    Abstract

    In the past decade violent crimes have allegedly increased 174% at a time when the population of the United States has increased only 11%. Murders have allegedly increased 129%; forcible rape, 192%; robberies, 226%; and aggravated assaults, 139% [1]. During the same decade local spending for law enforcement has increased sevenfold, from one billion to seven billion dollars [1]. In addition, during the past half-decade, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration has provided $3.5 billion to help state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to stem crime on the national scene [1].
