How is the research process and terminology in the criminal justice field related to you within your career path? How is new terminology helpful in assisting you and how is it affecting you when you are unaware? These questions often come to mind when considering taking on any research topic and doesn’t need to only apply to the criminal justice world. However that being said we will look further into the different types of terminologies that are related to the criminal justice field and just how the research process benefits those members of this field accordingly. The research process is very complex and pending the individual conducting the research it can take several steps from beginning to end.
Next in computer forensics investigation is the importance of preservation of evidence is also an important task. Any tampering and manhandling of the evidence need be prevented. Collection of the evidence and even duplicating the digital evidence is also an important part of ethical conduct. As a computer forensics investigator there are some ethical values such as integrity, accuracy and authenticity should be exercised in an ethical environment. The evidence that is produced before any court should be fairly examined and analyzed.
We must be sure that finding those answers are done ethically from the crime scene to trial. The Investigator Ethical Considerations From the moment the investigator gets a case professionalism, knowledge of laws and procedure is what has to be followed. If at any time the investigator became biased and used emotion instead of just facts of the case could be compromised. Remaining unbiased in either homicide or rape can be extremely difficult for even the most ethical investigators. Handling evidence properly is one of the most crucial points of any investigation.
Criminal justice professionals play an important role in the court system, and if they lie on accusations and evidence, the innocent become victims of the dishonesty. A second quality that is good to see in the criminal justice professions is to be objective. It is important for our law enforcement and public servants to not let their personal goals, feelings, or prejudice to get in the way of the criminal justice goals. Objectivity ensures that the professionals will make the right choices even when they have reasons that should make them choose otherwise. A simple example of this trait could be a law enforcement officer writing a ticket to someone regardless of the relationship they may or may not have.
Research Process and Terminology Paper Rachael Gammill CJA 433/Research Methods in Criminal Justice October 3, 2011 Michael Walker Research Process and Terminology Paper Terminology and the Criminal Justice System hold a key to the basic understanding of concepts and prosecution of words. What this means is simply put to be able to transcribe knowledge with his or her words to the case at hand can make the difference whether the case is won or lost. Without being able to translate in the proper terminology the point taken can be lost in a simple mathematical formula given the Hypothesis based on the Criminal Justice System. The Hypothesis will be analyzed throughout the text and will be visited from a statistical point of view in how it determines how a case is handled. Including new terminology learned from the readings begins with the basics from the chapter discussions.
Each of your aims needs to be discussed. This will involve explaining how each one will help you answer the main question. You also need to state which of the techniques you used will help you to answer each aim. For example, your pedestrian and traffic counts would help you to answer the aim ‘How busy is the town?’ Introduce and discuss the broad purpose of the study. Here you must talk about your investigation title and explain why you chose it.
The Roles of Psychologists in Law Forensic Psychology CJ233 Natasha Spears January 22, 2013 There are many roles that a psychologist can take on in the criminal justice field. Of the many roles that one can operate in, there are specific ones that pertain to criminal justice and how the psychologists helps aid in the trial, investigations, and evaluation process of solving a crime or simply the daily operations of law enforcement officers, departments and sub-divisions. The psychologist can function as the applied scientist, the basic scientist, consultant, policy evaluator and forensic evaluator. All of the mentioned roles help law enforcement agencies in one way or several others. Applied scientists apply knowledge of their studies to real life situations and problems (Green 2010).
Forensic science, and the evidence it can interpret, can be expected to make a contribution to the clarification of all three issues. Forensic evidence is present everywhere, but usually it is of little or no importance. However, at the scene of a crime the presence of forensic evidence can lead law enforcement to the offender, and often plays a crucial role in the prosecution and defence of the defendant. The types of materials considered to be of evidential value to the police and the forensic services are copious: this essay will address the predominant forms of material evidence of interest to forensic anthropologists and police officers, however, it is by no means exhaustive. Importance of evidence Forensic evidence can be essential for criminal investigations, and the successful resolution and prosecution with regard to a variety of crimes.
Criminal Justice Careers CRJ201: Introduction to Criminal Justice Dr. Michael Pozesny Cindy Terhaar 21 February 2011 Criminal Justice Careers The field of criminal justice is very broad and contains many different professions with each profession having its own interesting aspects. Anyone considering a job in the criminal justice field would benefit from researching each profession to decide which would be the best fit for them. First, it is a good idea to narrow down the choices to a few specific careers, and then it will be easier to conduct more in depth and focused research. For this paper, I chose to research three careers within the criminal justice field. I chose careers that I was most interested in and conducted research in order to find a description for each.
Research Process Criminal justice professionals may appreciate that similar to catching a criminal, there are several methods or approaches to conducting research. Methods to the research process may differ considerably in the range covered by a study, the manner in which data is collected, and the overall procedure. While this may be true about the research process, one author suggests that it is common for research methods, predominantly quantitative studies, to follow a general process. Hagan’s (2010) study found the following: 1. Problem formulation.
