Unit VII Article Review
Community Policing & Gang Prevention
The findings from criminal justice research help us to understand how theories and concepts can be applied to real-world phenomena. One way to make such applications is to review research that explores one or more key concepts discussed in this unit.
For this article review, you will need to examine community policing partnerships regarding gang control or prevention.
PLEASE DO NOT PLAGIARISE ANYTHING IN THE WRITING OF THIS PAPER!!!!!!!
The article review will need to include the following components:
• a brief discussion of the research study’s focus (e.g., purpose for conducting research, research questions and/or hypotheses, methodology);
• a brief summarization of the research study’s key findings (e.g., hypotheses were or were not supported; additional research is needed in a specific area); and
• a brief discussion of the applicability of the research study’s key findings to current and future practices in the field of criminal justice. You may use your direct experience, information from the textbook, and/or information from additional sources to complete this component of the article review.
Each section of your article review must be clearly labeled using the following section headings:
• Research Focus,
• Research Findings, and
• Research Applications.
Note: EACH COMPONENT OF THE ARTICLE REVIEW SHOULD BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS. No more than 20% of your article review should be a direct quote. Thus, you will need to read the article and rewrite the study’s focus (component 1) and key findings (component 2) in your own words. You will have to use your intellectual creativity to brainstorm how the study’s key findings can be applied to practices in the field of criminal justice (component 3). Therefore, there should be very little need to use direct quotes in your article review.
Your article review should be a minimum of one double-space page.
Be sure to cite, in APA format, any source used to influence your response, Therefore, your reference list should at least include a citation of the article you used to prepare the article review.
