For this first article review, you will review a peer-reviewed article that examines community policing partnerships regarding gang control or prevention
For the second article review, you will review an article that examines the connection of community policing and CPTED (crime prevention through environmental design) to maintaining safe neighborhoods and the related challenges. Also, identify if any components of a Weed and Seed program are present.
Each article review will need to include the following components:
· A brief discussion of the research study’s focus (e.g., purpose for conducting research, research questions and/or hypotheses, methodology);
· a brief summarization of the research study’s key findings (e.g., hypotheses were or were not supported; additional research is needed in a specific area);
· and a brief discussion of the applicability of the research study’s key findings to current and future practices in the field of criminal justice. You may use your direct experience, information from the textbook, and/or information from additional sources to complete this component of the article review.
Each section of your article review must be clearly labeled using the following section headings:
· Research Focus,
· Research Findings, and
· Research Applications
Note: Each component of the article review should be in your own words. No more than 20% of your article review should be a direct quote. Thus, you will need to read the article and rewrite the study’s focus (component 1) and key findings (component 2) in your own words. You will have to use your intellectual creativity to brainstorm how the study’s key findings can be applied to practices in the field of criminal justice (component 3). Therefore, there should be very little need to use direct quotes in your article review. Your article review should be a minimum of one double-spaced page. Be sure to cite, in APA format, any source used to influence your response. Therefore, your reference list should at least include a citation of the article you used to prepare the article review
