This first edition proposes standard names, phrases, and definitions in selected areas of terminology needed for the communication of basic criminal justice information and statistics between states and at the national level.

Over 260 alphabetical entries contain information on part of speech and exact synonyms, as well as a definition for each term. Where necessary, defining feature lists, recommended conditions of use, and annotations are added. Statistical terms are marked with number signs. A section of classified lists for the statistical terms describing processes, entities and crimes in class-subclass arrangements, an index, and a user response form for opinions on the dictionary are included.
