Abstract:

Strategies and tactics relevant to increasing the efficiency andor effectiveness of an administration-of-justice system may be at considerable variance with the strategies and tactics appropriate to a system for optimizing public order and security within the constraints implicit in a free society. Both the scientist and the technician have responsibilities to the law enforcement community in assisting with the complex task of explicating the ramifications implicit in the selection of objectives and the choice of approaches--technological and conceptual -- to be implemented.
