Throughout this program, we have discussed a variety of topics ranging from leadership and management to forensics and crime scenes, from crime mapping and budgets to computers and terrorism. All of these areas play a major role in the shaping of our criminal justice system. Although it is not a perfect system, it is arguably the best system in the world.
As you either begin or continue in your professional careers, you will be challenged daily to think critically and develop policies and strategies that will have the potential to impact the lives of everyone. Although certain issues that impact CJ professionals appear to be narrowly focused, a careful examination of each component will reveal that the overall effect on society as a whole is staggering.
Your project is to select one of the topics below and provide a comprehensive and thorough overview of the key themes, incorporating knowledge gained from all of the courses in this program. Each of these topics has been heavily debated amongst criminal justice professionals because of the inherent problems associated with their current state.
THIS IS NOT AN OPINION PAPER but one in which you should include a discussion of all major themes, including the impact that the issue has on society, as well as how it affects each area of the criminal justice system. Since technology is commonplace in our daily lives, you should also consider how it impacts the issue.
Finally, develop at least one plausible solution to the problem. In your solution, make sure that you discuss the potential costs and benefits, as well as the resources needed to implement your plan.
