This week you have your first group project assignment, so there will only be 1 discussion question. Respond by Thursday 1/12/17 at 11:59pm (EST).
The first article on the Week 2 Learning Resources page is “Evaluating Multi-Agency Anti-Crime Partnerships: Theory, Design and Measurement Issues“.
Your entire group project is centered around this mindset as each of you represent one facet of “crime fighting” in the scenario about the VBBC. The police can’t do it alone, nor can the courts, nor the corrections world, etc., etc. It does take a team effort to fight crime and as you might imagine, doesn’t work very effectively in many locales (politics, lack of effort, turf protection, etc., etc.)
After reading this article provide your response to the following questions:
a. What is the most significant thing you’ve learned in your review of the article provided regarding collaborative team work in criminal justice?
b. Why is this significant learning important to your role in the group?
c. How do you plan to use what you’ve learned in your group collaboration to deal with the VBBC in the role you selected?
Answer each part of the Discussion Question thoroughly and substantively, citing sources for any assertions.
You will be graded on substance, content, and quality of the response. A handful of sentences is not sufficient….
