7104-3 Develop Issue StatementsInstructionsThe Adult Drug Court program offers cognitive-based, outpatient counseling and drug monitoring of offenders who are diagnosed with a moderate to severe substance use disorder. The offenders must be convicted of drug offenses or offenses motivated by their drug use. Participant compliance in the program is monitored regularly by the drug court team. The team consists of the judge, public defender, probation officer, and counselors. Participants are randomly drug tested on a frequent basis and they must participate in substance use disorder treatment, as determined by their licensed counselor. Because this population often has varied treatment needs, they are often referred to additional services such as residential treatment, Medically-Assisted Treatment (MAT), cognitive intervention classes, and individual counseling sessions. Over the past 5 years, the drug court success rate has continued to drop. This year, the success rate is at 38 percent.The program is facing several challenges:High rate of probationers who never report to their assigned drug court probation officer.High rearrests rate while in treatment.Continuance of illegal drug use while in the program.Participants do not take full advantage of residential treatment in the community.You are meeting with the senior court and officials to discuss the issues the court is facing. After the meeting, you are tasked with developing issue statements. An example of an issue statement is the following:Issue Statements (Consider issue/trend; how its moving; and the impact on customers.) Over the past 5 years, the percent of probationers supervised has increased by 18 percent. Probationers increased risk and complex needs (e.g., mental illness, chemical dependency) combined with an ever-changing external environment (e.g., recreational marijuana bill; new criminal presiding judge) requires an evolving skillset staffs need to affect long-term, prosocial behavior change; if not addressed, this will result in: Increased recidivism; Increased risk to staff safety; Decrease in positive behavior change; Diminished ability to decrease victimization; and Decline in the ability to meet customer expectations to reduce crime.Please develop issue statements focused on the problems that the drug court is facing.

From this weeks readings and your own research, summarize what you understand to have been the Constitutional Framers’ goals in writing a constitution creating a limited government. Why was the constitution created? What did they fear? Discuss fully, demonstrating your knowledge of the readings.Choose any one of the issues (i.e. Full Faith and Credit, Freedom of Association, Freedom to Assemble, Confrontation of Witnesses, Excessive Bail, [but not Cruel and Unusual Punishment, as this is covered in other courses], etc.) covered in these materials.

After establishing probable cause, your company, AB Investigative Services (ABIS), has been contacted by a prominent state law enforcement agency. Investigators do not understand the specifics of processing digital evidence or analyzing digital evidence. As an ABIS investigator, you will need go to the scene and provide guidance concerning the identification of digital evidence that will establish motive related to the particular offense. The state forensic agents will follow the procedure guidelines provided by you to establish the motive of its case as it relates to a high-tech crime.For full credit, your Discussion Board posting must include the following information:What do you consider to be the 3 most important computer-related forensics procedures necessary in processing evidence at the scene of a crime? Provide your reasoning of why these are the most important procedures.What do you consider to be the most important aspect of how a financial investigator must secure digital evidence to help in the prosecution of offenders, and why this process is important?How would omitting one of these forensic procedures negatively affect either the investigation or prosecution process?What is a possible oversight that could occur during the collection and identification of digital evidence process, and what is one way to overcome such an oversight?

For my research proposal I would like to look into the Bay Areas housing crisis. The affordable housing shortage situation in California has become an alarming matter as prices keep getting out of hands. This has made the lives of many families very difficult. Living in the Bay Area has given me the chance to clearly observe the frightening affordable housing crisis. Therefore, I would like to address this problem by conducting a meaningful research and find plausible solutions.Statement of the problem:The Bay Area housing crisis: Accountability and Access to affordable unitsBackground of the problem:According to the results gathered by a Quinnipiac poll in 2019, only 53 percent of California voters say that they are able to afford to live in the Golden State. The situation has worsened as the median home price in California has surpassed $600,000, a 10.3 percent increase compared to December 2018 (https://www.car.org/aboutus/mediacenter/newsreleases/2020releases/december2019sales). Cities such as San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Cruz, Los Angeles, Long Beach and Anaheim are encountering median rental prices that exceed the fair market price by a huge margin, pushing more Californians to move to different states, since they are no longer able to afford to stay ( https://www.hcd.ca.gov/policy-research/plans-reports/docs/SHA_Final_Combined.pdf ).The presence of big tech companies in California is one of many reasons for this housing and renting prices gap, which cause the demand for affordable homes to rise.Purpose of the study:The purpose of my study is to develop a framework that would mitigate the affordable housing shortage in the Bay Area. To do so, I would revise policy at the state level to see what is working and what is not. Once key factors are identified, I will provide several recommendations that would effectively strengthen the framework. With that being said, the research will mostly benefit people in need of affordable houses, since they are the most vulnerable population. Cities would benefit as well, given the fact that a portion of their fiscal reserve will be free from the cost of supporting homeless assistance programs.
