March 2009 

The March 2009 issue of Juristat contains four articles.

In contrast to most violent crimes, police-reported incidents of forcible confinement have been steadily rising since the late 1980s. "Forcible confinement in Canada, 2007" examines the incidence and nature of forcible confinement in Canada and discusses the long- and short-term trends in this offence.

The second article, "Aging of justice personnel," explores the issue of workforce renewal in justice-related occupations from a demographic perspective.

Using newly available data, "Child luring through the Internet" presents a snapshot of the characteristics of this relatively new criminal offence and the people accused of committing it.

The final article, "Profile of child support beneficiaries," provides an overview of families who receive child support payments, how many receive payments, the size of the payments, how regularly payments are made and actions taken to enforce payment.
