For your course project, you will develop a proposal for a field test to design, implement, measure, and evaluate a problem-oriented policing crime reduction program in a major U.S. city. You will select a city (New York) and develop the proposal .
This paper is a research proposal.
Designing a research proposal requires planning and a specific format for putting your ideas together. Chapter 4 of your textbook outlines this process and gives a summary overview of what the proposal should look like. The following list provides the elements of a research proposal.
Problem or Objective
2. Literature Review
3. Research Questions
4. Subjects for Study
6. Data Collection Methods
Your proposal should include all ten elements and the first four should be in detail. Remember you have already submitted the literature review which included an overview of the problem or objective. You must now design appropriate research questions and discuss the subjects for the study. You will want to briefly outline the measurement, data collection methods, type of analysis you intend to use as well as a timeline and hypothetical budget. Remember, research proposals and studies evolve as they unfold, and need to be continually refined. As you get deeper into your research, you may find the need to make adjustments to any one of these steps. For this assignment, it is critical that you develop a sound set of research questions for your study. The research questions will then drive the remainder of your proposal. If done correctly, you should end up with approximately 3-5 pages. Remember to use citations in the APA style and include a reference page.
