Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
- How does research play a role in criminal justice policy?
- Choose a criminal justice policy in your state. How do the strategies used in the selected policy address crime and justice issues?
- Address gender policies specifically. Discuss gender policies and other theories investigating the biological impact on criminology. For example, should juvenile justice programs be unisex?
- Why is it important that policy efforts receive support for implementation?
Provide concrete and clear examples to explain your answers. Evaluate opposing views and adequately address your final conclusions.
