Kidnaping of Juveniles: Patterns From NIBRS
(NCJ 181161) July 2000
OJJDP Crimes Against Children Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
Scahill, M. C.
Examines data from the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) on kidnaping of juveniles. Part of the Crimes Against Children series, this OJJDP Bulletin analyses 1997 NIBRS data (collected from 12 States) on kidnaping that suggests that these crimes can be categorized into three groups based on the identity of the perpetrator: family kidnaping, acquaintance kidnaping, and stranger kidnaping. The Bulletin provides statistical descriptions of these crimes as they relate to factors such as the time of day and location of the incident or the perpetrator's use of a weapon.
