To that end, you will write a policy analysis paper that will discuss a problem within the Criminal Justice field and implications to address the problem.
o Early in the course, identify a problem or issue in the field of Criminal Justice which interests you. Note -papers previously used in another class are not allowed. o Carefully review the materials in the Research and Writing Resources Module in Canvas.

At least half of the paper should focus on your analysis of those issues providing your recommendations for the way forward. This may be in the form of very tangible and specific recommendations, or actions that need to be taken to further flesh out the issue(s), or both.
o The paper will be required to have a minimum of five(5) academic peer-reviewed sources.
