As we began this class on criminal justice administration, you were asked to choose a research topic relating to criminal justice administration. This topic must receive the professor’s approval before proceeding. Then you should begin your thorough research of the approved topic. The objective of the paper is to demonstrate that you understand the related class materials, have thoroughly researched your topic, and have developed an informed opinion about the topic.

Your final paper should be no less than 7-8 pages in length (double-spaced, 12-pt Times New Roman font), and include an APA Title Page (first page), an APA Abstract (second page), a reference (bibliography) page(s) (last page).
