Getting Started
Policing is influenced by technology far more than the courts and corrections in the American criminal justice system. Long gone are the days of a daily roll call as a primary method to inform urban police officers of the most recent criminal activity. In many cases, law enforcement officers in suburban and rural jurisdictions were not as fortunate to receive daily intelligence reports on recent crimes. Today, the men and women who serve as police officers are blessed with nearly real-time data on crimes reported to the police. Those police departments on the cutting edge of technology use data-driven strategies such as hot spots, Compstat, and Intelligence-led policing to combat crime. It is almost as if the police know where crimes will happen before they actually occur.
Upon successful completion of the course material, you will be able to:
Summarize data-driven policing strategies
Textbook: Criminal Justice Policy: Origins and Effectiveness
Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
Read Chapter 13 of Criminal Justice Policy: Origins and Effectiveness
Navigate to the threaded discussion and respond to the prompts:
Select one of the following Data-Driven Policing strategies used by law enforcement to identify high crime areas and those responsible for criminal acts.
Intelligence-led policing
Briefly describe the strategy.
Summarize research findings on the strategy you selected.
Identify a local police department that utilizes the strategy you picked. If you can not find a local department, find one on-line. Describe an incident where the police department was successful in operationalizing the strategy.
Cite all sources and use proper APA formatting for all in-text citations and references.
Your response to the discussion prompt is due by the end of the fourth day of the workshop.
Read all of the discussion postings and respond to at least two (2) of your classmates’ postings, as well as follow-up instructor questions directed to you, by the end of the workshop.
While students may agree with each other, each follow-up posting is expected to go beyond just agreeing. Each follow-up posting should add something original, substantive, and course-related to the discussion.
Your follow-up postings should engage classmates and move the discussion forward in intentionally scholarly ways. Some ways to do this include:
introducing related information from an appropriate source that is professional, reliable and valid
including a direct quote from the text along with your observations about the importance of the quote within the context of the discussion
including a paraphrase of the text/assigned reading (with an in-text citation that includes a page number)
challenging commonly-held thinking by introducing published research findings
examining a workshop concept from a scholarly perspective that is not addressed in the text
providing applicable illustrations from current events
pointing out connections/common ideas/themes discussed so far
The expectation is that students post their response to the prompt and follow-up postings on at least three (3) different days during the workshop to demonstrate full engagement.
Students are expected to cite all sources and use proper APA Style formatting for all in-text citations and references.
Students are expected to employ proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
