Question 1-Bertillon’s anthropometry system required measurements of various body parts, including the length of arms, sitting height, the head, left foot, left middle finger, left forearm, and right ear. Use a tape measure or ruler to measure some of these body parts and include them in your post. (Note: You can watch the video above and have a partner help you if available. If not, estimate the measurements the best you can, especially the head that requires calipers.)
Question 2-take a look at the fingerprint types power point and then at your fingerprints. What pattern type(s) do you see? (Note: If you cannot see your fingerprints, you can put some oil, butter, or greasy lotion on your hands and then press your fingers onto a drinking glass or glass surface. You should then be able to view your fingerprints on this surface.)

Ben is a high school senior who has struggled in school throughout much of his academic career. A combination of low grades and delinquent friends seemed to put him on a path to delinquency early in life. In grade school, he was doing well and had aspirations of becoming a police officer. As he went through grade school was less stable – his father was in and out of jail throughout Ben’s adolescence, and when he was home, he was not supportive of Ben’s education and engaged in drinking and verbal abuse.
<
<
Beginning in seventh grade, Ben began hanging out with a tough crowd. They frequently shoplifted and smoked marijuana. As the years went by, they progressed to prescription pills as well as crack and meth. In order to pay for his new drug habit, Ben has broken into many of the homes of his former middle-school friends. When asked about why he committed the robberies, he states the families he stole from did not need the money or the items he stole from them. They have the money to replace the items that had been taken.
<
<
The teachers at Ben’s school are worried that this once bright and optimistic child will never get back on the right path and are afraid that his delinquent friends and troubled family will impede his academic career.
<
<
Provide an analysis of this case study by addressing the following questions:
<
<
Provide two theories of delinquency that can be applied to explain Ben’s trajectory into delinquency. In your paper, be sure to include a brief discussion of each theory you have chosen.
<
In what way(s) can labeling theory be applied to Ben’s story?
<
What methods might Ben’s teachers use to help turn him around? Provide basis and support for your suggestions from the theories introduced in this module and in Chapter 4 of your text.
<
Your paper must meet the following requirements:
<
<
Your written paper should be 2-3 pages in length not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include.
<
Use terms, evidence, and concepts from class readings.
<
Cite at least three scholarly sources for this assignment. Scholarly resources include: peer-reviewed journal articles, books, the class textbook, or reports/documents from the government (.gov sites). A scholarly source does not include general sources from the internet (.com, .org, .edu, and .net sites are not scholarly). Scholarly resources should be current (no older than five years). If the class textbook is used as a source, then two other scholarly sources must be used.

Final Research Project &lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt;Based on the Pro

Final Research Project
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Based on the Problem-Oriented Policing, identify a real life or hypothetical problem in your community that can be addressed through a problem-solving model or method.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;The problem-solving project can be viewed from your point of view as a community member or from a Police Officer's perspective (your choice).
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;You may choose and utilize one of the below Problem-Solving Model:
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;The S.A.R.A model: A Four-State Problem-Solving Process to identify the problem and come up with an effective and reasonable solution.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Scanning, Analysis, Response, Assessment
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;The LAPD has historically used the problem-solving model “SARA” to address problems in the community.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;The C.A.P.R.A model, was used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) that focuses on:
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Clients, Acquiring/Analyzing Information, Partnership, Response and Assessment of Action
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Training next generation, the LAPD has adopted the “values-infused” model – CAPRA (Clients, Acquiring &amp; Analyzing Information, Partnerships, Response, and Assessment)— that integrates critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;This emphasizes that the client or community is at the center of every situation trying to be resolved and to working closely with them as partners in the overarching public safety mission.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Officers should consider the two types of clients in their problem solving:
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Direct Clients: Those who you interact with directly at various points during service delivery or in the work team/unit.
&lt;br /&gt;Indirect Clients: Those not directly involved in an incident but who have an interest in its outcome.
&lt;br /&gt;Considering both client types will ensure the Department provides quality service, protection, enforcement, and prevention in partnership to obtain collective efficacy.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Final grade will be based on:
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Research Effort (PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION and SOLUTION)
&lt;br /&gt;Content
&lt;br /&gt;Analysis by using one of the models
&lt;br /&gt;Writing Mechanics
&lt;br /&gt;What factors and conditions were unique to your RESEARCH?
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;What specific techniques and resources are available to assist you in supporting and building better and safer community?
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;What technique or resource were implemented in your solution in order to effectively combat your community problem?
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Your research must identify your STAKEHOLDERS.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Your research must provide a plausible and realistic solution to the problem (Conflict).
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Based on your research analysis, what would be the impact of your solution in your community?
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;Your solution must be aligned with the law.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;This assignment requires outside research!
&lt;br /&gt;Use only credible sources, state in your paper, why the source was credible.
&lt;br /&gt;This assignment is limited to 7 pages including the title and reference page.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;This requires a concise writing style that is comprehensive yet free of “clutter,” e.g., no excess wordage or unnecessary expression. Use the commonly accepted format (APA, MLA or Chicago) for college writing assignments, cite all your sources, including on-line references.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;The best papers will demonstrate the students understanding about Police-Community Relations and will provide critical analysis of the factors that lead to success or failure.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;NOTE: Wikipedia, similar open-source reference sites and other pop culture websites such as Yahoo answers, Answers.com etc. cannot be used as an assignment source for this class.
&lt;br /&gt;Here are some reasons:
&lt;br /&gt;- I have found information that is contradictory within the same article on occasion.
&lt;br /&gt;- Students often use, for example, Wikipedia blindly with no regard for content.
&lt;br /&gt;- Wikipedia is an open source. Anybody can edit information for any reason, purpose, or agenda
&lt;br /&gt;- Most information is authorless and cannot be verified.
&lt;br /&gt;- Some of the information has been found to be wrong and/or misleading.
&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;br /&gt;HINT: You can, however, use these sources as a starting point as they will usually cite the original source that you can then check for yourself.

Victim advocates seek to provide accurate information about the criminal justice

Victim advocates seek to provide accurate information about the criminal justice process to victims and detail the victim’s rights from the charging of a crime through conclusion of the criminal case. Your understanding of the criminal justice process and your ability to convey this information in meaningful ways will benefit both the victim and the prosecution. The job of victim advocate requires you not to just provide good news to the victim but also to appropriately explain the protections the criminal justice system provides for the defendant in the case. Obviously, this can be a difficult task, but you must convey balanced information about how the system benefits the victim and the constitutional protections provided to the defendant.
<
<
Throughout this course you have examined the process of a criminal case and learned about constitutional protections for individuals. This paper will require you to comprehensively explain all that you have learned thus far.
<
<
Scenario: You have just begun your first job in the criminal justice system as a victim’s advocate for the prosecutor’s office at your local county. Review the What Is a Victim Advocate? job description for more information.
<
<
You have been assigned Virginia Sufferer as your first person to guide through the criminal justice process from beginning through trial. She was the victim of an alleged burglary at her place of residence. Defendant Accused was arrested by warrant after Sufferer picked him out of a line up after seeing him leaving her apartment on the day of the burglary. Accused was known to the police for his prior arrests and convictions for the sale of narcotics. Police searched his home when they served the arrest warrant and found two pieces of jewelry that belonged to Sufferer. Accused was interrogated at the police station and did not admit to the crime. When questioning began at the police station, Accused asked to speak to a lawyer, but no attorney was provided.
<
<
You will present a paper that details the entire criminal justice process for a felony criminal charge for Ms. Sufferer’s benefit to understand what to expect as her case moves through the system. Make sure that you explain how the system seeks to balance effectiveness of the system, in your opinion, and provide her with your opinions on how the system can be improved.
<
<

<
<
In your paper,
<
<
Summarize all of the steps between arrest, pre-trial, trial, and appeals for the victim.
<
Explain to Ms. Sufferer the contingencies for each stage of the proceedings.
<
Address all possible outcomes.
<
Analyze the constitutional protections that Accused’s lawyer may be able to use as a defense at each stage of the proceeding.
<
Evaluate for the victim both the effectiveness of the system in dealing with criminal prosecutions
<
Express your ideas for changes or improvements to the system.
<
Provide Ms. Sufferer your recommendations to make the system fairer for all those involved.
