The descriptions and topics of this course change from semester-to-semester, as well as from instructor-to-instructor. Prerequisite: varies with the topic offered. SOCI 390 INTELLIGENCE-LED POLICING. This course is designed as an introduction to the intelligence-led policing model, concepts, associated theories and issues. The course will examine criminological theories, modern techniques that integrate best practices of problem oriented policing with law enforcement intelligence and crime analysis. The course will include collection of data, mapping and analysis of the data, along with various strategies in response to identified problems. Case studies and practical applications will be utilized to illustrate principles included in the course. SOCI 390 CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS: A PRACTITIONER'S PERSPECTIVE. This course will provide a practical application of criminological theories and research to law enforcement practices through an experiential examination of criminal investigations. Through hands-on activities such as mock crime scenes, interviews of witnesses/victims, motor vehicle stops, and custodial interrogations, students will work together on criminal investigations from the initial crime through the prosecution of a suspect. Consistent with a sociological perspective of crime, students will analyze the role that social categories such as race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, and immigration status play in shaping criminal behavior as well as institutional responses to that behavior.
