A code of ethics can be thought of as a moral compass that helps one decide how to act in critical moments. Ethics is particularly important for those who are in a position of power in corrections, as these individuals have the greatest influence over their employees. Officers in correctional facilities make extremely critical decisions every day and their choices have a profound effect on lives. It is therefore imperative that these men and women do what is right and are free of biases. Corrections professionals must have character and exemplify good ethical conduct.
In the film CORRECTIONS/JAILERS SAFETY II, it explain the standard operating procedure for correctional regarding extortion, maintaining peace, controlling disturbances and contrabands. Extortion is the crime of obtaining money or some other thing of value by the abuse of one’s office or authority. Extortion can occur when an officer becomes close to inmate and brought them something of value that they aren’t supposed to have. Then inmate starts to blackmail the police officer because they know that correctional officer will be held accountable for letting the inmate have something of value that weren’t supposed to have. The best way for this to not to happen is remembering the law, try to be sympathetic to an extent, and keep the relationship
There’s a multitude of things that need to be repaired in our system, and prison is one of them. Prison reform is an important issue because we need to take care of everyone and with the way we treat criminals, we do not see them as equal. We need to assess illegal acts correctly instead of trying to put people in jail for the rest of their lives. We also need to work more on how we try to rehabilitate people. Instead of barring convicts off from the rest of us, we need to teach them how to integrate, so they can live better lives than they did
I am in favor of all the programs because they each play their part in assisting with the health and needs of those within and they can be cost efficient. We begin this chapter reading about parole and the two types of release options which are mandatory and discretionary. Also, we learn about the issues released offenders deal with trying to lead normal lives after prison. For that reason, programs are created to assist with job search, education, and training. Such programs allow the offender to obtain jobs in prison and/or the “free world” while
First of all, every individual in society is entrusted by the government to obey the law and contribute to the community in a positive manner. However, incarcerated individuals have abused this trust by harming others and the community itself. Therefore, shouldn’t these individuals be further punished if they have committed crimes that made their victims suffer? Since it is believed that “human rights of prisoners are said to be ‘weak’ human rights,” then these law offenders could be punished by depriving them of their freedom with strict rules and even solitary confinement. In solitary confinement, prisoners may be punished by limiting human contact which have made prisoners “mentally even more ill” (Yamashita, “Human Rights of Prisoners”; Casey, “Solitary Confinement in the UK”).

“After an individual has been accused of a crime, the process generally moves to the courts” (ic.galegroup.com). In ic.galegroup.com, if there is evidence to be presented against the criminal to get indicted, a list of charges against the accused will be given. There are cases that justice was served unfairly. Sadly there are many who are imprisoned for illegal activity they did not carry out. Also, people are punished harshly for doing something very minor where no one or anything was hurt, stolen or broken.
They also manage the overall budget and allocate certain money to certain needed programs for prisons. The government is so important when it comes to prisons as they are protecting the people behind bars and preventing them from being a burden on society and rehabilitating them. That being said, it is essential for the government to have control of prisons and monitor the status of prisoners to ensure total wellbeing. Overall, United States prison policy must be amended and enforced on various levels to accommodate for the ultimate mental and physical well being of prisoners. As well as systemic properties, the government also dictates prisoners rights.
nurses will comply when they have awareness about sanctions that could be meted out to them should they breach any of the ethical provisions .monitoring and sanctions also influence how nurses perceive and comply to their professional ethics. This monitoring is ultimately oriented towards the goal of making sure that all nurses adhere to the ethical standards in their professional practice
This is the strongest power of judges to impose sanctions against actions that interfere with the normal court process. A finding of contempt of court may be caused by failure to comply with a lawful order of the court, showing no respect for the judge, disruption of proceedings through poor behaviour, or publication of material deemed likely to prejudice a fair trial. A judge can impose sanctions such as fines or imprisonment for a person found guilty of contempt of court. Judges in common law systems typically have wider powers to declare someone in contempt than judges in civil law systems.
The “guards” could basically do whatever they wanted to the “prisoners”, which, in turn, created great emotional damage, surely scarring them for life. It was, overall, extensively emotionally and psychologically damaging, which is a prime example as to why such an experiment could not be executed in today’s
In the scenario, a community corrections officer subdues an unruly offender who is in custody by spraying mace on the offender, and it also affects another alleged violator in an adjoining area. The Eighth Amendment of the United States Constitution states that there should not be any cruel or unusual punishments inflicted (U.S. Const. amend. VIII). Based on the facts in the scenario, I do not believe that the offender in custody or the alleged probation violator waiting had their Constitutional rights violated.
It is clear to see that if incarcerated individuals could vote while in prison many negative factors they face would be prevented. However, Politician’s wouldn’t want this to happen because they know that this would go against or hurt their campaign for many reasons, one being they wouldn’t be able to successfully persuade both incarcerated individuals and those of us in society due to one party (incarcerated individuals or citizens) being able to benefit from the promises of the candidate and one not. This wouldn’t be beneficial to those who oversee private prisons either because they would be prosecuted if the truths came to light about the mistreatment and injustice of those who are in jail face in their day to day lives. These wrongdoings could be changed in many ways but if I had to step up and do it personally I would demonstrate through signing a petition or marching for change. Signing a petition that would speak out and highlight things that need to change to ensure a safe life for their inmates would ultimately cause the overseers to consider my proposition to prevent a scandal.
The courtroom also can be used as an example of this need. The environment of the courtroom being safe is another one of the needs the criminal justice professionals owe to every person. Following all of the rules of the U.S. constitution while prosecuting a defendant with the facts of the case still must be followed for the population. Security also of the populations lives must be followed such as capturing criminals causing harm to
