CJ 4840 - Applied Criminology

This course covers the theories, principles, techniques, materials, and methods commonly employed in the disciplines of criminology and criminal justice. The particular emphasis is on examining empirical bases for decision-making through examination of existing research and contributions of criminology and other social sciences to identifying ‘best practices’ for law enforcement operations. Students are expected to complete a class project based on the course material, applying this material to issues they confront in their own departments. Both oral and written products reflecting these projects are required.
