Week 2 Discussion

YOU CAN CHOOSE THE ONE IN BOLD. I WORKED FOR A WOMEN’S PRISON IN LOUISIANA, LCIW(LOUISIANA CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTE FOR WOMEN, SGT POSITION)

Communication in Criminal Justice Roles

A police officer at the scene of an accident.
A parole officer meeting with an ex-offender.
A corrections officer in a prison.

All of the criminal justice professionals above use communication
skills, both written and verbal. Many of them also will likely use
presentation skills. Mastering various ways in which to communicate is
essential to most jobs, including many positions within the field of
criminal justice.

For this Discussion, select a role within the criminal justice field
that you may already have or one in which you might be interested in
the future. Review the media, “The Art of Effective Communication” to
identify ways in which communication can be used. Then consider how
communication can be used in the role you selected and why
communication is used in those ways. Also, consider whether the
communications you described are effective in the job specified or not.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a brief description of the criminal
justice role you selected and describe two ways in which communication
is used in that role. Then explain why communication is used in those
ways, including any goals that are intended to be met by the
communication. Finally, explain whether the communications you
described are effective in the job specified or not. Be specific and
provide examples to illustrate your point.
