Research Process and Terminology Paper Kelli Love CJA/334 July 5, 2015 Greg Moore Research Process and Terminology Paper Every field has its own research process and to be a successful researcher you have to use applied research when working in the criminal justice field. There are some terms in research that apply specifically to the criminal justice field and without this knowledge it will be hard to accomplish your job effectively. The paper focuses on the different terms used, what is research and how it works in the criminal justice field. Terminology The research processed can be categorized as either basic or applied. Basic research looks at the cause, effect and nature of things.
173 Reflective Journal. Week 1: Aims of the criminal Justice system This week was essentially an introductory topic and provided me with a basic understanding of the aims and operations of the criminal justice system. I learned that there is a number of different steps within the criminal justice system and the involvement of all the parties involved such as police, judge and jury and the defence. According to John Champion the main purpose of the criminal justice system is to process and prosecute individuals who commit crimes against society and to deal out suitable punishments for these individuals. This is a pivotal part in terms of maintain the functioning of society and to ensure that people don’t go around breaking laws wherever and whenever they want.
* * * * * Research Process and Terminology * ME * CJA/334 * March 5, 2014 * Dennis Dougan * Research Process and Terminology * How will this new terminology and knowledge apply to a career in criminal justice? Essentially, understanding the terminology that is associated with a specific career path is important because of the use it gets in the line of work. In criminal justice and other social science careers, the terminology carries over and without understanding it completely, terminology can hinder research capabilities as well as understanding previous research materials. Although different criminal justice careers have their own terminology based on their line of work, the research terminology is nearly universal. How can not knowing the proper terminology affect you as you conduct criminal justice research?
Research Process and Terminology paper 08/13/2012 CJS/334 There are many research methods a professional may use in the criminal justice system when approaching an issue that needs a resolution whether it is to solve a problem or prove a point using research and evidence to get the correct results. The methods vary from using data that is precise and to the exact point or using something that is more elaborate and done on a larger scale multiple times to have a consistent result. Although there are different methods to finding an answer they all have the same basic model of problem solving in which we will be discussing. Basic Research Process Any basic research process starts off with a theory an attempt to try to explain the issue at hand, deductions leads to a hypothesis. A deduction is evidence found through simple research to narrow down a more informative form of a theory; you can say it is an official theory or scientific guess called a hypothesis, with more evidence of the issues a hypothesis is formed from a theory using deduction.
This paper includes some statistical data relevant to this particular topic. This paper not only provides information to the reader about police brutality, but it provides many different ways that we can help to solve the problem. Table of Contents: I. Introduction II. History of Police Force III.
There are many different important parts when any individual is describing the research process with in criminology as well as being familiar with the criminal justice research methods terminology as well. Having the knowledge of proper terminology can be very useful when evaluating, and analyzing research studies or data. To not understand the proper terminology and the basic information while conducting any type of research can and will affect the researchers report in which can turn into the wrong information on the study or data that needs to be collected. There are a lot of things that could go wrong if any researcher does not fully understand what needs to be understood. When researchers fully understand all terminology and are more
Throughout history society’s perception of crime and deviance has adapted to fit within the societal model of control. The continual advancement of both medical understanding and technology has also played a major role in how the legal system identifies individuals considered to be criminals. Just as society’s perception and understanding of criminal activities has changed, so too has the criminological theories that attempt to explain it. Today all theories (old and new) are studied in order to assist in the creation of new theories and help determine possibly why criminal behavior is taking place. This paper will compare criminological sub theories such as Anomie, Subculture, Biological, Social Disorganization/Chicago school, Learning, Labeling,
Research Article Analysis Maria Sanchez CJA/334 August 13, 2014 Richard Bendelewski Research Article Analysis In the criminal justice system, research holds an important role between the research and policymaking process. Proper research is critical. Research is the primary tool used to help students, criminal justice professionals, and government policy makers gain knowledge. Through research, the most-effective approaches to law enforcement and the administration of justice can help identify and formulate several crime prevention tactics. Investigations or experiments allow researchers to interpret facts and revise laws or accepted theories.
Due Process 1 Due Process Due Process 2 Due Process Introduction In my paper I will be talking about many things and those things that I will be talking about are the concepts of due process, about the adversarial system, and the process of post-arrest after a crime has been committed. Everything I talk about in my paper is very important in that it helps with the due process the adversarial system and the post-arrest procedures. You read all about these
“Three Strikes” or Habitual Offender Comprehensive Exam Whitney Polen CJ 602: Comprehensive Examination Kaplan University July 31, 2014 Dr. Patricia Drown Introduction The “three strike”/habitual offender’s legislation needs to be consistent through all of the states. What it will take to understand why some offenders feel they need to repeat this criminal activity, having legislation that will work against these repeat offenders, because not all states are on board with the three strike law. Once someone is labeled a habitual offender and they commit a crime there are increases in the penalties they can be assessed. The type of crimes these offenders commit can also be ranked in a more serious class than if a first time offender had committed it. The sentencing can also add more time when a habitual offender commits a crime.
