Most Crime By Repeat Offenders

Many of the crimes committed in Central New Jersey are committed by repeat and prolific offenders — those with more than five felony convictions. And the vast majority of those repeat offenders in Central New Jersey share at least one type of crime in common — a drug offense — according to a Gannett New Jersey review of state conviction records. Starting March 18, 2007 you can search for any offender by name on the Home News Tribune's public records site. Visit and click on "NJ Conviction Records" to begin your search. The records, once available only from courthouse computers or from Internet information vendors who charged up to $50 a search, are free to review on DataUniverse.

The Sex Offender Registry You Can't See

Under the so-called "restricted" sex offender registry 41 convicted sex offenders have successfully petitioned the Connecticut court to limit access to that information. Their status as a sex offender will be known for "law enforcement purposes only." The statute says in part that shielded registration is available when there is a family relationship between the offender and the victim, and if the court finds that "publication of the registration information would be likely to reveal the identity of the victim." At the end of February, there were 4,529 on the public registry. Another 41 were on the restricted list, according to the executive officer for the registry, state police Sgt. Samuel Izzarelli.

Licenses May Identify Offenders

TULSA, Okla.- A new bill is being considered in Tulsa, Oklahoma which would tell if someone shouldn't be around kids. The place to be at least Monday afternoon is the playground at Eisenhower International School. But the school isn't a place where registered sex offenders should be in or around and at least one parent says she does worry about that. A proposed law would make it so registered sex offenders could be identified by their driver licenses if they went into a school for something like a delivery. Some parents say it’s a great idea while others aren’t so sure. “It would be different if the words pedophile were on there-- but sex offender may be something stupid somebody did in college-- I mean it covers a huge variety of offenses and to me-- it's too vague-- it's too big.” “I know they give fake addresses and you don't know where they are all the time-- and once you show that id then you'll know they're a registered sex offender.”

Easy Guns at Ranges Lend Themselves to Suicides

Yet another gun range is being criticized after suicides there. Like the fabled Don’s Guns, lots of gun ranges offer rental firearms to anyone who walks in the door. And as a result, those gun ranges are seeing gun violence, most commonly in the form of suicides. Now, this incident is unlike many other suicides at the firearm range, because in this case, Hartzel was on the verge of actually obtaining a permit to carry or possess a gun. In many cases, firearm range owners will simply rent guns out, even to people who don’t have permits and haven’t gone through any background checks, for use on the range.

Take the Guesswork Out of Hiring Call Center Employees

In order to fill your call centers with the most qualified agents, you need to conduct assessments and simulations before the interview process even begins. Tossing a coin may be a good way to start a football game, but it's a lousy way to select new employees. Yet, tossing a coin is comparable to the hiring practices of most call centers. Many companies' processes for screening applicants may seem thorough. But they tend to suffer from a serious flaw, which is that companies don't see candidates in action before they hire them. When a company extends a job offer, the fundamental question remains unanswered: How will this person perform? Performance is only one uncertainty. Other questions persist. How does the candidate handle stress? Hiring practices seldom include observations of call center candidates under job-related conditions. With one company we worked with, the performance of the call centers was critical to the overall company's success. Faced with the continuing need to provide better service at lower costs in the call centers, they used us to help them rewrite their approach to screening, assessing and observing applicants. The success achieved was measurably greater than it was with the previous method of hiring agents, which was probably about as good as tossing a coin.

Indian BPO's fight CV fraud

Falsification of resumes, impersonators, in brief people recruitment is the biggest problem faced by about 15-20% of the IT-ITeS sector. The problem needs to be tackled at a country level, wherein the government has a unique identification number like the social security number in the US for every citizen. Cases of potential employees falsifying resumes exists in all industries. However screening of employees is more stringent in BPOs mainly to maintain a secure environment where customer data is protected and to eliminate information security breaches.To solve these problems, Nasscom had launched the National Skills Registry (NSR) in January 2006. The NSR is a centraliszd database of employees of the IT services and BPO companies, which many companies use to run background checks on their employees. Currently, a little over 50,000 employees from around 32 companies including Satyam, TCS, Genpact, WNS, Wipro and Firstsource have registered with the NSR, according to Nasscom.

Insider Threat Study: Computer System Sabotage in Critical Infrastructure Sectors

The insider Threat Study (ITS) was designed to analyze these incidents from both a behavioral and a technical perspective. The cases examined in the Insider Threat Study are incidents perpetrated by insiders (current or former employees or contractors) who intentionally exceeded or misused an authorized level of network, system, or data access in a manner that affected the security of the organizations’ data, systems, or daily business operations. Cases involved incidents that have occurred in critical infrastructure sectors between 1996 and 2002. Research for this report found that the majority of the insiders who committed acts of sabotage were former employees who had held technical positions with the targeted organizations. As a result of their involvement in the incidents reviewed for this study, almost all of the insiders were charged with criminal offenses. The majority of these charges were based on violations of federal law. The key findings from this study of insider sabotage across critical infrastructure sectors are the following:

 Infinity Screening is Real

Security increasing at DIA

The federal government is stepping up security at Denver International Airport, implementing random employee screening. In Denver, the agency recently began random checks of DIA employees moving from restricted parts of the airport - such as the tarmac - to secure areas on the other side of the main security checkpoints. DIA's 30,000 workers have to clear extensive background checks and threat assessments before they're hired, and they must scan their badges to access different areas of the airport. But they aren't subject on a daily basis to the same rigid process used to screen passengers. Under the new program, a group of handpicked TSA workers conducts searches of employees at unannounced entry points - at undisclosed times - around the airport. Employees must remove metal objects, jackets and hats and are subject to a pat-down and screening with a handheld wand. The checks, which the TSA implemented at more than 100 U.S. airports, are tailored for every type of employee, including mechanics, pilots, gate agents and customer service workers.
