CRJ105 – Week 9 Scenario Organized or Otherwise? Slide # 01 Slide Title Introduction Dialogue No dialogue 02 “This week is a great week to discuss ‘Organized Crime’.” Sergeant’s Office The Breakdown Looking at opened file folder 03 Sergeant: I hope you had a restful weekend because it looks like we're going to have a busy week. We have the opportunity to add to your growing foundation of knowledge on crime and criminal behavior.

The fences then put the stolen merchandise back into the community through legitimate businesses in the area for their cut of the proceeds. I know this might be a little confusing, but these offenders have been operating in the same way for quite a while. What are your thoughts? 04 Conclusion No dialogue ...
