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
burglary suppression officer is a normal patrol officer assigned to a
precinct and specific areas where burglaries are high. In the role of a
burglary suppression officer, communication is needed between the
burglary suppression Sergeant, burglary detective, and the district
attorney. Burglary suppression officers are usually in a team of seven
or six including the Sergeant.
and face to face communication are used to communicate effectively from
supervisor to officer to district attorney. These ways of
communication are used so the information is transferred effectively and
so that the officer understands his instructions.
everything that happens in the discipline of criminal justice happens
on paper first (Johnson, Rettig, Scott & Garrison, 2015). After
roll call, where we receive our face to face instructions, the
supervisor sends the officers and his superiors emails about what was
discussed in roll call so there would be written documentation about
what was said. Johnson et al (2015) explains that writing is the best
way to learn and the only purpose writing can have is to express what
you already know or think.
my experience, these ways of communication are effective because the
burglaries in the assigned areas decreased the following week and the
reports sent to the district attorney were written as instructed.
