As always one 's not going to know everything about everything. One of the questions I had before I started doing some research was how will the training experience be like. Since I know The post-secondary education needed to become a probation officer is a bachelor’s degree. "Typically in justice administration, social work, corrections, psychology or in some places a master’s degree in one of the preceding fields probation officer one will be working with criminals. So how will the training help me when an offender gets a little out of hand?
about the brain to help them rehabilitate? Put another way: If the brain can grow new neural pathways after an injury … could we help the brain re-grow morality?” This question poses an interesting view on how to properly rehabilitate criminals. However, rehabilitation only has the ability to play a small part in the recovery process. A majority of the recovery is reliant on the criminal and their desire to actually change for the betterment of themselves and the society. In doing this, they cannot be locked away in solitary confinement.
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
Hua needed help, so he called three other times, and eventually he got a different operator. Police dispatchers are specifically trained to keep the caller on the phone, so they can keep the caller calm. They are also trained to figure out what is going on to dispatch the right amount/specific law enforcement officers. (https://www.post.ca.gov/public-safety-dispatchers-basic-course.aspx) The schooling required to become a police dispatcher is to have a high school diploma, but many employers would rather you to have a background in criminal justice in addition. How we could avoid more cases like this from happening would be to figure out during the job interview if the person would be reliable during a call.
Specifically, I want to practice family law, and help families try to stay together, even in the worst kinds of situations. I hope to influence legislation to give children more rights in the court system because I believe that they do not have enough. Finally, I hope to come back to the Independence Youth Court and serve as a mentor for volunteers just like me who need guidance in their college and career planning. I hope to continue my work with the Independence Youth Court long after I pass the Bar
Finally, my last suggestion would be to alter the labels of ex-felonies for minor violations, and changing how to use the criminal check box. Once an ex-convict paid for their time in prison for inferior crimes we should not label then as a felon, so that they can apply for jobs and do not have to check on the felony box when applying for a job. Consequently, ex-convict could get a better chance to be hired, so that they truly have a chance to readjust in the society. People that who are labeled as a felon have a hard time applying for jobs, housings, and getting food stamps, making it impossible to survive and to provide for their family. They can lose their kids, their home, and become homeless and in other cases going back to jail.
How does a system that is designed to punish, treat mentally ill offenders? The answer is legislative reforms to provide funding to treat and establish groups to monitor inmates inside prison, however, there must also be community involvement outside of the prison walls where offenders can establish an assistance and not be simply released to the wild as they are
Since I witnessed that event, I feel like I have a lot to do in the future to help elevate the value of humanity. I want to work as a journalist, who can always write about the truth behind all the issues that the innocent people are facing all over the world, I also want to study criminal justice in college as my major, after I graduate from college my plan is to work hard to bring innocent people’s
By providing them with the meds need for their behavior can not only be a good thing for the inmate but it can also ensure the safety of our staff and prevent our prison from being hit with unnecessary lawsuits. Last but not least, I would also try to keep industry within the prison. The industry will not only teach the inmates responsibility, but it will also give them the opportunity to learn job skills that they could use to provide an honest living for themselves once they are free. By giving them these skills could also prevent them from return back or even continuing to live their life committing crimes. It has been proving that with, “some good fortune, expertise in a particular industry can mean the difference between unemployment and a steady job”(Groh, 2013).
Their motivation can be blocked by training and education that ignores adult learning principles" (Real-Time Frontline, 2013). Honestly, I apply for this master's program because I was hoping that once I graduated, there would be more opportunities for me. I realized that I really did not know what I wanted to do with my Sociology degree but I did know I did not want to be in school too long. My external motivation is finding a better job and making a higher salary, in order to live conformably in Los Angeles. My internal motivation is to have job satisfaction and be very passionate about my
For Lindsey she needs psychological help and realization of why she steals, because she comes from a high income household she does not steal for means of survival. Her father needs to be actively and positive involvement in her restorative justice process in order for it to be completely successful. Lindsey needs to be educated on her crimes and what are the possibilities if she doesn’t go down that route. Since Lindsey has a passion she needs to embraced it into her program and the program needs to included possible connections to he passion in order to created a stake of conformity. Restorative justice programs will help Lindsey not become a Chronic
I believe if they had a program such as the "Insight Prison Project" they can ultimately get prepped and maybe take a better path. Something that I would add to the program is more inspiration to the prisoners that will not be able to go back in the community. Inmates that are going through life sentences need just as much counseling as a person that’s getting out in two weeks. At least if you won 't be able to be a good citizen again, at least they can have something positive in their life to at least be a good prisoner. Another aspect I would add to the program is expanding the program to prisons all over the United States because I believe it can help so many people with their problem with
Doug, I am very interested in applying to be an Astin Scholar, and I wanted to get your thoughts on an idea I had for the application 's research proposal. As you probably already know, getting the homeless housed is one of the top goals of activists and non-profits today. Their argument is that a housing-first approach gives a homeless individual the dignity and motivation they need to begin the hard work of turning their life around and integrating back into society. I thought I could do an analysis of the mental health of homeless individuals who aren 't housed, versus the mental health of those who are. I am unsure of what sort of a methodology I would use to collect my data, but I feel my concept would make for profound research.
Rather than focusing on instilling a law that would change the behavior of people, i.e. sentencing youth to jail in hopes of them changing their law-breaking ways, the tribal system used their culture as the basis for instilling change and created a program that reflected their indigenous values. Cody’s connection to his tribe grew and although not raised knowing what a native was, knowing he was one and having a support group to teach him was a driving force towards succeeding in the program. Indigenous legal systems have been known for their unconventional ways of dealing with offenders that do not seek to gain compensation for any wrongdoing. If Cody would have been left to the process of the Canadian justice system, there would not have been any remorse from his part, he would wallow in his punishment.
If correctional professionals were to take a class on understanding criminal behavior or criminal theory I honestly believe that it would help them in understanding how to help certain inmates achieve rehabilitation or self confidence. When trying to understand why people commit crimes, correctional professionals should have an understanding on how to treat and take care
