Instructions The purpose of this assignment is to teach the SARA model of problem-solving. You will frame your responses, while utilizing your creative writing, to fill in the scenario. The mayor of your community is asking you to assess and provide expert advice for what is reportedly becoming a problem in your jurisdiction. First, you will be asked to scan reports and data (see below) to determine the extent and views of the prostitution problem on and nearby Main Street in Boomtown (population 1m), USA. Is prostitution a problem? How much of a priority is the problem? Second, you will be asked to analyze the prostitution issue. How big is the problem? Who is it affecting? Is it contained to one area or is it spread out over several? How much community support do we have in solving the problem? All of these questions and many more will help guide your solutions. Third, you will develop a response to the problem, based upon the analysis you conducted in stage two. Remember that a direct law enforcement response may not be the most effective and that a multi-faceted response is often more successful than a one-sided approach. The most common way to come up with a set of responses is to look at the problem using a tool based on a popular criminological theory called routine activity theory developed by Lawrence Cohen and Marcus Felson in 1979. The theory proposes that three factors must come together for a crime to be committed: (1) a motivated offender – a person who is psychologically ready to commit a crime; (2) a suitable target – a victim allowing for the opportunity of crime; and (3) lack of capable guardians – a person or physical object that prevents the offender from becoming active. Lastly, you will be given the opportunity to assess your response and come up with alternatives, if needed. Without evaluating the response we will never know how effective your plan was. In real life the entire SARA process may take years, but is an integral part of any community policing effort.
