No directly quoted material may be used in this project paper.

Resources should be summarized or paraphrased with appropriate in-text and Resource page citations.

In this project, you will conduct one of the following: practitioner
interview, criminal court visit, police ride-along, or correctional
facility visit. NOTE: If you believe it is impossible for you to
complete any of these
experiential exercises due to circumstances beyond your control, contact
your instructor who will arrange for an alternative project.

Practitioner Interview

Your task is to interview an individual of your choice involved in
the criminal justice system: a police officer, attorney, judge,
probation officer, researcher, current or former inmate, etc. (Note:
Military personnel have the option of interviewing an equivalent person
in the military.) Should your “expert” not be listed here, contact your
instructor.

1) Provide the purpose of the paper and background information on the selected person.

2) Record the person’s views on the criminal justice system—whether
the criminal justice system works, in what ways it doesn’t work, and the
future of the criminal justice system.

3) Write the paper in a narrative format, detailing what you learned
as the result of speaking with this person. Do not submit a
“question-answer” paper.

4) Compare and contrast what your expert practitioner had to say with
relevant instructional material from this course. Additionally,
include one outside source that either supports or challenges what your
expert practitioner said.

5) When using the instructional material or other sources, properly
document and reference them, and cite all web sources. You must include
the name your practitioner.

Criminal Court Visit

Your task is to visit a criminal court session. (Note: Military
personnel have the option of visiting the military equivalent.)
Depending on when you attend, you could see a series of cases or only
one case. Write your reflections on what you observed and how the
proceedings seemed to affect the administration of justice.

1) Begin with a cover page with your name, project title, course, and date submitted.

2) Write an introductory section explaining the purpose of the paper.

3) Write your reflections on what you observed and how the proceedings seemed to affect the administration of justice.

4) Compare and contrast what you observed with relevant material.
Additionally, include one outside source that either supports or
challenges what you observed.

5) When using the text or other sources, properly document and
reference them. The name of the court you visited must be included.

Police Ride-Along

This is an observational assignment that focuses on the use of
discretion by the police officers who patrol our communities. (Note:
Military personnel may participate in a ride-along with a military
police officer.) Your task is to ride with a police officer for a few
hours and observe who is stopped and why. Who is arrested and why? How
does the use of discretion play into the patrol officer’s job?

1) Begin with a cover page with your name, project title, course, and date submitted.

2) Write an introductory section that includes the purpose of the
paper and information on the assignment of the officer, his or her
department, and the date, time, and duration of the ride-along.

3) Using a narrative format, provide the officer’s views on the use
of discretion in his or her job, then follow this with your observations
and conclusions based on his or her performance. Use the questions
above to guide your observations and questions.

4) Use research information from class materials to analyze the
information obtained. Additionally, include one outside source that
either supports or challenges what your officer said.

5) When using the text or other sources properly document and reference them. The name of your officer must be included.

Correctional Facility Visit

Your task is to visit a correctional facility (adult, juvenile,
military) and compare and contrast what you see with what the text
indicates.

1) Begin with a cover page with your name, project title, course, and
date submitted. 2) Write an introduction that provides the purpose of
the paper and information concerning the facility visited.

2) If possible, interview residents, administrators, and correctional
officers. How do they view the correctional process? What are the pros
and cons of the types of facilities we have in the United States? How
has corrections changed over the past ten years?

3) Write the information down in a narrative format.

4) Compare and contrast the information obtained with course
material. Additionally, include one outside source that either supports
or challenges what you observed.

5) When using the text or other sources properly document and
reference them. The name of the correctional facility you visited must
be included.
