CJ 212 Purdue University Proposal to Conduct a Crime Prevention Program PPT


you will create a proposal for a new crime prevention program that targets juveniles and determine how you will evaluate its effectiveness.

For your proposal, research three programs currently being utilized in communities and in the K–12 school system, national, state, or local programs.

NOTE: If you already have research on these types of programs, you can use it in your proposal.

In the analysis of how your program will deter juvenile delinquency, you will want to use data from your three comparison programs to support your new program. For example, how many juveniles are enrolled in the program? In order to deliver the best programming possible for juveniles in the K–12 school system, calculate the optimal ratio of staff to the target population, based on the average ratio of the comparison programs.

Your analysis should specifically identify the data source and include a summary of the data.

In addition, you will want to specifically address how the data were used to inform your thinking on the development of your new program (i.e., how you used the data to solve a real-world problem).

Create a 13- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation to include the following:

  • Who is your target population, what are your goals, and how will your program be implemented?
  • Explain your program, detailing the elements of it and why it will be effective.
  • Describe how the program’s effectiveness will be analyzed and how the objectives will be evaluated.
  • Specify how deterrence will be measured and what will be considered effective deterrence.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
