During this research assignment, you are to create a 3-page (minimum) double-spaced research paper that has utilized at least three reference sources. This paper must consist of a topic associated with the course work, i.e.: Ethics in CJ , Categories of Crime and Sources of Crime Date , Causes of Crime , The Role of Police , The Structure of Courts in the US , Court Procedures After Arrest , Punishment & Sentencing , Community Corrections , Juvenile Corrections . Use your first page to fully describe the topic you’ve selected, then research a case within the CJ system that can explain how your topic is carried out within the CJ system.
For example, if a student chose the topic Ethics in CJ (CH1), they may explain ethics as associated with corrections. After fully discussing ethical responsibilities of Correction Officer’s, Probation and Parole Officers, and Correctional administrators & staff during the first page of the assignment, the student would then find a case with ethical violations that created a problem. The selected case should be summarized and discussed throughout the final pages of the paper, specifically reflecting upon the ethical issues that were violated. The student would not simply tell the story of the particular case, they would discuss the ethical violations being sure to cite their text or other source of reference.
List all sources of research at the end of your paper in your Reference Page using APA guidelines for listing authors, dates, titles, and publishing information.
Your reference sources for the paper must be from local or national reputable news outlets, and/or scholarly peer reviewed journals, such as those provided in EBSCO and ProQuest. Wikipedia and opinion blogs are not approved sources.
This assignment is to be a minimum of 3 pages in length, not including your Cover Page and Reference Page.
