Present a PowerPoint slide presentation depicting your analysis of historical juvenile crime data for a specific category of crime, or criminal issue. Select one component of the criminal justice system (e.g., law enforcement, courts, or corrections) to focus your research. The data and charts you develop may be used in your Final Paper. For this Week Two Assignment, you will:
- 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.
- 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.
- Obtain data on at least three demographics such as: crime, education levels, gender, ethnicity, race, sexuality, education, or socio-economic data where available.
- 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?
PowerPoint Presentation must be 10 slides and graphically display the statistical data developed for three comparable cities, counties, or states. Your presentation must incorporate national statistics for comparison. Your assessment may be in bullet or paragraph format and will be provided in the notes section of the presentation.
