Explain a criminal justice issue within the system of corrections relevant to at least one of the four general principles.

There are four general principles of effective intervention that have become organizing concepts of community corrections. They have stimulated what has become known as the “what works” movement. Prepare a digital slide presentation outlining the four general principles of the “what works” movement. For this assignment, you will prepare five digital slides that consider perspectives on the potential merits and limitations associated with each of the four general principles. It is important to develop the ability to frame an approach to content in a digital slide format. A digital slide format provides an opportunity to succinctly summarize points and to organize your thoughts in a compelling and coherent manner. Prior to beginning work on this assignment, please complete the assigned readings in the Wright (2012) text, Contemporary Prison Overcrowding: Short-Term Fixes to a Perpetual Problem (Pitts et al., 2014) and Assessing the Effectiveness of Correctional Sanctions (Cochran et al., 2014). In addition, please review the website Bureau of Justice Statistics (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Also, please consider the recommended website resources.

In your slide presentation, using at least two scholarly, peer-reviewed, or credible sources in addition to the course text

  • Analyze critical perspectives on the merits and drawbacks of each of the four general principles.
  • Interpret constitutional principles for social and criminal justice that relate to at least one of the four general principles.

Unit 1 Practice Activity

Complete the Unit 1 Assignment: What happened to the Lindbergh baby?

Resource: Chapter 1 of your text.

The ability to think critically is a key skill for success in the criminal justice field. It means not taking what you heard or read at face value, but using your critical thinking faculties to weigh up the evidence and consider the implications and conclusions of the situation.

The criminal justice system encompasses three main components: Police, courts, and corrections. These three components interrelate in several ways. First, they interact in the processing of specific cases. For example, police officers’ conduct investigations and make arrests. Offenders must then be processed by the court system, but police officers play a critical role in this process, as they might confer with prosecutors or testify at motion hearings or trials. If an offender is convicted, prosecutors might recommend the sentence and judges may consider prison overcrowding issues when deciding the final sentence.

Second, these components interact at a policy level. The formal and informal decision-making processes of each component can impact the strategies and priorities of the other components. Third, the components are increasingly working together in various ways to respond to specific types of crimes. The interactions between components often result in conflict. Each component focuses on achieving different goals, and the priorities of the different components may not be consistent.

Review the details of the Lindbergh Baby Case.

Write a 700–1,050 word analysis of the Lindbergh case. Include the following components in your discussion:

  • Discuss how the three components, police, courts, and corrections, apply to this case.
  • Discuss first appearance, preliminary hearing, and arraignment as they apply to the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.
  • Discuss adjudication as it applies to the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.
  • Discuss sentencing as it applies to the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.
  • Discuss corrections as it applies to the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.
