Complete the first part of your Policy Project, for which you identify a current need related to a crime problem or process related to policy and identify the objective of your policy recommendation.

Current crime control practices resulted in part from research on past practices. Current research will in turn affect future practices. Your Policy Project allows you to impact future shifts in criminal justice policy or processes. For Part 1, review the Learning Resources and complete the first part of your Policy Project, for which you identify a current need related to a crime problem or process related to policy and identify the objective of your policy recommendation. You also highlight three alternatives for approaching the problem or process using a minimum of five scholarly resources. You outline the potential outcomes of your policy recommendation including the manifest outcomes (intended effects) and latent outcomes (unintended side effects). You also describe a potential means of evaluating your recommended policy. Submit by Day 7 an outline of your Policy Project as a PowerPoint presentation. Be sure to include a minimum of 12 slides, including at least one slide for each of the following: Identification of a crime problem or process issue related to a criminal justice policy Objective/intent of the policy recommendation Bibliography of a minimum of five refereed scholarly journal articles for inclusion in the review of literature Note: You are encouraged to have more sources but you are only required to have five. List of three possible alternative approaches to the crime problem or process issue and best practices (1 per slide) Explanation of manifest and latent consequences of your policy recommendation Proposed method for evaluation of the policy (e.g., observation, experiment, survey, official records)
