***project guidelines:

for this task, you will design questions and then interview two individuals about their perceptions of policing and crime in one specific neighborhood that is easily accessed by you.

this task will enable you to see how interesting and informative it can be to tap into the attitudes of respondents regarding their view of police and crime patterns in their community. by obtaining such data, you learn how to help the public and police work collaboratively to promote safer environments.

make sure that your approach demonstrates full respect for the legal, ethical, moral, and civil rights of your interviewees to privacy, propriety, freedom of expression, security, and dignity. guarantee the confidentiality of the interview process by protecting the identity of your interviewees. do not reveal any information that could be used to their personal detriment. the foundation of your interview must be to build and uphold trust so you obtain the most candid views possible. take a nonjudgmental, neutral, and understanding approach to the interviewees.

focus your questions on how ordinary people perceive both the policing process and crime patterns in their community. to interview for this task, choose two people, in the same general locale, who represent distinct social, ethnic, racial, or gender categories so that you can compare and contrast views in your analysis.

some of the questions you might ask your respondents:

background questions:
what do you do for a living?
how would you describe your "social standing" or class background?
how would you describe your political views?
what values are most important to you?
what do you think are your community's major safety problems?
how safe do you feel in your community?
how would you assess your interactions with the police in your community?
ask additional questions that provide a foundation for analyzing the perceptions of the interviewees toward police and crime.

policing questions:
how do you believe people in your community typically feel about how the police operate in your community?
how do you believe victims of crime are treated by the system?
how appropriately and effectively do the police relate to your community?
how do you think that our society in general views the police?
ask additional questions that delve into the perceptions of the interviewees.

crime questions:
which areas of your community have high crime potential or high crime activity?
do you feel that schools in your community are safe?
do you feel that children are safe on their way to school and playing in public areas?
which members of your community seem most vulnerable to being crime victims?
which persons in your community seem most likely to be problems for public safety?
how likely are you to report crime that you have witnessed to the police?
how do you feel about communicating with police officers about actual and potential crime?
ask additional questions that delve into the perceptions of the interviewees.

instructions for writing your paper:

- analyze, compare, and contrast the views of your two respondents with regard to their perceptions and evaluations of the police and community.
- relate your respondents' views to their political orientations, their personal and occupational circumstances, their prior experiences, and their social statuses.
- demonstrate that you gained the full trust of the interviewees by honoring their legal rights, respecting their dignity and moral worth, and by complying with appropriate research ethics to ensure confidentiality.
- discuss how the public perceptions and related belief systems that you have uncovered can be applied to enhance public safety in the neighborhood.
- describe law enforcement could use the interview methods you employed and the findings from your interviews to advance more effective, ethical, and moral intelligence-led policing.

in addition:
in your analysis, you must apply:
- concepts from your required readings.
- concepts from at least one peer-reviewed scientific research article from a scholarly journal in the capella library.
- these sources must be quoted, cited and referenced. use these sources to penetrate beneath the statements of the respondents to analyze the foundation of their views.

use proper apa guidelines (6th ed.) for organization, presentation, and formatting.

your paper should be approximately 1000–1200 words in length.

if you can interview someone for the answers then great. if not then you can make up answers based on your feelings and can be creative in answering as someone else. i will provide the articles necessary and you may use others you find as well. thank you!
