Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) / Randomized Field Experiment

Refers to an experimental research design in which participants are randomly assigned to a treatment or a control group. Most social scientists consider random assignment to lead to the highest level of confidence that observed effects are the result of the program and not other variables.



Lawful detection and surveillance are essential components of criminal justice practice. Typically, detection can mean looking for illicit things concealed on or in people or in the surrounding environment; and surveillance is watching spaces, people, activities and movement for unlawful activities.
