About this Unit
In this unit, students will consider some of the contemporary issues faced by the criminal justice system and the possible solutions to these real world problems. Using knowledge and skills drawn from their experience and study in their degree, students will be required to explore a critical policing or criminal justice issue and develop potential solutions. The unit aims to develop skills in problem analysis and managing the practical constraints faced by social scientists working in applied criminal justice and policing settings. Students will identify a critical issue (such as policing domestic violence, police engagement with CALD youth, criminal justice responses to cybercrimes), which they will explore individually and in groups throughout the semester. Students will become familiar with and learn to apply the policy/practice development cycle to identify critical issues, survey existing research and practices, develop alternative strategies for resolving the identified problem, and evaluating the expected outcomes.
