Solution Proposal

The focus of the capstone project is to solve a contemporary social and
criminal justice issue through the application of information from a variety of
related fields, which may include sociology, law, psychology, and ethics. In
developing a proposed solution to a modern social and criminal justice issue,
you are encouraged to use scholarly and primary sources, multimedia, and
interviews with professionals in the field (if possible) to identify and devise
a workable plan.

  1. Identify a clear thesis statement to address your
         chosen criminal and social justice issue.

  3. Propose the resolution to the social and criminal
         justice issue.

         related to correctional institutions, incarceration, and release.

         social equality and fairness for all and how this impacts your issue and

         agencies in the United States, The Patriot Act, the U.S. Homeland Security

         justice (existing or to-be-created) for agencies that may be involved in
         addressing the issue and resolution you have chosen.
