Question description

CJ 520 10-1 Discussion Review, Reflect, and Look Ahead

In this course, we have examined public policy and theories of criminology and evidence-based practices (EBP) and how these concepts are being used and applied across the spectrum of the criminal justice system in the United States. In your initial post, reflect on the following questions using the knowledge you have gained in this course:

  1. Can our society adjust to the use of EBP as a foundation for decision making by the actors within the criminal justice system? Or is this just a “fad”?
  2. Can a country like the United States, which has more of its population incarcerated than any other nation, feel comfortable and safe incarcerating fewer people and instead using EBP to cater to the needs of specific inmates? Can society take that risk?
  3. Can law enforcement rethink policing and police based on evidence and not tradition?
  4. Can courts view “justice” with an evidence-based foundation?

When responding to your classmates’ posts, share your views on their comments and point out how you agree or disagree with their positions. If you disagree, challenge their conclusions. Further, in what ways will the positions taken by your classmates affect the future state of public policy in the United States? Cite examples from your research in the course.

of the principles are supported by almost the same weight of evidence.
Adjusting to the Use of EBP
EBP has presented the most successful and significant reform that happened to the
corrections and state sentencing practice in various countries. Initially, it used to be incorporated
in medicine only, but later the fields of mental health, education, child welfare and the criminal
justice adopted it. The EBP practice is outcome-oriented, a...
