    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Nonreactive Research

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman and their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  The subject matter for this seminar is Nonreactive Research and this type of research is widely used in crime and justice studies. The main way we do this research is by taking advantage of the huge amounts of data, in many forms, we continue accumulating. The authors of our reference text speak of federal crime statistics (UCR, NCVS), the, "General Social Survey, police and prison records, video-surveillance data, existing self-report data, incarceration trends, drug use statistics, documents concerning prisoners released from death row, and court proceedings documents" as well as, "media articles, Web sites, television shows, roadside memorials, hospital records, census reports, and economic data " (Kraska & Neuman, 2012, p. 206). This seminar explains how to use all the data which your department already has collected for you.

    Dog Company The Boys of Pointe du Hoc

    in Military

    It is said that the right man in the right place at the right time can make the difference between victory and defeat. Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc--the Rangers Who Accomplished D-Day's Toughest Mission and Led the Way across Europe, is the dramatic story of sixty-eight soldiers of the U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger Battalion, D Company—Dog Company—who made that difference, time and again.   From D-Day, when German guns atop Pointe du Hoc threatened the Allied landings and the men of Dog Company scaled the ninety-foot cliffs to destroy them; to the thickly forested slopes of Hill 400, in Germany’s Hürtgen Forest, where the Rangers launched a desperate bayonet charge across an open field, captured the crucial hill, and held it against all odds. In each battle, the men of Dog Company made the difference.   Dog Company is their unforgettable story—thoroughly researched and vividly told by acclaimed combat historian Patrick K. O’Donnell—a story of extraordinary bravery, courage, and determination. America had many heroes in World War II, but few can say that, but for them, the course of the war may have been very different. The right men, in the right place, at the right time—Dog Company.   In this segment of “The Organic View”, host, June Stoyer will talk to Patrick O'Donnell who is a military historian and the award-winning author of seven books, including the bestseller and William E. Colby Award winner Beyond Valor, Give Me Tomorrow, and We Were One, the highly acclaimed account of the Battle of Fallujah.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Experimental and Quasi-Experimental

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman and their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  Experiments are common and credible for developing and testing theory. Crime and justice research is used to make justice "smarter" these days and more effective so we better know how to solve today's problems. We call this "applied research". Experiments help to both evaluate criminal justice and crime control practices as well as develop causal laws. This seminar bridges from talking about experiments and their usefulness to a discussion about Kraska and Neuman's "Eight Principles for Assessing Feasibility of Crime and Justice Experiments" so you can better figure out if you are prepared enough to do any research at all given your circumstances and the tools available.

Talk to almost anyone, and they'll tell you a ghost story or two. First, they'll usually say they're skeptical. But it's usually followed up by the words, "well, there was this one time..."
