Applied Criminal Justice Ethics
Assignment 2: Scenario Analysis
You are a member of the training division at your law enforcement agency. The Sergeant of the unit has asked that you create an informative voice-over PowerPoint presentation that explains the normative and applied prevailing criminal justice models of ethical reasoning. This PowerPoint presentation will be played at all roll calls and shift briefing training(s) for your department. The instruction set delivered to you indicates that (at a minimum) the PowerPoint should address the history, tenets, and applications of each of the theories. The presentation will assume the normative judgment model, which emphasized the three moral judgment imperatives (the human act, free will, effect upon others). This presentation requires that an embedded audio recording be included with the presentation, which serves to explain the slides that are presented. A suggested outline for the slideshow is listed below.
