Three suggestions for improving criminal justice research include:
1) relaying the research to the criminal justice officials responsible for implementing the results in a clearer and more concise manner,
2) establishing action research models to carry out the research, and
3) ensuring that ethical tenets are at the forefront of the research.
For the theoretical concepts that emerge from criminal justice research to become policy in the criminal justice system a more productive relationship between criminal justice officials and academic researchers must be established. This will facilitate the It is suggested that research which addresses a range of moral and political perspectives in the criminal justice system, and is more sensitive to the practical content of day-to-day work, offers the possibility of more effective policy interventions, and a more productive relationship between practitioners and academics.
This positive relationship will assist in the dissemination of the results that are acquired from criminal justice research and allow for the practitioners to implement the criminal justice theories through action. Action research should be the mainstay of criminal justice research because the goal is to prevent criminal behavior with the research serving as the catalyst for establishing new methods to address crime. Therefore, positive interactions and relationships between researchers and criminal justice officials should be maintained and facilitated throughout the entire research process for clear and concise understanding on behalf of criminal justice officials of the research. These criminal justice practitioners can then use actionable tactics to implement the positives from the research to change the criminal phenomenon being studied through the research.
The final change that should occur is to ensure that all criminal justice research is ethical with ethics displayed throughout. Unethical research in criminal justice can have terrible consequences because if implemented by criminal justice practitioners, lives can be affected and people can have their freedoms eradicated. Therefore, researchers must ensure that they do not pursue criminal justice research that espouses racist or unequal views such as using eugenics to determine future criminals© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 10:42 pm ad1c9bdddf>
