Introduction: Rackets is a case tracking and mapping application developed by the Center for Applied Studies of the Environment (CAPSE) for the U.S. Attorney?s Office (USAO), Southern District of New York (SDNY), hereto referred to as SDNY. The SDNY and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) provided the funding for this project. Work on the project began in July 1997 and the bulk of which ended in October of 1998. The impetus for Rackets developed out of a desire by the SDNY to move away from the traditionally episodic way of handling cases to a comprehensive and strategic method, The SDNY is the federal prosecuting office for Manhattan and Bronx counties in New York City, as well as Westchester and several other northern counties. As such, the Office?s primary mission is to investigate and prosecute federal crimes in these counties. In the course of this work, the Office interacts with many different federal, state and local agencies. Oftentimes, information gathered by one agency for a certain case is related to other cases under investigation by other agencies without either agency aware of the other?s investigation. For example, the Department of Agriculture may be investigating Food Stamp fraud in a grocery store where the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is investigating a gun trafficking ring and there may be a critical link that could strengthen both cases.
