The Cybercrime Handbook for Community Corrections: Managing Offender Risk in the 21st Century

October 1st, 2011

Well, we settled on a title for the book: The Cybercrime Handbook for Community Corrections: Managing Offender Risk in the 21st Century. My publisher, Charles C. Thomas Pub Ltd., has returned the page proofs to me for final review and I am working on the index. Briefly, the book covers also aspects of managing an offender’s computer use and includes such topics as searching, computer monitoring and online investigations in a community correction setting. It was written to empower pretrial, probation, and parole officers to meet the supervision challenges of the twenty-first century. Those who help train or assist these officers, such as law enforcement and IT staff , will also benefit from its contents. Additionally, anyone involved in managing a community corrections agency (supervisors, chiefs, court administrators, judges, parole commissioners, corrections directors, etc.) will also find its contents beneficial. Finally, both prosecutors and defense attorneys will be in a better position to advocate the various sentencing options, including the imposition of technological conditions, by reviewing this book’s material.  I obviously am pleased with the results but don’t just take my word.  Jim Tanner, national cybercrime expert and Project Coordinator for NLECTC (and KBSolutions’) Field Search Project honored me with writing the book’s Foreword.  He notes in part:  ‘

Not only does this book help community corrections professionals understand how to monitor computer use, but it helps us realize how information gained during monitoring can assist us in overall case management. The technology is now readily available to effectively manage offenders’ digital behavior. Bowker’s book moves us all toward a more informed use of the technology.

Depending upon how fast I can get these page proofs back and the index finalized it will be available in January or February of 2012. Look for further updates at Charles C. Thomas Pub Ltd. or check back here.
