Please check to see the attachment to complete this assignment (Rubric and Writing Check List)-.
For this Performance Task, you will design a research proposal for a crime issue affecting your community or region (South Region of United States). Although you do not need to carry out the research proposal, it should be an implementable plan. The goal of this exercise is to allow you to look at criminal justice issues from the point of view of a researcher, examining the different facets of an issue that need to be taken into account to conduct research. This competency should expand your awareness of theories, designs, and methods that can be used to conduct criminal justice research, should you continue your studies at the doctoral level or be required to conduct research in your career.
An additional purpose of this competency is to deliver an executive summary of your research proposal. You will place yourself in the shoes of a criminal justice professional who must win buy-in for your research proposal by justifying its importance to a superior or another decision-making stakeholder. Your executive summary should be a synthesis of your proposal that allows your audience to quickly understand its purpose and goals.
