Criminal evidence and the strategies and techniques utilized by criminals to commit crimes are constantly changing. Therefore, the strategies and procedures used to collect and present criminal evidence must also continue to evolve. Your task is to develop a presentation report that explores the latest strategies, advancements, and innovations in the area of criminal evidence. You will explore this topic from the perspective of a criminal justice agent who works in the field of criminal justice.
This is Part 2 of the research report you began in Unit III. In Part 1, you developed your topic identification and project outline.
Using the outline you developed in Part 1B of the Unit III Assignment, you are required to develop a PowerPoint Presentation. The slides should contain and address the following components:
- Selected topic name
- Definition of key terms
- Current strategies
- Current and/or pending advancements and/or innovations
- Recommended advancements and/or innovations
- Justification for recommendations
- Plausibility and logistics of the implementation of recommendations
- Anticipated impact of the implementation of recommendations in regards to the collection and utilization of criminal evidence in the criminal justice system
- At a minimum, discussions must address constitutional amendments, exclusions of admissible and inadmissible evidence, and variations in the collection of criminal evidence due to crime location.
This presentation requires a minimum of 12 slides. You must include a minimum of one slide for each of the required components of your outline with the exception of the anticipated impact slide. This slide will need to consist of at least three slides to cover the three areas that you must address. The information provided on each slide must clearly address the primary and secondary tiers of your outline. You will also need to include presentation notes for each slide to explain the slide content in detail. Presentation notes should be written as if you were speaking to an audience about the content on the slide.
At least ten sources must be cited in APA format throughout the PowerPoint presentation. All sources must be scholarly, and at least five of the citations must reference peer-reviewed sources (e.g., academic journals). You must cite all references used in the PowerPoint presentation on the references slide. Do not include any references on the reference slide that were not cited in the PowerPoint presentation.
You can find resources for how to create PowerPoint presentations on the Microsoft Office support website. For example, information about creating your first PowerPoint presentation and basic tasks associated with developing a PowerPoint presentation can be found there.
