Nature of the Research Paper
Submit an 8 to 10-page paper on a technology and policing topic of your choosing. The purpose
of this paper is to examine the relationship between technology and the components of the justice system (e.g. courts, corrections, policing). In the paper discuss the technology and its application to the criminal justice system, identify and discuss both benefit and potential harm (abuses) of the use of the technology. How might this technology improve the criminal justice system, today or in the future. This paper should NOT just summarize the technology topic by way of a literature review.
This paper is assigned to students as individuals, meaning you must do the research, analysis and writing on your own, with assistance as provided in the writing lab/recitation. Try to develop your paper through an iterative process of draft, review, and revision. Use the writing center and peer review processes to assist you in the successful completion on this paper.
Below are a few of the criteria I will be using to grade the paper. Please refer to the “Research
Paper Grading Rubric” for more information and point value for each the rating criteria. You

The more clearly, logically, and strongly you make your points, using valid reasoning and
evidence, the higher your grade.
Spelling, punctuation, grammar and constructions are important elements of composition and
should not get in the way of communicating your ideas. I strongly recommend that you read
your paper out loud to yourself and have someone proof the paper to correct any errors.
Structure and Organization
Use headings to organize your paper, and make sure the discussion flows smoothly from one
topic to another. Say what you need to say as efficiently and concisely as possible, avoiding
The sections of your paper should include:
Cover page to include Title, Class, Student’s name, date and Instructor’s name
Introduction: Introduce the topic and purpose of the paper, provide a brief overview of
the technology and how it is relevant to the criminal justice system and the likely
outcomes from its use (hypotheses).
Literature Review: Use a minimum of four sources (Academic journals, professional
journals, trade journals, law reviews, articles and or government documents).
Methods: Explain the approach to data collection through document reviews and the
method used to select the literature.
Limitation: Discuss the limitations of the literature and the application science of the
behind the technology and the need for future study if applicable.
Discussion/conclusions: Explain the technology and application, how it fits with the
justice system priorities. What are the likely outcomes (+/-) of the application of the
technology? Evaluating the advantages and drawbacks of the technology under current
and future conditions. Explaining your preferred application and your rationale for that
choice. Discuss the social (moral, ethical and legal) implications as well as organizational
expectations (cost and efficiency).
List of sources cited page: APA style sources to correspond to in-text citations.
All papers should be prepared in conjunction APA format to include citations, in-quote citations
and resources. Please print single-sided, numbering the pages and stapling them together. Use 1-inch margins all the way around, single spaced and 12-point font (any font that’s easily
Use and Citation of Sources
The content of your paper should show that you used the sources provided, and the sources
should be cited appropriately (when in doubt, cite!). Be sure to use quotation marks to denote
quoted material, and cite all sources quoted and all sources you drew on to develop your ideas.
Use quotations very, very sparingly. Most of your discussion of resource material should be
paraphrased into your own words, so I know that you understand it. When I see extensive use of quotations, I assume that you’re parroting what you heard, rather than actually explaining it,
because you didn’t understand it. That will not help your grade. Failure to cite all sources you read and used, as well as citing sources you didn’t actually read and use, are both plagiarism and will result in an F on the paper and a referral to the Office of Academic Integrity.
Timeliness of Submission
All papers are due on hardcopy in class by the start of class time on the due date. If you
don’t turn it in by then, you can make a late submission by email, but there’s a 5-point-per-day
(with a day defined as a 24-hour period beginning at the start of the class on the due date)
penalty for late submissions, and no papers will be accepted more than 7 days late. You must
provide me with a hardcopy turned in during class on the due date.
If you don’t get your paper in by 7 days of the due date, you’ll get a zero for this part of your
