In a 4–6-page essay, discuss at least 3 policies listed in the attached assignment, and discuss which of the theories listed in the attachment that might have influenced these policies.

Some criminal justice students have questioned the need to learn about criminological theory because it is not related to the real  world, or at least the field of criminal justice. Many students and professionals believe that the fast pace of policing neighborhoods  and the practice of investigation is a science of practicality, not of theory.  In a 4–6-page essay, discuss at least 3 policies below, and discuss which of the theories listed below might have influenced these  policies. The policies and theories are not listed in any particular order, and any policy could be related to any of the theories on the  list. You may also use other polices not listed, as long as you relate these policies to the ideas found in the theories column. As you  answer each question, you must provide support or evidence that will enhance and empirically prove your answers. Academic  criminal justice articles or real-life criminal justice findings that are found in journals or other academic sources must be used in  supporting your answers. Please use APA format for all cited sources, including your reference page.
