Our final reading and lecture is on the topic of policy analysis. For the criminal justice world, this is the study of what works. We are much more interested in finding out what does work over theorizing about concepts. Is what we are doing reducing crime rates, recidivism rates, affecting public perceptions about the effectiveness of police, improving officer safety, use of technology (such as body cameras or drones,) and a myriad of other things. For this final discussion question, select an area of criminal justice policy that is of interest to you, then discuss how the material you have learned in this course could be used to demonstrate or evaluate the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of that particular policy.
