Identifying your research problem is the first step in the process. Post three different problems that could form the basis of an applied research study (not a traditional research study) in criminal justice.
Traditional research is designed to expand knowledge, while applied research is intended to document a problem for the purpose of identifying solutions. Applied research is conducted in a real-world criminal justice setting (e.g., a local law enforcement agency, court, prison, community center, jail, or probation office, etc.) as a result of a problem that is currently occurring in the site and which needs research and resolution.
