National Gang Training Organization Slu Gang Affi
Based upon your research in this module and additional research you conduct:
Note: Must have an abstract with keywords. A sample is attached. Sources must be cited in APA 7th edition format.
1) what specific training relating to YOUTH in gangs is available to law enforcement or corrections officers? Present an overview of currently available training designed to teach law enforcement officers about youth in gangs (NOTE: G.R.E.A.T. is NOT gang officer training; it is a training for youth led by officers and should NOT be referred to). Listing names of training courses is insufficient; you must explain the contents of the training. HINT: search in government publications and state and national gang training organization web sites that list training conferences.
2) using theories and concepts examined in this module and your own research propose at least two (2) specific improvements to training police or corrections officers could use to better work with youth in gangs (more of the same training is not an improvement),
3) explain how and why the improvements you proposed in 2) above can help officers work safer and more effectively with youth drawn to or in gangs, and
4) specifically explain in one paragraph how our university’s core value of RESPECT applies to specific contents of the textbook readings for this module and include a citation and page number.
Your response should go beyond the obvious and be written at a graduate level. Your answer must be no less than 1500 words and you must use at least three authoritative sources to support your position. NOTE: the use of only three (3) authoritative sources demonstrates a minimum level of acceptable graduate level work and is not exemplary or necessarily proficient. Your text is NOT an authoritative source. All sources must be properly cited using the APA style.
YOU MUST ALSO ADD THE URL (Uniform Resource Locator) OR the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) to the end of EVERY APA reference found on the internet.
Written assignments must be scholarly, not be written in the first person tense and must follow the current American Psychological Association (APA) format and style (e.g., double-spaced, indents, etc.) and include the following: cover page, abstract, discussion, conclusion, and references. The APA format can be obtained from the Saint Leo Library website, from the purchase of APA reference materials, from the commercial purchase of software templates, or from the APA web site.
Every weekly paper must conclude with a paragraph explaining HOW the university’s core value of respect applies to the contents of the current module’s assigned textbook readings. An in-text citation that includes a page reference must be included. A general statement about respect is insufficient.
