USA PATRIOT Act: The USA PATRIOT Acts I and II have been viewed as controversial public policies in terms
of traditional American legal concepts regarding rights of accused versus major public safety concerns rooted
in the events of 9/11. Please take one side of the issue—either in support of or in opposition to the
fundamental tenets of the policy—and offer sound scholarly-based arguments for your position. Suggest any
revisions to such policy that you deem appropriate.
Socioeconomic Correlates of Crime: Identify and analyze the basic socioeconomic correlates of crime. How
does an understanding of these correlates aid public safety leaders and specialists (practitioner-scholars) in
developing effective public policy strategies while focusing on ways to promote social equity concerns
regarding race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation?
