Description of incident: Outline your incident (who/what/when/where); describe what factually happened. This should include a brief description of the “normal” activity of the location-what happens there on a day-to-day basis? (approx. 1 page)
Why did this occur? motivation(s) of the suspect(s)-include any pertinent background and goals of action taken by the offender. (approx. 1 page)
Method(s) used by the offender(s) to effect their intended outcome.Explain any groundwork the suspect laid, and give an accounting of all the tools they used (like weapons, vehicles, other people, social media, etc) (approx. 1 page)
Were there any controls in place to detect/prevent/intervene during the incident? If so, describe. Did they work as intended? Were they adequate? (approx. 1-2 pages)
Now picture yourself as the person in charge of the above workplace & employees. Explain the steps you will be taking to prevent, detect, intervene during and recover from an incident, if a similar (or the same) incident were to happen again at a similar (or the same) location. To put it another way; what will be done differently/better next time? (approx. 3-4 pages)
*Be sure to apply concepts learned during this course!I want you to impress me, take something from every class this semester, and apply it to your topic in your paper.
* I don’t expect (or want) detailed descriptions of evacuation or tactical plans, nor episodes of CSI or Dr. Phil to be typed out. Think “common sense & practicality” when formulating your analysis and response and apply as many concepts (thoroughly) as you can.
You must include a cover page which has your topic, name, professor’s name, date, and the labeled “CJUS 414 Final Paper”. You must also include a “References” page in which you cite at least five (5) different, credible sources.Respectable and varied sources make respectable papers.Wikipedia is not respectable.
This means your paper will be at least seven (7) pages in length in order to possibly cover enough material to get an “A”.There is no max, but try not to go longer than 10 pages. This does not include the cover page and bibliography. 12-point font, one inch/fully justified margins, double spaced, 3-5 sentence paragraphs, numbered pages. Content is king; however improper grammar, spelling and punctuation will be penalized. Words (and wording) matter!
This assignment is to be considered FORMAL ACADEMIC WRITING.Accordingly, personal opinion(s), beliefs, baseless speculation/conjecture, and overt emotionality shall be omitted.
