Technology-facilitated Organized Abuse: An Examination of Law Enforcement Arrest Cases

Abstract

This paper looks at cases of organized abuse (that is, two or more offenders working in concert and having two or more victims, not solely familial) reported by law enforcement respondents during the three waves of the National Juvenile Online Victimization (NJOV) Study (n=29). The NJOV Study collected data from a national US sample of law enforcement agencies about technology-facilitated crimes ending in arrest at three time points: mid-2000 to mid-2001, 2005 and 2009. The paper reports on the prevalence of technology-facilitated organized abuse ending in arrest, contexts of cases and characteristics of offenders and victims.
