Week 11 Discussion

Criminal Justice Research and Public Policy

Without research, responses to crime would be based on opinions, emotions, and other factors that do not contribute to a reduction in the crime rate. Now that you have reviewed research on a wide range of topics as well as drafted a policy recommendation based on in-depth research about a topic, you may have greater insight on the challenges facing researchers and the role of research in the development of criminal justice policy at large. You may also have a better idea of how such research may play a role in your own career.

For this Discussion read the Learning Resources reflect upon the role of research in helping to develop effective criminal justice policies.

Post by Day 3 the extent to which you believe evidence-based research informs the development of effective criminal justice policy and why. Support your response with an example from the literature. Next, explain whether evidence-based research will inform your future role as a criminal justice professional and why.
