This paper should be no more than 10 pages in length (approx. 2500 words double-spaced excluding the titles page and reference page) and written in a style appropriate for an academic audience. You must cite at least five sources. The choice of books articles web resources etc. is entirely at your discretion however at least three of the five must be academic quality peer-reviewed research articles.
At a minimum this paper must include the following:
1. WHAT is the problem?
a. Convince the reader of why the problem you are aiming to solve is important.
2. Review of the history of the problem.
a. For example instead of domestic assault the problem might be lack of treatment options for domestic assault victims. If this were the case the history of your problem would not be a history of domestic assault but a history of anger management counseling and other types of treatment options that have developed over time for domestic assault offenders. Then you would move into a discussion of how options like these are not readily available for most domestic assault victims. Which brings us to
3. WHO does the problem impact?
a. Offender profile
b. Victim(s) profile
4. WHERE and WHEN is the problem most/least prevalent?
a. Geographical profile
b. Time profile
c. If this is a problem that impacts your community more than others discuss why. For example if you are studying gang activity it is likely more prevalent in Minneapolis or St. Paul than out in the suburban or rural parts of Minnesota. Or perhaps you are studying DWI which may be more prevalent in outlying areas.
Look at statistics from the web (and cite them) to make valid statements about the location and prevalence of your problem.
5. WHY is this a problem?
a. Heres where you begin to think and write about the big why questions. How did your problem become a problem? Does it have anything to do with other social or structural factors? For example you may have noticed that kids loitering in your neighborhood significantly increased when a new outdoor shopping mall was built. Or maybe your problem is related to lack of treatment opportunities (for mental health drugs alcohol) in the correctional system. Think about why you identified this as a problem in the first place.
6. HOW are law enforcement and criminal justice agencies affected? Which part(s) of the CJS system are most affected and why?
a. While this may seem obvious to you you need to be as specific as possible about how the criminal justice system is affected. Maybe the problem is something that law enforcement faces on a daily basis but that does not necessarily mean the corrections system has anything to do with it at all. In other words dont treat the system as a whole; decide what part of the system your particular problem impacts.
