"Re-examining Alaska Domestic Violence Crime and Punishment," appeared online August 21, 2013.
The grant funds will be used to support a new AJSAC research initiative
called the Alaska Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Case Processing
Project, a collaborative project with the Alaska Department of Public
Safety, the Alaska Department of Law, and the Alaska Department of
Health and Social Services, Division of Juvenile Justice.
The primary objective of the project is to empirically document the
criminal justice case processing and outcomes of sexual assault, sexual
abuse of a minor, and domestic violence cases in the state of Alaska. In
coming years, Dr. Myrstol intends to expand the project to include
additional Alaska police agencies.
The AJSAC is housed at the UAA Justice Center. For more information
