Please Refer to Template
INSTRUCTIONS
For this assignment, you will select a peer reviewed journal article from one of the databases located in the University’s online library. The article will relate in some way to the reading material (use of force) you have reviewed for this module. After you read the article, download the Journal Article Review Template. Then, complete a Journal Article Review for the article you read. You are not reviewing the article in the sense that you are assessing it, but you are reviewing it so you can provide analysis and relate to your reader the main point and how they relate to the area of crisis intervention. The assignment is not to be too much shorter or longer than the example in the template. Ensure that you focus on the critical thinking piece of discussing implications the article has on criminal justice as this is the most important aspect of this process. How does the article’s content relate to the field of law enforcement? How does it influence policy and practice? This can be accomplished in the comments, recommendations, and conclusion sections of the assignment. Use an APA citation for the article you choose; you may provide additional reference support if you choose to, but it is not required.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.

The Room at the End of the Hall Is this situation a university or police matter?

The Room at the End of the Hall
Is this situation a university or police matter? Why? Does the fact that the young girl seems to have a “reputation” make a difference?
Are you subject to any liability issues in this case?
What do you feel would be a responsible and just outcome to this case? What additional information would you need in order to make an accurate assessment?
Super Cop
Discuss the arguments of both sides for using such investigative techniques. What would you do in this situation?
How could a criminal investigator develop informants without using money or “promises”?
In you opinion, when does a police officer have justification in “throwing back the little fish” in favor of apprehending serious offenders? Explain your answer.

• Analyze existing research to identify a problem faced by criminal justice professionals
• Evaluate the feasibility of potential solutions to a problem faced by criminal justice professionals
• Recommend evidence-informed solutions to a problem faced by criminal justice professionals
Scenario
The U.S. Department of Justice states that funding obtained through a grant can be used in the following ways:
