In an initial post of at least 400 words, identify a crime or criminal issue that you believe has a law enforcement solution. Note that the recommended resources include certain pages from the National Crime Prevention Council website that include content on diversity awareness. Using content from this source, or from other relevant credible professional, government, or scholarly sources, identify how a crime prevention technique could address diversity awareness objectives.

Guided Response: Respond and provide feedback to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. After reviewing the initial post of your classmates, select another potential solution from the Twenty Five Techniques of Situational Prevention discussion and discuss a complementary program that addresses the same issue identified in their posts which would give a complimentary and more comprehensive program. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion. Challenge your peers by asking a question that may cause them to add additional information about their responses in the initial response. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7, and respond with robust dialogue to anyone who replies to your initial post. Each guided response should be a minimum word of 200 words.
