These are two separate assignments
In your position as a parole officer, you feel as if you are making a difference in a persons life. You knew that you would never be a police officer and here, you feel that you have more power than a police officer and you have a great criminal justice career. The Chief Probation Officer wants you to give a presentation concerning the topics and questions listed below, but first, she wants you to submit a paper of 23 pages containing a discussion of the topics and questions listed below.
The constitutional rights of prisoners may be held in abeyance during the time they are on probation or parole. They do not have the opportunity to interact with others who are also on probation and parole. The inmate, although on probation or parole, is still under the care, control, and custody of the department of corrections. One of the stipulations of his or her parole may be to refrain from interaction or contact with any other person who is a known felon. Why is this?
What if this person whom he or she is contacting was a family member? Why can some material that would normally be forbiIDen under the exclusionary rule be used to return a prisoner to prison or jail? See the example of the Pennsylvania Board of Probations vs. Scott. Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.
Common Assignment: Prepare a written analytical report (3-4 pages) on a juvenile delinquency treatment program in your community or any community of your choice. You were asked by the government to assess the juvenile delinquency program you selected in order to reform the existing program and perhaps aID a few new ones. The government wants to increase reliance on alternative to incarceration programs, but needs to know if the current program is working. The government is thinking about aIDing more community programs, counseling, and after-school jobs for older juveniles.
What is the name of the program you are assessing?
Where is the program located?
Have there been any studies completed on the effectiveness of the program you are reviewing for the assignment? What were the results of these studies? If no studies were done, would this have been informative?
What (if any) positive impact is the program providing for the community and the delinquents?
Will the program help to curb juvenile delinquency? Why?
What are the negative aspects of the program you reviewed?
Give specific suggestions for improving the program (none is not an appropriate answer here, there are always manners in which programs can be improved).
Explain your reasoning for supporting or eliminating the program.
Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.
