Week 7 assignment – corrections officers: roles and challenges | CRJ 410 Corrections | Strayer University

 

To successfully complete this assignment, you will need to:

  • Refer to Chapter 9, “The Staff World: Managing the Prison Population,” in your Corrections in the 21st Century textbook.
  • conduct research on the role of corrections officers and the challenges they face.
  • Explore the Department of Corrections website for your state.
    • In your browser of choice, simply type the name of your state and department of corrections. For example: Minnesota Department of Corrections.

Corrections is one potential career option for people studying or working in the criminal justice field. According to the textbook authors, career opportunities exist as many states face a shortage of correctional officers. Likewise, staff turnover is high (Schmalleger, 2021).

Before making such an important decision to pursue this type of career, you’ll want to educate yourself on the major responsibilities required of this role and the challenges these officers face on a daily basis. This assignment will give you the opportunity to do just that by writing a 3–5 page research paper on the roles and challenges of correctional officers.
