Overview: For this assignment, you will submit a draft of your preliminary recommendations to the mayor based on your criminal justice issue selection and analysis. These recommendations will inform the mayor and other senior leadership about a course of action to solve the issue you selected. Based entirely on your research and the analysis you provided in Milestone Two, propose a strategy to implement a solution to the issue. Think about any feedback you received in Milestone Two and incorporate that into Milestone Three as needed. Assess the strategy’s potential for success, but also identify possible hurdles and obstacles to the implementation of the recommendations you have proposed. Instructor feedback to all milestones—as well as the peer feedback you will receive on this draft in Module Eight—should be applied to your final project, due in Module Nine.
Prompt: Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
III. Recommendations A. Propose a solution to address the issue in criminal justice, justifying your proposal with your previous research. In your justification, you may consider the complexity of the solution, the possible adverse effects, and the feasibility of the solution in terms of time and resources. B. Apply criminological theory to justify how your proposed solution will address the underlying causes of the issue. C. Outline the immediate actions that will need to be taken to implement the solution, justifying the necessity and feasibility of these actions with evidence. Consider how you will create buy-in among invested parties. D. Outline the long-term actions that will need to be taken to implement the solution, justifying the necessity and feasibility of these actions with evidence. Consider how you will create buy-in among invested parties. E. Determine the types of data necessary to assess whether your solution is successful in addressing the issue, justifying your determinations. How will you measure the success of your solution?
