Abstract

Extract:
Having gathered data on the subject of false allegations of crime for more than a decade, we have observed that false allegations are not only commonplace but also a significant drain on law enforcement resources. Ignorance on the subject abounds, as does political motivation. Consequently, it remains a tremendous problem that few have sought to define, let alone solve.
