CRJ 110 – Module 8 Homework Assignment PART I: ESSAY Directions: Answer the question below. Your response should be at least one page in length. 1. Review the websites listed below to learn more about future trends in crime and law enforcement’s response to that crime. Write an essay that predicts the changing nature of crime and explains effective law enforcement responses to crime in the twenty-first century. Be sure to include the following information in your essay: (1) What types of crimes will be the most prevalent?; (2) How will new technologies affect law enforcement and individual rights?; (3) How will police departments and prosecutorial agencies respond to new vanguards in criminal justice?; (4) Do traditional notions of “jurisdiction” and national boundaries hinder the ability to investigate crimes in the new “cyberworld?”; and (5) Discuss the current trends in both violent crimes and property crimes, and project future crime trends based on your research and observations. • http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/itb/it-strategic-plan-2010-2015 • http://www.interpol.int/public/FinancialCrime/IntellectualProperty/Default.asp • http://www.ojjdp.gov/pubs/reform/ch1_d.html • http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/enibrscs.pdf PART II: COURSE PROJECT: CRIMES AND THEORIES (Compilation of Modules 1-8) Directions: This course project will include a written component for each module that will be turned in at the end of the course in Module 8. Criminology is the study of crime and criminal behaviors based on theory. Your textbook defines a theory as a series of interrelated propositions that attempts to describe, explain, predict, and ultimately control some class of events. A theory gains explanatory power from inherent logical consistency and is “tested” by how well it describes and predicts reality. To assist you with this project, the textbook defines theories throughout. The theories associated with criminology can be applied to the crimes we see committed in the news each week. Thus, this course project will involve locating two crimes (one in your local or nearly surrounding communities and one national) and applying the crimes you locate to one of the theories learned in this course. For example: Situational Choice Theory could be related to a crime of robbing a person because this type of crime often depends on the situation involved, such as a victim being in the right place at the right time and other factors that lends to the ability to commit the crime, including location, time of day, environmental factors, and the victim being alone and in possession of items the offender desires. Requirements: For each module, locate a local and national crime, describe the details and source of the crime (also be sure to keep a reference page with all the sources used throughout the course project). Identify an appropriate theory learned during this course, describe the theory, and then explain how the theory relates to the crime chosen. Thus, each part should [INSERT TITLE HERE] 3 require at least one paragraph as follows: 1. Chosen description and details of the crime 2. Chosen Theory, including definition and founder 3. Explanation of how the chosen theory relates to the chosen crime. Repeat this process for each crime – one local and one national for a total of a minimum of six paragraphs per Module. Sources of crimes include newspapers, websites, television news stations, etc. You can use theories repeatedly for this project; however, try to use varying theories to demonstrate an understanding of as many course criminological theories as possible. Be sure to include APA formatting, including a cover page, in-text citations, and a reference page (please visit the Academic Resource Center for concise APA guidelines). For each module, be sure to include the date with either Local or National next to the date as the title for that module assignment. Note that there must be two titles for each module (one for local and one for national). Grading will be in part on ensuring that the course project included both a local and national component for each module. Thus, the final project should have a minimum of 16 Crimes with Theories Applied (two per module). You will also be graded on your APA formatting, reference page, grammar, and spelling.

PART II: COURSE PROJECT: CRIMES AND THEORIES

 

(Compilation of Modules 1-8)

 

Directions: This course project will include a written component for each module that will be

turned in at the end of the course in Module 8. Criminology is the study of crime and criminal

behaviors based on theory. Your textbook defines a theory as a series of interrelated

propositions that attempts to describe, explain, predict, and ultimately control some class of

events. A theory gains explanatory power from inherent logical consistency and is “tested” by

how well it describes and predicts reality. To assist you with this project, the textbook defines

theories throughout. The theories associated with criminology can be applied to the crimes we

see committed in the news each week. Thus, this course project will involve locating two crimes

(one in your local or nearly surrounding communities and one national) and applying the crimes

you locate to one of the theories learned in this course.

 

For example: Situational Choice Theory could be related to a crime of robbing a person because

this type of crime often depends on the situation involved, such as a victim being in the right

place at the right time and other factors that lends to the ability to commit the crime, including

location, time of day, environmental factors, and the victim being alone and in possession of

items the offender desires.

 

Requirements: For each module, locate a local and national crime, describe the details and

source of the crime (also be sure to keep a reference page with all the sources used throughout

the course project). Identify an appropriate theory learned during this course, describe the

theory, and then explain how the theory relates to the crime chosen. Thus, each part should [INSERT TITLE HERE] 3

require at least one paragraph as follows:

 

1. Chosen description and details of the crime

2. Chosen Theory, including definition and founder

3. Explanation of how the chosen theory relates to the chosen crime.

 

Repeat this process for each crime – one local and one national for a total of a minimum of six

paragraphs per Module. Sources of crimes include newspapers, websites, television news

stations, etc. You can use theories repeatedly for this project; however, try to use varying

theories to demonstrate an understanding of as many course criminological theories as possible.

 

Be sure to include APA formatting, including a cover page, in-text citations, and a reference

page (please visit the Academic Resource Center for concise APA guidelines). For each module,

be sure to include the date with either Local or National next to the date as the title for that

module assignment. Note that there must be two titles for each module (one for local and one for

national). Grading will be in part on ensuring that the course project included both a local and

national component for each module. Thus, the final project should have a minimum of 16

Crimes with Theories Applied (two per module). You will also be graded on your APA

formatting, reference page, grammar, and spelling.
