In Unit 1, you explored the value of research in public safety, with an emphasis on how failure to adhere to the scientific method can introduce results that undermine public safety. In this discussion, you will continue examining research by finding examples of qualitative and quantitative research used in public safety. You will need to find 1 example of qualitative research and 1 example of quantitative research, each of which led to changes in practice.
The specific steps are as follows:
- Engage in independent research by finding and presenting 1 example of qualitative research and 1 example of quantitative research used in criminal justice agencies.
- Write a 3-paragraph post introducing this research to your classmates.
