With the following two points in mind: Availability of data Ease of data collection Can anyone think of any good criminal justice dissertation topics? Thoughts??? Ideas??? I have access to a sheriff's office, to include arrest data from a jail. I've contemplated doing something along the lines of officer satisifaction, but haven't pinpointed any solid ideas yet. Still fishing for something tangible and am wondering how to collect the data on it and am wondering how to measure it. I have a couple of years to find something, but am disappointed that nothing solid has popped into my mind yet.
