Introduction to Criminal Justice CJ 1001 Guidelines for Field Observation General This course requires a “field observation,” which involves spending time observing criminal  justice in action. This will give you a new perspective on some aspect of criminal justice that and  will enable you to compare your observation with what you have learned in the course.  The field  observation will be described in a thoughtful, well written and organized 5-to-7 page paper in  which you will discuss what you observed and the questions or problems that were raised as a  result of the observation.   The deadline for submission of your report is 11/23/10.  The topic/object of your observation must be approved in advance (no later than 9/23/10),  and must involve some aspect of criminal justice that occurs this semester (as part of the  course), not something that happened in the recent past, as interesting as that may be.  Making arrangements for the observation, visiting a site, and gathering information are  entirely your responsibility.  The site cannot be an agency where you work or have worked,  or where you are doing an internship or have done an internship. (See below for more DO  NOTs.)  You are observing criminal justice functions that any citizen could (because of their  public nature), yet you will conduct repeated observations, so that you can begin to see the  function you have picked in some depth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
