DB 1 Regardless of the philosophical approach one embraces with regard to the criminal justice system (due process vs. crime control, consensus or conflict model, or individual rights vs. public order), the police, courts, and correctional components must operate within a multicultural society; that includes non-conventional racial and gender roles. Beginning with the material conveyed in the assigned reading and presentation,

*discuss how multiculturalism and diversity impact the application of those philosophical approaches by the criminal justice groups (police, courts, and correctional) charged with achieving justice. Expand upon the provided material with scholarly research to support your position. Finally, integrate within your discussion the impact of a Judeo-Christian viewpoint on the implementation of criminal justice to principles inside and outside of the organization.

DB 2 The mission of policing was described by the author as covering 6 key areas: (1) enforcing the law, (2) apprehending offenders, (3) preventing crime, (4) predicting crime, (5) preserving the peace, and (6) providing services. With the advent of various forms of terrorism and transnational crime, the police mission has expanded beyond the traditional borders of tangible burglaries and domestic disputes. Beginning with the material conveyed in the assigned reading and presentation, select 2 scholarly articles from the university criminal justice databases, and integrate those resources to discuss the use of intelligence-led policing (ILP) and its application through the development of fusion centers to equip law enforcement for their expanded mission. Finally, integrate within your discussion the impact of a Judeo-Christian viewpoint on ILP and the development of fusion centers.

DB3 Those charged with sentencing embrace a number of philosophies to satisfy the seemingly conflicting goals of retribution, incapacitation, deterrence, rehabilitation, and restoration. The means to accomplish those tasks have traditionally been comprised of fines, probation, imprisonment, and death. To adapt to the financial, social, and international pressures, the criminal justice system has experimented with mandatory, indeterminate, and structured sentencing. However, each offender-based alternative must be viewed with in the light of its impact on recidivism, the victims, and society at-large. Beginning with the material conveyed in the assigned reading and presentation, select 2 scholarly articles from the university criminal justice databases, and integrate those resources to discuss the practical implications of alternative and innovative sentencing options. Finally, integrate within your discussion the impact of a Judeo-Christian viewpoint on the viability of such new sentencing options.

DB4 the juvenile justice system covers a number of categories of children: delinquent, undisciplined, dependent, neglected, abused, and status offender. As a result, the law has sought to adapt the rights, institutions, and treatment options available to an increasingly diverse juvenile population – gangs, substance abuse, mental health concerns, sexual orientation, cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying, sexual-oriented texting, and school violence.

Beginning with the material conveyed in the assigned reading and presentation, select 2 scholarly articles from the university criminal justice databases, and integrate those resources to discuss the perceived impacts and challenges facing the juvenile justice system as it seeks to respond to a perceived need to pursue the “adultification” of juvenile criminal behavior. Finally, integrate within your discussion the impact of a Judeo-Christian viewpoint for treating juvenile criminals as adults.
