Crim 220 Chapter 1: Crime, Criminal Justice, and Scientific Inquiry
Why study Research Methods?
CJ professionals are both consumers and producers of research
It is important for CJ professionals to be informed consumers of research
Need to understand findings and how to apply those findings to his or her department
Two Realities
Experiential Reality: things we know from direct experience (e.g. touching a hot stove)
Agreement Reality: things we consider real because we are told they are real, and
everyone agrees upon this. Much of the stuff we deal with, especially social issues.
(e.g. controversies of global warming- are humans responsible for it?)
Example: Kansas City Preventive Patrol Experiment (revealed the agreement between
reality that simply increasing patrols decreased crime was misleading)
The Role of Science: an approach to an agreement between both
realities. Assertions are logical and empirical (scientist have a certain criteria
to be met).
