Question description

Answer Question 2 of Learn by Doing in Ch. 3 in Justice Administration.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper answering the following questions. Elaborate on your answers and explain your reasoning.

A new low-income housing development in your community consists of 58 apartments and has become a popular hangout for selling drugs, drinking liquor, and intimidating residents until early morning hours. Gunshots are an occasional occurrence, with 5–10 calls for service in every 24-hour period. Criminals hide guns in the thick overgrowth around the complex, and when approached, they flee through a large open field behind the complex. An adjacent convenience store has become a problem as well, particularly as a magnet for drug dealers. A nearby drug house also contributes to the problem, and a T-shaped alley behind the store provides easy ingress and egress for buyers, both on foot and in vehicles. The lighting is poor (with people frequently shooting out street lights), and pay telephones in the store’s front are used constantly by traffickers. Street people in the area also engage in theft-, drug-, prostitution-, and vandalism-related activities. Additionally, these people sleep on private property, defecate and urinate on public streets, and engage in public drunkenness, graffiti, and littering. You are assigned to launch a problem-oriented policing (POP)/ SARA initiative at the location to effect long-term results.

What kinds of information would you collect to address problems such as drugs, prostitution, and vandalism?

What kinds of responses might be considered?

What types of assessment would you perform?

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
