuana in particular, across the United States-Mexican border. Chapter 1 discusses the objectives of Operation Intercept and the factors and assumptions underlying this policy. Chapter 2 examines the availability of marihuana during the Operation Intercept period and the unanticipated consequences of such policy decision. Chapter 3 presents data that confirms marihuana shortage in New York City during the summer and early fall of 1969. Lastly, Chapter 4 provides an appraisal of anti-drug policies in the past and an examination of the general drug abuse problem in the United States. Sociologists who are interested in deviant behavior and social problems will find this book invaluable.

The creation of this Privy Council Review was announced on 25 July 2007 "to advise on whether a regime to allow the use of intercepted material in court can be devised that facilitates bringing cases to trial while meeting the overriding imperative to safeguard national security". All bodies and individuals that met with or provided evidence to the Review were in favour in principle of intercept as evidence. But there were very different views as to whether national security could be safeguarded effectively. The Review endorses the principles that: there is an overriding imperative to safeguard national security; all trials must be (and be seen to be) procedurally fair; the State should wherever possible prosecute those it believes are involved in terrorism or other serious crimes; in any criminal prosecution the best available evidence should be made available in court. The report examines: current use of intercept; potential use and benefit of intercept as evidence; risks; resource implications; new communications technology; relevance of experiences of other countries; legal models. The Review concludes that intercept as evidence should be introduced. It believes that it would be possible to provide for the use of intercept as evidence in criminal trials in England and Wales by developing a robust legal model, based in statute and compatible with the European Convention on Human Rights. A model - PII Plus (PII = Public Interest Immunity) - is suggested as the basis, and the Review outlines further preparatory work and confidence-building measures necessary to develop a detailed regime.
