Short description

The purpose of the Final Paper is for students to pick a branch of the criminal justice system and then answer, for the role of a specific professional, the branch of the criminal justice system, and the criminal justice system at large, how they can use the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights to build a more just society. Example: if the student chooses law enforcement and the issue is profiling citizens to investigate potential crime, the students will research, analyze, and propose how a law enforcement officer, law enforcement agencies, and the criminal justice system at large can each use the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights to build a more just society. Choose one of the three main branches of the criminal justice system: law enforcement, the judiciary, or corrections. Your paper should address areas I, II, and III in the body of your paper. Part I: a. If you chose law enforcement: Law enforcement professionals must execute justice by upholding the law in an ethical and constitutional manner. Which parts of the Constitution of the United States are most relevant to the ethical standards of law enforcement professionals? How do law enforcement professionals ensure that they uphold the Constitution? How can law enforcement professionals use the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights to build a more just society? b. If you chose the judiciary: Professionals in the judiciary, including prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges, must execute justice by upholding the law in an ethical manner. Which parts of the Constitution of the United States are most relevant to the ethical standards of professionals in the judiciary? How do professionals in the judiciary uphold the Constitution? How can a professional in the judiciary use the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights to build a more just society? c. If you chose corrections: Corrections professionals must execute justice by upholding the law in an ethical and constitutional manner. Which parts of the Constitution of the United States are most relevant to the ethical standards of corrections professionals? How do corrections professionals ensure that they uphold the Constitution? How can corrections professionals use the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights to build a more just society? Part II: a. If you chose law enforcement: Why do people commit crime? How can law enforcement professionals use criminal theory to understand criminal actions? How can this understanding inform their practice? b. If you chose the judiciary: Why do people commit crime? How can professionals in the judiciary use criminal theory to understand criminal actions? How can this understanding inform their practice? c. If you chose corrections: Why do people commit crime? How can corrections professionals use criminal theory to understand criminal actions? How can this understanding inform their practice? Part III: a. If you chose law enforcement: What are three main issues that face law enforcement professionals on a regular basis? What are the best responses to these issues? b. If you chose the judiciary: What are the three main issues that face professionals in the judiciary on a regular basis? What are the best responses to these issues? c. If you chose corrections: What are the three main issues that face corrections professionals on a regular basis? What are the best responses to these issues? The paper must be six to eight pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least five scholarly resources (at least three of which can be found in the Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page.
