    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Quantitative Data Analysis

    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.).  This seminar focuses on a mainstay of criminal justice research - quantitative data analysis. We all work with numbers. If you want to work with research in your local departments/agencies your first research is bound to be quantitative. This seminar will include introductions to such concepts as scattergrams, pie charts, correlations, multiple regressions, and tables of number. These are largely visual so you are going to have to go look these up in order to really appreciate the content here about them.

    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.

    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.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Quantitative and Qualitative Design

    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.).  This seminar introduces the listener to a very deep discussion about sampling. Sampling variables discussed include: Probability Sampling, Random Sampling, Systematic Sampling, Stratified Sampling, Cluster Sampling, Sampling Size, Nonprobability Sampling, Haphazard Sampling, Purposive Sampling, Snowball Sampling, Sequential Sampling, and Theoretical Sampling. Also discussed are hidden populations and mixed sampling approaches. Then we head into Qualitative and Quantitative research and the differences between hard and soft data. Reliability, validity, bricolage, interpretation (first, second, and third-order), and document analysis follow. Other topics will be discussed as time allows.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Ethical Considerations

    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.).  Thinking about your application of ethics in your research project is critical to your completing enough preparation to be successful. Ethical conduct ensures that the "knowledge–power dynamic" which we understand so well in public safety generates knowledge only from credible research. As a criminal justice researcher you have a professional and ethical obligation to create new knowledge that is useful, accurate, credible, and that can be generalized across a wide population. The purpose of this seminar is to ensure you understand and appreciate the ethical implications of your research as well as the potential adverse impacts that research can have on others.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Theory and Philosophy

    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 in their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  This first seminar helps answer some basic questions about knowledge, how it is constructed and what it has to do with criminal justice studies. We have questions we ask every day, departments across the country need research done, but who is to say what research needs to be done and how it is to be done to satisfy the needs of that Chief, Warden, Regional Administrator, or other agency manager who needs to make serious and accurate decisions based on your work? This seminar introduces the concepts of epistemology, positivist social science, interpretive social science, and critical social science. Then we go into the parts of a theory and variables in research before expanding to the development of a theory.  The latter half of the seminar reviews Grounded Theory, Temporal Order, Association, Types of Variables, etc. and then we finish up with Hypothesis and errors in reasoning.

    Anita Meyer: Beyond the Bible Code

    in News

    About Beyond the Bible Code


    Both the designed patterns of the Hebrew letters and The Torah Codes describe a real phenomenon by illustrating intelligent and divine design. There is statistical evidence that the scriptures are of a divinely inspired, and supernatural, origin with a God's-eye-view of history, imbibed with the past, present and future. Moreover, including the schematics of a higher science, a wormhole could well be a porthole leading us directly to commune with God.


    Author Anita Meyer was born on June 29th 1967 in Augsburg Bavaria Germany on an American Army base. She graduated from Maine East High School in Park Ridge Illinois. Has a degree in Criminology. Off the beaten path, Anita is a religious procurement specialist who thoroughly engages in finding strong evidences for God's existence. She currently resides in Kenosha Wisconsin, is married and has two children.

    Author Anita Meyer has written these books to bridge the gap between both science and religion and to share God's truth with the world.
