For this assignment you need to find a current or very recent (less than a year old) news story about a topic or issue specific to policing or law enforcement and then analyze and discuss the article based upon what you’ve learned so far in the required readings and lectures. If you are doing this correctly, you will be citing the textbook, other course readings, and/or journal articles you find yourself.
I’ve posted some news stories in the lectures, on the Front Page, and even in one Announcement, so you understand what I mean by a topic or issue specific to policing. You can search Google News or Yahoo News or a similar source to find numerous available articles.
The paper should follow the guidelines for written assignments covered in the syllabus, including font, margins, APA format, etc. as well as the guidelines specified in the rubric. This assignment should be between 2-4 pages, double-spaced.
Do not spend more than 1-2 paragraphs describing the news story. The vast majority of your paper should be focused on analysis and discussion. Instead, provide me with a citation so that I can find the article, or if possible, a web link.
