Deacon emphasizes in this essay the importance of increasing knowledge about victimization and the effects of crime, particularly in the areas of organized crime and transnational crime. There have been many innovations in the last ten years in criminal justice policy and programs relating to crime prevention, effects of crime on community, and the needs and concerns of victims of crime. In this context, Deacon explores the effects of organized crime, methods for measuring those effects, potential applications for data on the effects of crime, and individual victimization in terms of organizational and transnational crime.
