Question description

Due Week 7 and worth 150 points

Use your state's Department of Corrections Website, as well as the Strayer Library, to research the roles of correctional staff within the correctional organization.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Distinguish between administrative staff, program staff, and custodial staff; and discuss the importance of each.
  2. Rank the four (4) types of power available to correctional staff in order of importance (one [1] being the most important, four [4] being the least important). Provide a rationale for your ranking.
  3. Prioritize the following corrections staff concerns, with one (1) being the most important and four (4), the least important: funding, radical inmates, multi-generations, and mental health issues in order of importance. Speculate on the major impact, whether negative or positive, that each concern will have on corrections staff overall. Justify your response.
  4. It is widely known that corrections personnel often experience “compassion fatigue” or the reduced capacity to be empathetic of an offender’s circumstance. Speculate on both the reason for such indifference and the long term consequence of such behavior. Provide a rationale for your response.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
