Identify a problem area within the management of criminal justice agencies.  You will then develop, apply, and discuss possible solutions.




  • The paper must be between 10-12 pages; this does NOT include a title page or the references page.
  • You are to use 12-point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, one-inch margins
  • A minimum of 6 sources is required (more recommended) to be cited in APA format. At least three of these should be scholarly journal articles.  (Wikipedia does not count as a source.)
  • Be sure you paraphrase the sources and/or use minimum quotations. USE IN CITE CITATIONS FOR ANY MATERIAL THAT IS NOT A PERSONAL THOUGHT
  • This is a college level paper be sure to use proper spelling and grammar



This is how I would like the paper outline to be setup.

  • Introduction
  • Issue Identified
  • Solutions Developed
  • Solutions Applied
  • Conclusion

Please DO NOT simply call sections 2-4 what I’ve listed above; rather, relate it to the topic.  For example:

  • Introduction
  • Issues with Solitary Confinement
  • How to Solve the Problem
  • (Solutions) in Practice
  • Conclusion

You should see similarly labeled sections in the scholarly articles that you research.  Feel free to imitate (not copy) these labels..
