This week’s lab assignment allows you to practice your APA writing skills while applying knowledge gained during the previous module on accessing research studies. For this lab assignment, you should prepare a 200-250 word paper describing one of the topics below. Feel free to describe the positives or negatives related to your topic, or to provide a basic overview — just be sure to support your statements with research and APA citations!
- wrongful conviction
- community policing
- the mental health of justice-involved individuals
- community supervision
- SWAT teams
- juvenile delinquency
In your paper, you are expected to identify and properly cite no fewer than four empirical sources. Additionally, your paper should include a references page that includes all those references you cited within the text. To adhere to APA format, your paper should be double spaced and written in size 12 Times New Roman font. You can refer to your APA manual or the CCJ4701 Research Guide to guide you. You do not need to include a title page. You will be graded on your use of APA formatting, rather than overall writing. However, proper grammar and punctuation are expected. Please upload your file as a word document.
