Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Evidence-Based Policing Project: Paper and Presentation

profilePanman33


Special instructions for the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Evidence-Based Policing Paper are outlined below. 

Plan

In completing a QEP experience in criminal justice, students will be able to:

  1. Prepare a well-written plan for the experience, including how to achieve objectives and a timetable and description of required resources.
  2. Regularly document progress on the experience and communicate that progress to others.
  3. When appropriate, adjust the plan to overcome barriers and/or capitalize on opportunities that arise.

Conduct

In completing a QEP experience in criminal justice, students will be able to:

  1. Delimit and describe the objectives to be accomplished.
  2. Conduct a search for published work on theory, research, and practices related to the objectives when appropriate.
  3. Collect and analyze pertinent information and data called for in the plan.

Report

In completing a QEP experience in criminal justice, students will be able to:

  1. Present the results of the experience in one or more documents that include correctly designed and executed graphics.
  2. Communicate all elements of the experience using standard English conventions (including effective sentence and paragraph structure, appropriate voice and verb tense, and suitable word choice), format and style your report in a way that is appropriate to the academic/professional field (including text citations and bibliographic references to document others’ intellectual contributions), and handle all aspects of the experience with a professional demeanor.

The written assignment will consist of describing how data was used to demonstrate how the evidence-based approach works. You could use examples such as community policing, problem-oriented policing, license plate readers (LPR), automated fingerprint information systems (AFIS), COMPSTAT, lineup procedures, or any other criminal justice or Homeland Security function that has been implemented and studied through evidence. Links are included throughout this course to provide you with articles to possibly use or to inform you about the topic. Although the paper is theory-based, I would like you to demonstrate or use an example of how data was used to prove that a criminal justice concept was helpful. This data should be collected through an extensive literature review. The use of Microsoft Excel to create charts to demonstrate descriptive statistics is required for this paper.

Your final paper should be approximately 10 pages in length and in APA format. This section will be due by Wednesday of Week 8 and has a value of 250 points. Also, students will be required to create a PowerPoint presentation, with a value of 100 points, to be posted in the Week 8 discussion area and placed into the assignment box. This presentation needs to have a video-recorded message delivering each slide. You must respond to at least two other posts in this week, providing both a positive comment and a recommended change or adjustment. A rubric for grading the paper and presentation is included for documentation.
