Dr. O is called to a police department to evaluate their new de-escalation training program. The program is meant to train patrol officers on de-escalation techniques to avoid use of force during high-tension encounters in the field. Every patrol officer in the department has undergone the training and the department wants to know how well the training worked. Dr. O is given records of the number of use-of-force incidents every month for three years prior to the training and he continues to record the number of incidents every month for three years after the training.
Here is a guide to help you write an analysis:
What type of research design is this? Be as specific and detailed as possible.
State the strengths and weaknesses of this research design (e.g., causation, threats to internal and external validity)
Discuss potential ethical issues that are relevant to this type of research design and to this particular situation, as well as the ethical safeguards the researchers will have to take to complete their study.
Try your best to think out of the box and be as thorough as possible when writing your answers. Beyond simply answering the questions, show that you understand the class material in contexts outside of the classroom. In other words, impress me with your knowledge!
Use the syllabus as a reference for the analytical review.
