The "Blue Wall of Silence" and Police Culture

Each student will be required to complete the term project, which is an 8-12 page APA Style paper. Your paper
should have at least 8-12 pages of substance not counting the cover and reference pages. Please be sure that your
paper is a Word Document (.doc) uploaded to the assignment section as an attachment. Students will be required
to use at least three scholarly – (peer-reviewed)- sources. Students have access to peer-reviewed sources through
the APUS library.
Students are required to follow APA Style guidelines.
Students should choose one these topics and write about its relevance to police ethics. Be thinking about
identifying the major talking points about your topic that are important to review. Critically assess the literature
on the subject. I am looking for critical thinking and a clear indication that you have a grasp of the literature.
Do not include quotes in your work. I want to see your critical thinking skills on display and not a string of
quotes written by published authors. Your analysis is what is needed for a successful paper. In other words, the
peer-reviewed sources used in the paper should be paraphrased, cited in proper APA format and reflect critical
thinking.
At this point in your educational journey, you should have solid substance and proper academic formatting in
your college-level writing assignments. Students will be graded on both so make sure you turn in your best
work.
Do not wait until the last minute to research, write, format, and edit. Proper time management is required to turn
in a quality paper that highlights your criminal justice writing.
