Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC, also known as Racial and Ethnic Disparity (RED)) has been part of the JJDP Act for over 20 years yet arguably little progress has been made in reducing the rate of minority involvement throughout the juvenile justice system. 1) Using authoritative sources, identify and thoroughly explain two (2) factors outside of the juvenile justice system, such as education, poverty, illiteracy, poor nutrition, absent parents, etc., that impact the high level of DMC.  2) Identify and thoroughly explain two (2) means by which law enforcement or juvenile probation officers can potentially reduce DMC. 3) Specifically explain in one paragraph how our university’s core value of RESPECT applies to specific contents of the textbook readings for this module and include a citation and page number. Your response should go beyond the obvious and be written at a graduate level. Your answer must be no less than 1500 words and you must use at least three authoritative sources to support your position. NOTE:  the use of only three (3) authoritative sources demonstrates a minimum level of acceptable graduate level work and is not exemplary or necessarily proficient. Your text is NOT an authoritative source.  All sources must be properly cited using the APA style.   YOU MUST ALSO ADD THE URL (Uniform Resource Locator) OR the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) to the end of EVERY APA reference found on the internet.   Written assignments must be scholarly, not be written in the first person tense and must follow the current American Psychological Association (APA) format and style (e.g., double-spaced, indents, etc.) and include the following: cover page, abstract, discussion, conclusion, and references. The APA format can be obtained from the Saint Leo Library website, from the purchase of APA reference materials, from the commercial purchase of software templates, or from the APA web site.   All work must be completed in Microsoft Office applications.  Work created in any other application will not be accepted.
