Project #81810 - Please label all sections in bold

Now that Snake and his crew have been sentenced, you realize that some of these offenders will be released after incarceration, and in some cases, continue to harm the community. The research that you have conducted on the topic shows that the likelihood of recidivism is high among these offenders. As you were contemplating this, your supervisor asked you to publish an article in Corrections Today that addresses a few of the issues with recidivism within the criminal justice system. His goal is to determine where and how team members can assist in reducing recidivism at the law enforcement, courts, and correctional level. Your supervisor has assigned you a team of researchers to assist you with the publication. He would like a full report in one week.

You realize that to tackle this by the due date, you need to separate the work. Assign team members to the law enforcement, courts, and correctional sections. Consider the following, and upload the final report into the group submitted files' area.

Assignment Guidelines

Group Portion (1)

First, you will use the Small Group Discussion area to delegate the following three tasks to the members of the group. At this time, you will develop the concepts and topics to be addressed in each portion. This must be completed as a group, and participation at this stage will count toward your final individual grade.

Individual Portion

Law Enforcement:

  • Address the following in 500–750 words:
    • The police can often assist with lowering recidivism by implementing community-oriented policing (COP) efforts in high crime communities.
      • Discuss 2 COP programs that have been implemented that are effective in reducing recidivism.
      • Compare and contrast each program.
      • Pick and choose elements of each program, and develop a new program.
      • Use statistics and library research to support your response.
  • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Courts:

  • Address the following in 500–750 words:
    • The courts can assist in recidivism reduction efforts by using empirically tested assessment tools to assist the judge with making sentencing decisions.
      • Research 2 tools that are used within the court systems.
      • Evaluate each and discuss the advantages and disadvantages.
      • Specifically discuss how the risk principle applies and can reduce or increase recidivism.
      • What tool out of the two would you recommend the courts implement, and why?
      • Discuss statistics and library research to support your response.
  • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Corrections: 

  • Address the following in 500–750 words:
    • For reentry to be effective, three main components must be present. This includes the following:
      • Reliable assessments or empirically tested programs
      • Program alignment
      • Transitional programming
    • Develop 1 effective reentry program that discusses each component.
      • What assessment tool would you use?
      • Which transitional program would be most effective?
      • Discuss the importance of program alignment.
      • Choose either educational or substance abuse programs as an example.
      • How can you ensure a smooth transition from incarceration to transitional programming to parole?
  • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Group Portion (2)

Once your individual portions are developed, post them to the small Discussion Board for review. Collaborate with your peers to develop a final article to submit to your supervisor. Be sure to include the following:

  • Based from the information gathered regarding COP, determine which program should be implemented. As a team, choose 1 program, and discuss why this program is effective in reducing recidivism. Be sure to support your response using library research and statistics.
  • Based from the information gathered from the assessment portion, choose 1 assessment, and discuss how this can predict and reduce recidivism. Be sure to support your response by using library research and statistics.
  • Choose 1 reentry program that was developed in your individual portion that uses all 3 components, and discuss how these 3 components reduce recidivism. Be sure to include library research and statistics to support your response.
