City officials have asked your department supervisor to provide information on environmental influences on offender trends and patterns. Your supervisor has asked you to create a video presentation on this topic to present to city officials at their weekly meeting. The video presentation should include f our examples of environmental influences and an assessment of how each one influences offender trends and patterns.

The outline should layout how the presentation will show each point you wish to make to the audience and include speaker notes you will use for the narration. Write the speaker notes as if you are presenting to a live audience. Include references to sources, including graphics, cited in APA style.

- Step 3: Create the video presentation utilizing the outline you have prepared. Record the narration from the speaker notes.
The video presentation should have the following characteristics:
