Anticrime/Prevention Program: Part 2 – Evaluation Strategy & Logic Model Assignment Instructions
DUE DATE: by 10am FRIDAY January 26, 2023. NO LATE WORK!!!
This assignment requires you to develop an evaluation strategy for a police or crime problem chosen using Vito & Higgins planning evaluation strategy in Chapter 2. Using the evaluation strategy in Vito & Higgins to frame the paper, you will establish goals, objectives, and performance indicators using a theory that provides the basis for your specified program. Citations must be used for the underlying theories. For example, you choose violent crime as the problem you are going to address, then you will examine the theories surrounding violent crime reduction. Using one of these theories, such as focused deterrence, you will model a program after a Ceasefire or Pulling Levers example. You will use the theory to inform program operations to drive the selection of treatments, clarify the services provided, and determine the variables to be measured.
You will also include a Logic Model for the chosen problem following the Vito & Higgins model in Chapter 2. The Logic Model should be in the form of a chart (an excel spreadsheet will be fine). The Logic Model will cover inputs, activities, outputs, short-term outcomes, long-term outcomes, and external factors.
