Here’s What Happened . . .
You have just been promoted to sergeant in the Community Policing Division of the Centervale Police Department. Your first assignment is to examine the criminal behavior in your area and work with local agencies to develop proactive policies to help reduce criminal activity and lower the overall crime rate. Your jurisdiction covers many different areas; you know that a one-size-fits-all approach will not work. You decide to break down your jurisdiction into smaller areas to tackle them individually.
Here’s What You Need To Do . . .
Review the details and prepare a 3â€“4-page report that discusses the criminal activity in these areas. Compose your paper based on the following points:
- Analyze and evaluate each area. Based on your knowledge of the explanations of crime, identify and discuss key factors (for example, biological, environmental, and cultural) that may influence criminal activity.
- Select and apply the best criminological theory to explain the criminal activity for each area. Identify and discuss each area’s specific characteristics as they relate to the theory’s specific concepts and key terms. Be sure to include each tenet of the theory and explain how it connects to the characteristics of the specific area.
- Support your explanations with research gleaned from assigned readings, optional readings, and additional credible academic sources.
- Create a three-pronged plan to recommend that promotes crime reduction for each specific area to present to the city’s stakeholders. Compose a clear and concise theoretical argument for your plan. Be sure to use the tenets of the selected theory to support each prong of your plan.
