Overview: Building on the discussion of criminal justice policy-makers in Module Six, for this assignment due in Module Seven, you will write a brief, 1-page memorandum to your supervisor regarding the need to make changes to a departmental policy in your criminal justice agency. You will also describe how these changes will affect the different actors involved in the policy-making process. This memorandum will help inform policy recommendations that you will be making in your Milestone Three assignment and in your final project, because you will be outlining changes to a departmental policy based on the public policy issue you have previously identified. Which is Race, National Origin and Ethnicity

5. Conclusion: Provide a conclusion based on the research you have done and the details you have gathered.
