Present a PowerPoint slide presentation or a written report

Present a PowerPoint slide presentation or a written report (you do not have to do both) depicting your analysis of historical juvenile crime data for a specific category of crime, or criminal issue. As an alternative to PowerPoint, you can use one of the presentation applications listed here, or one approved by your instructor: MoveNote, VoiceThread, Prezi, or Google Present. Select one component of the criminal justice system (e.g., law enforcement, courts, or corrections) to focus your research.

  1. Present national juvenile data and trends based on the FBI – Uniform Crime Reports and the Bureau of Justice Statistics – Crime Type, or other comparable nationally recognized data bases, such as the U.S. Department of Education data on campus crime. Make sure you standardize your data – usually 1:1000; 1:10,000; or 1: 100,000 and incorporate the scale in a key for each chart.
  2. Present local data from a city, county, or state for three comparable locations in size from three different regions of the country (e.g., Indianapolis, Austin, and San Francisco). This information should be found on official government websites.
  3. Obtain data on at least three demographics such as: crime, education levels, gender, ethnicity, race, sexuality, education, or socio-economic data where available.
  4. Develop  questions you would like to address based on  the data you retrieved? (Note you  do not have to answer these questions  for this assignment.) What juvenile  delinquency programs or  initiatives are available to potentially address the  crime or criminal  justice issue?
  5. The Written  Report must be five pages and graphically display the statistical data  developed for three comparable cities, counties, or states. It must incorporate  national statistics for comparison. Your assessment may be in bullet or paragraph format below the graphic display.
