Ha..I just read that on another thread! Eeek! I'm currently working in education, but have responsibility for safeguarding and working with vulnerable families, so there might be some transferable skills!? I'm hoping the course will give me something else to focus on and will help me to switch off from work in the evenings....and 1000 words is definitely going to keep me busy! ;-) How are you finding the course so far?

Course material arrived today :-) I've read through the assignment one info, but I'm struggling to see how the reading links to the question? Going to look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow. Any tips from someone who has already completed assignment one?... Is it designed to be a report style writing based on crime facts in the area, or does it need to be linked to theory/research behind the crimes? Confused.com!

This took my a while to complete as well. Its ok though. Look at all recent newspaper clippings for crime, look on the internet on your regional police website for crimes and also look for crime stats online. The first question os all about your community.

Thanks! I've read through the local paper and crime stats. Still haven't totally decided on main area to focus on, maybe armed robbery as there seem to have been quite a few recently!? Going to keep reading over the next week and hopefully get something down on paper next weekend!
