A1: Research and develop a Focus Paper that is designed as a Research Paper on a Focused Topic Area.
The Constitution of the United States provides protection for the citizenry of the United States. For those in the criminal justice system we recognize the need to treat the citizenry with the utmost of these protections. However, for social administration of justice, we must view the topic from the lens of the criminal justice employee and administrator. Discuss the comparison and contrast of these rights as compared against those enjoyed by the citizenry. Please choose ONE of the Topic areas to research and write your paper on: Topic 1: Do those who serve in criminal justice administrative and operational roles POSSESS more, equal, or fewer social justice rights than the general population they serve or
Topic 2: Do those who serve in criminal justice administrative and operational roles EXERCISE more, equal, or fewer social justice rights than the general population they serve. This must be submitted as a Word document.
Focus papers should contain 1250 – 1500 words, excluding references, cover page, and appendices. They must include a minimum of 5 scholarly references/sources and be written in APA 7th edition format.
