Identifying and Gathering Relevant Data


Select at least ten scholarly articles from the Argosy  University online library resources, Google Scholar, or other databases  using key words related to the criminal behavior for which you want to  develop a prevention plan.

You should select peer-reviewed journals from the Argosy  University online library resources and full-text articles on Google  Scholar.

Based on the articles, identify common denominator  descriptions of those perpetrating the particular criminal behavior you  are working with.

Next, locate the crime rate statistics in your community for the particular criminal behavior you have chosen using the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) Uniform Crime Reports (UCR).

Create the list of selected scholarly articles, along  with an outline of the common descriptors of those involved in the  criminal behavior and a specific fact outline from the FBI report in a  Microsoft Word document. All written assignments and responses should  follow APA rules for attributing sources.
