Criminal Law

Criminal Law


Throughout the United States, there are groups of people who are in immigrant, religious communities or indigenous people who are reluctant to trust members of law enforcement, nor wish to participate in any governmental or non-profit program even if their members would substantially benefit from participating in the design and implementation of a strategic plan. In many cases, this distrust of the criminal justice system can be due to language differences, cultural issues, or a previous history of discrimination within the criminal justice system against a group of people. The CEO of a non-profit that employs you has requested that you prepare a presentation.

Support your conclusions with references from a minimum of five (5) journal articles or publications.

Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
