Evaluate the degree to which this group is a threat to the prison system and the community of that particular state.

Question
Background: The events of 9/11 resulted in new interest regarding threat groups and a renewed vigilance for the potential violence and disruption of civil society from prison gangs. Prison gangs have proven to be a rich breeding ground for terrorist recruitment as well as a serious corrections problem that saps fiscal, personnel, and physical facility resources from correctional systems. All correctional administrators need to address the threat of such groups in the facility and the community, which encourages further study of this important criminal justice issue.

Assignment: The objective of this assignment is to select a single prison threat group from those operating in an adult U.S. state prison system. Provide background information including the history and development of this group. Evaluate the degree to which this group is a threat to the prison system and the community of that particular state. In addition, discuss a variety of options and strategies used by other states (best practices) to control and contain threat groups as well as the method currently in use in the jurisdiction that you have chosen to investigate. Finally, arrive at a conclusion as to whether the strategy is working and provide any alternative approaches that have a proven track record that the state should consider. To this end, the instructions for this assignment follow:

Students are to use library resources to find at least three peer review journal articles (or other reference documents once this minimum requirement is achieved) relating to the history of the selected threat group, definitions of threat groups (gangs), or the variety of strategies implemented to contain and control threat groups in a prison environment. One of the purposes of this assignment is to develop the student’s ability to do graduate level research on this topic. The submitted paper must be a minimum of five pages. Avoid using the course text book as a reference. This is purely an exercise in academic research, graduate level thinking and academic writing ability.

The following elements should be included in your essay’s rhetoric.

Cover page: Include the title of the paper, your name, class title and date of submission. Please see the sample essay provided in the Course Content for additional assistance.
Section 1: Introduction: Make an introductory statement about the topic of your paper and what threat group you intend to examine. These first paragraphs should provide the purpose of your paper (the thesis).
Section 2: Summarize the main points of the journal articles you have chosen discussing the history of the group or the history of prison gangs.
Section 3: Discussion of the topic. Here are some issues to consider. What strategies does the research recommend and where have these strategies been effective? How do they differ and where have the competing strategies been ineffective? How do you measure program success for an intervention program such as this?
Section 4: Conclusion based on your research. Based on your analysis of the threat group, the articles and their conclusions, and information regarding the efforts of the jurisdiction under study, what are your conclusions as to the solutions currently in place? Can you provide a viable alternative if you are not satisfied with the status quo?
References: References must be correctly cited on a separate reference page in APA format.
