Increased occurrences of antisocial behavior, dangerous driving, and crime after a boom place significant demands on the police, courts, and corrections. This chapter describes the impact of the boom on these agencies, and respondents in boomtown studies report an increased number of calls for services from the public, delays in the time it takes cases to work their way through the courts, probation officers who find it difficult to manage their large caseloads, and overcrowded local jails. Turnover in many of these agencies is high as local agencies find it difficult to compete with the higher pay offered by the oil-field industries. In addition to describing the challenges faced by these public agencies, the roles that private security and first-responders play in crime prevention and responding to disorder and unintentional injuries are also profiled. Altogether, these public, private, and voluntary organizations play an important role in managing the disorder created by the boom.
