Graduate Criminal Justice Capstone

In last week’s Individual Project, you selected at least 2 topics that you surmised were critical issues in the modern criminal justice system. The topics were to come from issues, problems, and policies from law enforcement, corrections, or the court system. Consider that you are working toward a final capstone project position paper, and make a selection of 1 of the topics you picked.

In this assignment, you will expound on one of the topics you selected by conducting a literature review. Use the literature you developed for references to prepare an analysis of the topic, and identify required changes, revocation, or additions to the issue, problem, or policy you selected for study. Here, you will provide research analysis to defend your position on the selected topic.

Tip: The closer you can write this paper to the finished product for the capstone project, the more you will have completed toward the goal of the research. Looking ahead, you might consider if you are going to integrate this topic with a secondary topic that will be addressed in Week 3. Because you will be able to integrate the papers for Weeks 2 and 3 into the capstone project final paper, do an exceptional job and do not worry if you exceed the page requirement. It means you will have less to do in the final week when the pressure is on. The idea of your research is to direct the information you develop and analyze toward your final capstone project.

Assignment Guidelines

  • Address the following in a literature review of 1–2 pages:
    • What topic have you selected for this assignment? Explain.
    • How did you select the topic you are researching? Explain.
    • Now, take the sources from the annotated bibliography, and conduct a literature review.
  • Address the following in 1–2 pages:
    • Why is this topic important to the criminal justice system and the citizens of the United States? Explain.
    • What are the various topic issues, problems, or policies associated with your selected topic? Explain in detail.
      • What do you propose as the changes to these topic issues, problems, and policies? Explain in detail.
      • Defend your changes with articulated support from legitimate peer-reviewed reference sources. This is absolutely critical for your paper to be taken seriously.
  • Tip: The defense of your paper cannot be stressed enough. You must take care to support factual statements with valid reference material.
    • Use the criticism of the instructor in this course for this paper as a guide toward a rewrite if necessary to make your final capstone project a major success.
    • Remember not to take it personally when you are criticized in terms of modifications to the paper.
  • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Identifying and Managing Risk

In this assignment, you will compare and evaluate risk management techniques from experts in the field. Go to the Ashford University Library and find one article by Dr. James Kallman. Dr. Kallman, an expert in the field of risk management, has written many articles on managing financial risk. Find a second article in the Ashford University Library from another credible author of your choice who also provides recommendations for risk management.

Develop a three- to four-page analysis (excluding the title and reference pages), of the techniques Dr. Kallman has identified for managing risks. In this analysis, compare Dr.Kallman’s techniques to the techniques recommended in the second article you researched. Explain why you agree or disagree with each authors’ recommendations. Describe other factors you believe should be considered in risk management. The assignment should be comprehensive and include specific examples. The paper should be formatted according to APA.

As the chief officer of an emergency medical services agency

As the chief officer of an emergency medical services agency, part of your role and responsibility could be safeguarding the agency’s Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) guidelines on controlled substances.

For this assignment, you are to create a comprehensive operating policy for an emergency services agency that covers all components of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). In the introduction of your policy, identify the considerations, potential risks, and possible mitigation of legal action against emergency services organizations. These should include the penalties for CSA violations.

At a minimum, your policy must establish guidelines in the following areas:

*drug schedules,

*security requirements,

*loss or theft of controlled substances,



*disposal, and

*wasting controlled substances.

You have a wide range of areas to address and cover in your policy. Your policy must be at least two pages. References should include at least two credible sources, one of which may be your textbook. All sources used must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations and be cited per APA guidelines.

Press releases and Backgrounders

Task 1: Press releases and Backgrounders

In order to complete this task:

For this task you will learn all that you can about basic press releases and basic backgrounders. These documents are parts of a press kit that would be sent out to members of the press, news outlets, and other platforms that might share the news that the press kit writers provide for them. Watching all of the video assets and reading all of the articles will help you better understand what a press kit looks like in it’s final form.

Basic press release: This is the document in the media kit that is delivering the newsworthy event to the news outlets so they can decide whether to report on it or not. Companies promote their accomplishments and explain their mistakes using press releases.

Basic backgrounder: This is a document that gives background information on the company, organization, brand, or individual releasing the media kit to the news outlets. This helps news outlets tell a deeper story beyond just the basic newsworthy event that was being shared with the media kit.

Using what you learn from these resources and your own research, write a short press release and backgrounder announcing an event in your life that is from your past, present or possible future. Did you really save a cat in a tree when you were 10? Do you plan on winning the lotto when you are 50? Are you launching a real new business next week? Want to prepare your MCCert graduation announcement? These are great examples of what you might write a press release and backgrounder about. These documents can be either fictional or true.

Write the documents as if they are announcing this real or imagined life event to media outlets, so it can be shared on their different platforms. Compose each document separately on its own Google document. Be sure these links are set to public viewing.

Finally, on the discussion board, post two links, one to each of the two documents you create for this activtiy. There is no word count on this task but you are required to use one of the proper formats described in the links above. The goal is to practice writing a basic backgrounder and press release in preparation for next week’s project.

Task 2: Media Messaging Analysis

In order to successfully complete this written analysis:

Using what you learned about the two media campaigns, address the following prompts in the form of a written analysis in the discussion board below:

  • Compare and contrast the two media campaigns from a historicalperspective. How are they alike? How are they different?
  • How did each campaign reach its target audience? Why was this so effective at the time?
  • Based on your research, which media campaign was the most groundbreaking for its time? Why?

Please remember to use a professional writing style and try to remain as objective as possible. Your responses should be based on information you discovered while researching the articles and resources. Cite at least three sources you used while researching this material. The word count of 300-500 words must be adhered to and show that you are able to research a topic and use your findings to back up what you write.
