Research by associate professor Laura King and professor Lisa Growette Bostaph, criminal justice faculty in the School of Public Service, was highlighted in several pieces recently published by local media:

“Is a constitutional amendment in Idaho’s future after ruling impacted domestic violence cases?”

and: “Legislation aims to change warrantless arrest law in Idaho”

Both articles reference King and Bostaph’s biennial report focusing on victimization and victim services in Idaho. Funded by the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victims Assistance, the findings will be published throughout 2020 in a series of smaller reports, with the full report being completed by December.

“We have annual reports on how much crime occurs and how many people are offending, but we do nothing on looking at victimization and about people who are victimized,” Bostaph said.
