Instructional Objectives for this activity:Research Public Servant careers in criminal justice.
For this week's Individual Work you will define public service using a credible source.
Remember your definition must have an in-text citation if it is a direct quote or if you decide to paraphrase it.
Research what types of job responsibilities public servants perform such as those performed by a local law enforcement officer in a police department, a special agent from a state level law enforcement investigative agency, and a federal law enforcement officer.
Do public servants dedicate their lives to serving the People?
Do public servants such as law enforcement officers often have to make sacrifices for their jobs, such as missing family events or holidays?
The deliverable length of your homework assignment is 400-500 words, one to two double spaced pages (does not include title page or reference page).
Remember to create in-text citations for every source you use to create a sentence for your paper.
All homework assignments must be in APA format. They must have a title page, body, and reference page.
Every in-text citation must have a corresponding reference on the reference page of your paper.
Papers must be double spaced, using 10-12 point font, with one inch margins all the way around.
Tip: Website addresses are NOT references; they are links to websites only.
A reference contains four basic parts: An Author, year, title, and publisher. A website address does not contain those parts and is, therefore, not a reference.
Please do not include only a website address as a “source” in your references list.
For citation guidelines, please refer to the table in the APA Style section of the syllabus.
Save your document with a file name that includes your_name_course code-section number_title.
For example: JaneSmith_CCJ1910-12_Week1.docx
