Public Safety Issue
Number of sources: 10
The first step is to identify a public safety issue. An issue could be an identifiable gap in existing services resulting in inefficiency or liability, or a recommended improvement to add value to existing services. Next you should conduct library research to determine what has already been researched and written about this topic.
For Step #1, you will prepare an annotated bibliography of at least ten potential sources for public safety administration research for presentation to the class.
As primary sources are key to research, at least 7 out of 10 of your sources should be primary sources. The further removed from the actual study, the less valuable the source will be.
