Course Description:
This basic course emphasizes programming techniques for benefiting the agency-citizen relationship. Prominence is placed on utilizing the resources of the criminal justice agencies to engage in effective conflict resolution with citizens, develop citizen and agency awareness, community crime prevention and community relations. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

The instructors educational philosophy is tied to understanding both the theorhetical application of issues in our society as well as the practical and day to day operation of law enforcement.  It is my belief that the two elements are required in order to have a better understanding of the Police and the Community.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Explain the history and evolution of American policing, while examining the development of community-oriented government.
  2. Analyze the future potential of the COPPS philosophy for the elements of the criminal justice system.
  3. Apply the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving (COPPS) and the concomitant issues of training, agency implementation, and evaluation that accompany the philosophy.


  Instructor Learning Outcomes
  1. Explain the elements of prejudice that might be amplified in law enforcement
  2. Explain the view that citizens have of law enforcement and why.
Core Assessment:

In week five there is a special writing project valued at 100 points.
 
In Week Eight the final proctored exam valued at 150 points. Required.

Grading:

Activities = 4 activity assignments x25 points = 100   22 %

Term Paper/project  = 1 x 100 points = 100 total points  22 %

Final Exam = 1 final proctored exam x 100 points = 150  points  33%

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "W".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
ONLINE NOTE: An attendance report of "P" (present) will be recorded for students who have logged in to the Online classroom at least once during each week of the term. Recording of attendance is not equivalent to participation. Participation grades will be assigned by each instructor according to the criteria in the Grading Policy section of the syllabus.
