In February, Dallas County started providing arrestees
with a brief assessment of their financial resources before declaring a bail amount.
(b) The police officer carrying out the arrest should prepare a memo of arrest at the time of arrest and such memo shall be attested by at least one witness, who may be either a member of the family of the arrestee
or a respectable person of the locality from where the arrest is made.
These decisions state a broader rule than the early strip-search cases: Any practice that requires an arrestee
to be seen naked by jail staff violates the Fourth Amendment unless reasonable suspicion exists to justify the search.
It should be noted that the court was reviewing this case to determine if it was appropriate to grant the arresting officer qualified immunity and therefore, assumed facts in a light most favorable to the arrestee
. See also U.S.
The most prevalent drug among the welfarereceiving arrestee
population was cocaine (48 Percent), followed by marijuana (27 percent) (Table 2).
Five major national surveys reported on the use of heroin among several diverse populations: the Arrestee
Drug Abuse Monitoring (ADAM) Program (National Institute of Justice [NIJ], 1999b), the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN; Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA], 1998), Monitoring the Future (MTF; Johnston, O'Malley, & Bachman, 1999), the National Household Survey of Drug Abuse (NHSDA; SAMHSA, 1999), and the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS; SAMHSA, 1997).
To explore the temporal consistency of agreement between two recent drug use measures, marijuana urinalysis results are compared to self-reported 30-day marijuana use for 33,313 juvenile arrestees
surveyed through the Arrestee
Drug Monitoring (ADAM) Program between 1991 and 1997.
Despite the low probability of harm, discharge of an arrestee
with medical needs presents a high-risk situation that demands detailed standards for medical and police conduct.
Data collected in the Arrestee
Drug Abuse Monitoring (ADAM) program on alcohol and other drug use among arrestees
provide a valuable opportunity to examine the relationship between alcohol use and violence.
Finally, the Arrestee
Drug Abuse Monitoring (ADAM) Program, begun as the Drug Use Forecasting (DUF) Program and funded by the National Institute of Justice, collects self-report survey data and urine specimens from a sample of arrestees
across the United States (NIJ, 1999a).
This report summarizes the results of the survey, which indicates that most facilities treat for STDs based on symptoms or by arrestee
request and do not routinely screen asymptomatic persons.
