The Wickersham Commission undertook the first federal assessment of law enforcement in the United States. It set up various committees on issues concerning the observance of Prohibition, the causes and costs of crime, the operation of federal courts, and the problem of official lawlessness. The Wickersham Commission collected wide-ranging background data on the causes of crime, criminal statistics, the costs of crime, juvenile delinquency, psychiatry and the law, and Prohibition. Available to researchers in Part 2: Research Reports and General Subject Files, this data came from government agencies and interrogations of persons connected with the criminal justice system.
