Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA)
The purpose of this research is to examine the factors affecting prosecutorial decision-making and to measure the differences that occur in decision-making within an office and among offices. Within offices, the research focuses on a separate but related issue; namely, the causes of disagreement in decisions among individual prosecutors themselves and in relation to their organizational leaders. A quasi-experimental design employing a before/after test was used, the identical instrument was employed on both occasions.
