The recommended terminology is intended to promote the unambiguous description and communication of basic facts concerning criminal and juvenile justice processes, agencies, alleged and adjudicated offenders, and offenses. Model data structures describe standardizable units and events in selected subject areas and explicate category and term relationships.

But most of all, they will learn how to follow the first rule of the criminal justice system: AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS.
