The roles of psychologists can differ quite a bit, depending on the part of the criminal justice system where they are working. For this Assignment, you are to research this topic using your textbook and additional outside resources and write a 2–to 3-page paper on your findings. Your paper should:
- Identify and describe the psychologists’ roles within the criminal justice system (i.e., applied scientist, basic scientist, policy evaluator, and advocate).
- Provide detailed examples of each of those roles in action within each of the following environments:
- Law enforcement
- Courts system (excluding jury selection)
Be sure to support your answers with material from the Reading and outside research (at least two outside sources from scholarly journal articles, Internet sources, the textbook articles from the Library, and other course material.)
The paper should contain a cover page and a list of references in APA style. All internal citation of outside sources plus the listing of all references should also adhere to APA style.
