What are three factors that lead to the crime or criminal justice issue you identified? Identify possible solutions to the crime or criminal justice issue you selected. Why do you think these solutions would be effective solutions? Are your solutions cost effective? SARA Problem-Solving Process Process. The Department of Justice published the pamphlet, Crime Analysis for Problem Solvers in 60 Small Steps. Step 7 addresses the Problem solving process. Discuss the four components of the SARA model. How does the SARA model contribute to identifying and narrowing the crime or criminal issue for study? Why is it important to proceed through each step consecutively and not skip steps? Journal Article Review: Court Crime Prevention Programs Programs. During this course you will submit three journal article reviews from the Ashford Online Library. You can use this research in your Final Project due in Week Five. The reviews will addresses crime prevention strategies through one of the following criminal justice system components: a. Policing Crime Prevention Programs – policing, schools, community oriented policing (covered in Chapter 7 of Crime Prevention) b. Court Crime Prevention Programs – the Courts or sentencing (covered in Chapter 8 of Crime Prevention) c. Corrections Crime Prevention Programs – corrections, jails and prisons, boot camps, rehabilitation, or restoration (covered in Chapter 9 of Crime Prevention)


There are journal article reviews due in Weeks One, Three, and Four. For this week, select an article on a court-initiated crime prevention program. In this review, do the following: a. Summarize the article. Which type of crime prevention strategy is being addressed? b. Identify the key findings and recommendations. c. Cite the article in APA format. Information on APA is available in the Ashford Writing center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course. Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words in length. Targeting of Crime Prevention Programs Programs. Our course text addresses targeting crime prevention programs towards individuals (Chapter 3), groups (Chapter 4), or the community (Chapter 5). Select one of these, and address the strengths and weaknesses of a crime prevention strategy focused at individuals, groups, or the community. How will the crime prevention strategy contribute to social and criminal justice? Problem Analysis Triangle Triangle. The Department of Justice published the pamphlet, Crime Analysis for Problem Solvers in 60 Small Steps. Step 8 addresses the Problem Analysis Triangle. What are the components of the problem analysis triangle, and why is it so effective in analyzing crimes and criminal issues? How does it help us understand and develop crime prevention strategies? How does it help public officials to present crime prevention strategies to the public? Statistical Analysis Presentation Presentation. For this assignment, you can choose to either create a PowerPoint presentation or write a report depicting your analysis of historical crime data for a specific category of crime or criminal issue. Focus your research on one component of the criminal justice system (i.e., law enforcement, courts, or corrections). The data and charts you develop may be used in your Final Project. For this assignment, you will: a. Present national data and trends based on the FBI – Uniform Crime Report and/or the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) – National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), or another comparable nationally recognized database, such as The Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool. Or, for an international perspective, you may present data available at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s Crime and criminal justice statistics.


b. Present local data from a city, county, or state for three comparable locations in size from three different regions of the country (e.g., Indianapolis, Austin, and San Francisco). This information should be found on official government websites. c. Develop questions you would like to address based on the data you retrieved. (Note: You do not have to answer these questions for this assignment.) What crime prevention programs or initiatives are available to potentially address the crime or criminal justice issue? (Note: You are working through Step 18 in Crime Analysis for Problem Solvers in 60 Small Steps.) If you choose to create a PowerPoint Presentation, graphically display the statistical data developed for three comparable cities, counties, or states. Your presentation will incorporate national statistics for comparison. Your assessment may be in bullet or paragraph format and will be provided in the notes section of the presentation.

In Chapter 7 of Crime Prevention, Robinson states that "Rational choice and deterrence theories are two related theories that help understand why criminal justice – including crime control and crime prevention activities of police, courts, and corrections – should help us reduce crime in society" (2012). Answer one of the following questions: a. How do these theories help us understand the relationship between criminals and law enforcement, the courts, corrections, and society? b. What are some of the results we would expect to see if these theories are correct in assessing criminal activity? c. How would the rational choice and deterrence theories change the policing strategy of your department if you were in a police department utilizing traditional policing techniques or a department utilizing community oriented and problem solving techniques?


Twenty-five Techniques of Situational Prevention Prevention. Identify a crime or criminal issue that you believe has a law enforcement solution. Considering the Problem Analysis Chart (Step 8) in Crime Analysis for Problem Solvers in 60 Small Steps (assigned reading for Week Two) and the Twenty Five Techniques of Situational Prevention chart, propose a potential solution to the crime or criminal issue you identified.

Focus of the Final Project The purpose of the Final Project is for you to demonstrate your understanding of crime prevention programs and the role crime prevention plays in the overall criminal justice system. You may select a crime prevention program that addresses law enforcement, the courts, or corrections; or it may be a comprehensive program that addresses all three. The program may address the adult justice system, juvenile justice systems, or both. For the purposes of this assignment assume, you are preparing a proposal to a city, county, or state governmental body to recommend the implementation of a crime prevention program within their jurisdiction. You need to demonstrate the value of the crime prevention program and its effectiveness in reducing crime thus reducing the overall costs to the jurisdiction or building value that improves the effectiveness of crime prevention to the community justifying the additional expenditures. Your proposal will include:


1. A summary of the jurisdiction (i.e., city, county, or state) and the portion of the criminal justice System your proposal is designed to address. 2. An analysis of the current trends from three comparable cities in population size, utilizing the SARA Model and the Crime Analysis Triangle. (Note: Crime Analysis for Problem Solvers in 60 Small Steps, Steps 7 and 8). You will compare the data from three comparable jurisdictions and compare it to national data. 3. A determination of the appropriate crime prevention strategy for the jurisdiction based on this analysis. 4. A review of academic literature and studies on the various crime prevention programs to address the needs of the community. How does the crime prevention program address social justice issues of the community? 5. A critical analysis of the various programs showing their effectiveness in comparable jurisdictions. 6. Your recommendations based on your analysis and conclusions. Your recommendations must include a funding strategy for program implementation. 7. Your anticipated outcomes, both short and long term. How does the crime prevention program affect social justice within the community?
