About a year ago I went through the hardest time of my life thus far. I was sitting in my room and I heard my mom start to cry, I walked out and asked her what was wrong. Little did I know she was going to tell me that my cousin Jesse, had committed suicide. It was toward the beginning of my junior year when I found out what had happened to my cousin. I was still getting used to all of my hard classes that I was taking that year and all of the work I was getting.

Then suddenly I fell and at first I didn 't think anything happened but then when I touched my lip I realized that I was bleeding a lot from the lip.
Law enforcement officers are the first gatekeepers to the criminal justice system. They make discretionary decisions on a daily basis that determines who continues through the criminal justice system and who is bypassed. Three major factors influence police discretion like the type of community and department they serves, as well as an officer’s experience, personal rules and the circumstances surrounding the incident. Acting as gatekeepers a police officer has sole discretion to stop and question, investigate and arrest people. An officer’s morals, ethics and training play a large role in their discretionary decision-making.

The teachers put me on the fence for the rest of the recess period. When I got back in the classroom I got right in my seat and started to cry a little but not a lot. I held in the tears like the man I was, but it was very hard to do. I thought I was going to burst like a bubble when I got in there I was really surprised I didn't. The rest of the day went pretty smoothly mostly because I didn't tell anyone what
This competency is all about being able to make critical decisions in the case of ethical dilemmas and acting professionally in the work place. Although ethical dilemmas rarely have clear-cut solutions, this competency tells social workers to turn to the NASW code of ethics and supervision for guidance. That is exactly what I did for my "Ethic Paper" which you can find below. For this assignment, I was asked to interview a licensed MSW about an ethical dilemma they faced in their career, how they handled it, and how they came to their decisions. This assignment allowed me to better understand how an ethical dilemma is handled in the real world (as opposed to the many hypothetical situations we discuss in class) and also challenged my interviewing

In this week’s module one content. I learned that there should always be police integrity and community trust. “With police and community trust, there is an honored relationship between citizens and a government agency.” (Community Trust and Police Integrity, p.7-16) Secondly, police officers must be trusted to behave in an ethical way on their own.
Was one of the WORST days of my life, I got up and was about to start getting ready for the day and to go to physical therapy, then I walked into my moms and dads bathroom to find out that my dad had been laying on the couch and crying because our day was very sick, and keeping him alive would be keeping him in too much pain, I cried a lot I think everyone in my family cried a lot, so I went into the kitchen to get him so I could hold him and love on him before we had to take him the vet, and put him down, so a couple of hours went by my sister and my brother came home from school, I canceled my physical therapy, that I was fine with, so I could be with my dog before we had too take him, we took him we had him put down and that was the hardest
I have been faced with many challenges with ADHD. It affects every aspect of my life including my behavior, my mood and most of all my cognitive and organizational skills.

The importance of the practice or rehearsals conducted by the crisis team helps staff consider the kind of questions that might arise proactively and resolve them as a team. Effective crisis preparedness plans must include staff training that focuses on both planning and team procedures.

This research paper is about the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT), which police departments use to increase officer safety and to provide diversion alternatives for incarceration. After deinstitutionalization, people with a serious mental illness sought treatment in the community. However, people with a serious mental illness found it difficult to reintegrate back into society and community resources were not prepared to accommodate those with a serious mental illness. Often, people with a serious mental illness do not receive proper treatment. Without proper treatment, challenges arise, which increases the chance of interacting with law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
Law enforcement has many tools they use to when determining how to approach a call. Whether the call is a traffic stop, a domestic call, or looking for a suspect to a crime.
