The United States government publishes a great deal of information related to all aspects of criminal justice. Much of this is now available on the web; some significant key online publications were noted under the Statistics tab of this guide. The Pius Library Government Documents website (http://lib.slu.edu/research/government-documents) describes the content of the library's federal documents collection.
Some of the agency web links below link, in turn, to other subject, state, and local resources. For assistance identifying and locating web-based government information on criminal justice, as well as related publications held in paper or microfiche formats in the Pius Library government documents collection, consult a research & instruction librarian.
