In order for it to be effective one must learn the tips and tricks of the veterans of the job, not just using knowledge from the seven weeks of training. Although that will be effective, I feel as if personal experiences are more efficient and useful in succeeding in the job. “You’re going to learn, CO, that some things they taught you in the Academy can get you killed.” (99) Conover realizes that many officers do not follow the rules that were instructed in the Academy. In order to be a strong and acknowledged correctional officer one must bend the rules a bit to get the inmates to comply.
I want to know if I would like to go down the social work path like you or should I choose to find a program for counseling and become a LPC. I think I am intimidated by the process because I graduated so long ago and it looks weird. I could have my masters and licensed by now if I went to grad school after graduating but instead I chose to sit out and sitting out became 3 years without a clue to what I want to do
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 having dubious feelings for the success of the geomapping of offender residences idea. The GIS applications enable the crime agencies and the society and as a result, they would be having more knowledge on criminals and statistics and visual depiction serve as a good benchmark for mapping crime and criminal preferred location. Due to which, in my judgment, sex offenders will look for isolated places due to the presence of the geomapping implementation. But, this in turn, would also be beneficial for the criminals to carry out crime activities within least mapped areas. Also, technology and managerial efforts’ failures are conceivable and it can be crucial in certain circumstances.
Families of rape and murder victims should be allowed to decide the punishment for criminals. When families decide the punishment there is more satisfaction because then they know that there was action taken against the criminal who affected their family. All though it is feared to end in cruel and unusual punishment, there are laws in place to prevent the use of cruel and unusual punishment. Families of
3. You are human – you are not going to change everyone’s perspective, the efforts you try with some people may not work. You may see offenders commit crimes in the future, prepare to deal with it. There is only so much you can do to help these individuals, what they choose to do after their sentence is up to themselves.
In addition, the purpose of punishing offenders is to ensure they will not commit any crimes in future. However, putting all kind of criminals in a prison may not accomplish the goal, but boost the possibility that prisoners will come under the negative peer pressure. Furthermore, many offenders find it difficult to rehabilitate into the society because of their prison records. Thus, social training is believed to benefit them better as they will absorb conventions and codes of conduct after the activities.
The standard model of police practices is assuming that generic strategies for crime reduction can be applied in any jurisdiction no matter the level of crime, the nature of crimes or any other variations. Even though Belize is a small country the “standard model of police practices” could also be criticized if it is to be utilized by the police departments and be efficient in stopping and preventing crimes. Police brutality is an area of research that allows us to understand how common it is and to help us find better solutions to deal with this brutality. There are many surveys and cases studies from police officers that determines how often and why police officers may be involve in
Restorative justice is not focused on inflicting punishment like retributive justice models, but may still act as a deterrent (notes). Restorative justice creates an incentive for offenders to not reoffend, as they will have a greater community support system and the incentive to not let down community members once they have regained trust. Though some community members will likely object to the lack of punishment, restorative justice serves the community by providing a far most cost effective justice system (Karmen,
In preparing to become a Lawyer me as a person trying to pursue my dreams will be to get better with my people skills so that I will have more clients and not have a lot of people against me in practice. I can also use my persuading strategies to recommend people to my practice without saying bad things about other practices.

1. Create an applied research project. a. Identify what type of applied analysis you would be conducting (process evaluation, outcome evaluation, needs assessment, or combination of any of these). This is a needs assessment analysis that targeted an old model of issuing identification cards to abuse victims trying to leave their abuser, which was problematic because of the time it took to issue the cards and the methods it employed requiring the victims to prove who they are. This assessment, evaluation of an old government model was to determine if the new model was more effective than the old model for this particular program and if the officials tasked with issuing new and or replacement identification to the women and their families
I would like to obtain a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice so that I can become a Corrections Counselor. I chose the criminal justice field so that I can help those within the system gain the skills necessary to turn their lives around and become successful citizens in the community. Inmates who want to get out of the system need encouragement and support without judgment; they just don’t have the tools that they need. Getting my degree will help me to reach my goal, to assist prisoners with the tools that are required to help them work on aggression, anger and communication skills. For inmates that didn’t graduate from high school, I will assist them to get a GED, and encourage them to take an assessment test to see which job would be
You can attend a CNA school, community college certificate program, or get training through a local medical facility. The important thing to look for is a school that meets state requirements so you will be eligible to take the state licensing examination. For instance, a situation you want to think twice about is a local nursing home that offers its own nursing assistant training so you can work in their facility. This program might limit your job duties and restrict you to working in just the one facility since your training won 't be recognized elsewhere. If you go through private training at a nursing home or other healthcare facility, be sure it qualifies you for the state exam, so you 'll be free to work anywhere in the state once you have
