Discussion: Theory in Practice

You may be wondering how the behavioral and criminological theories covered in your readings this week relate to your criminal justice professional practice.

If you ascribe to the equation that a person will choose whatever meets a need or brings pleasure unless deterred, whether legal or illegal, then you may consider your working environment in a particular way. Or, you may view such a scenario differently through the perspective that the choices available in society influence the choices any individual might make.

In this Discussion, you consider how to apply theory in criminal justice practice.

To prepare:

Your Instructor will point you to a current event that relates to a criminological theory or theories. Or, your Instructor may provide the opportunity for you to contribute your own contemporary example.

By Day 3 of Week 4

Post:

  • Describe the theories that are relevant to the current event your Instructor has chosen or to the example you contributed.
  • How does the concept of personal responsibility affect your view of the role that theories play in the current event or in the example you contributed?
  • To what degree does viewing this criminal justice–related event through a criminological theory better prepare you to address crime as a current or future professional?
  • How might viewing the event through a criminological theory affect your efforts toward social change?

By Day 5 of Week 4

Respond to at least two colleagues:

  • Choose a response that is different from your own.
  • Explain how your colleague’s position has changed your perception or understanding.

Assignment: Theory and Crime Prevention

  • Explain how the classical school of criminal theory differs from the positivist school of criminal theory, ensuring an accurate description of each school within your comparison. (100–150 words)
  • Next, explain whether society’s laws are based on the classical theory, the positivist theory, or both. Provide three examples. Then, explain the degree to which society’s laws serve as sufficient deterrents for crime. (200–350 words)
  • Choose a crime that has occurred in the last 12 months in your community, state/province/region, or nation. Based on the classical school theory, explain what change could have occurred to prevent this crime from happening.
