CRIMINAL JUSTICE

Imagine this scenario: It’s the 2nd week of the summer criminal justice internship program, and you will be researching data related to the racial and ethnic background of criminal offenders and victims to share with the interns. Understanding the racial and ethnic demographics within your own community will help the interns gain a better understand of diversity in criminal justice.

Use the “Explore data by location and data set” section of the Improving access to crime data page on the FBI’s Crime Data Explorer website, and research crime, victim, and arrest data by race in your home state. Use the following instructions to navigate to the information on that page:

  • On the “Explore by location and data set” area of the page, you will see the “Data Collections”dropdown menu. On the dropdown menu:
  • Select Crime.
  • Select your home state from the United States map below the menu.
  • Review the crime data that populates for your home state.
  • On the “Explore by location and data set” area of the page, you will see the “Data Collections” dropdown menu. On the dropdown menu:
  • Select Arrest.
  • Select your home state from the United States map below the menu.
  • Review the arrest data that populates for your home state.

Select 2 criminal justice agencies to compare for this assignment.

To research the 2 criminal justice agencies you selected:

  • Access “Criminal Victimization, 2018“ on the Bureau of Justice Statistics website data on crime victimization, and review the break down of victims by race and ethnicity.
  • Locate the 2 criminal justice agencies’ demographic breakdown data on their local websites. For example, if 1 of your selected agencies was the Mesa Police Department, you would use the Police Employee Demographics & Community Profile Summary from the City of Mesa website.
  • Select a crime type and compare victims’ and offenders’ racial and ethnic breakdown as reported by the 2 criminal justice agencies you have selected.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you:

  • Describe which 2 criminal justice agencies you selected and each agency’s staff demographic.
  • Compare racial and ethnic arrest data between the 2 local criminal justice agencies that you selected over a 10-year span.
  • What is the difference between the 2 related to the race and ethnicity of those arrested?
  • Explain how this information helps illustrate the disparity of criminal offenders and victims.
