Corrections Ethics

Option 4: Corrections Ethics
Correctional officers are often referred to as “the other inmates,” because the officers are in the facility working and may begin to feel like they are inmates. Research the role, duties, and subculture of correctional officers for this assignment.
Develop a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation.
 For assistance with this type of assignment, review these resources.
Address the following in your presentation:

1 –  What are some real-life examples of correctional officer misconduct? Do the ends justify the means in the examples you provided? Explain your rationale.

2 – To what do you attribute these violations—the personality of the guards, lack of training, or some other factor? How might these violations be deterred or prevented? Explain.

3 – Correctional facilities operate in relative secrecy and are like a society unto themselves because of an isolated location and the visitor restrictions. Moreover, if inmates complain, they       are often not believed or they are ignored. What safeguards might be employed to reduce or eliminate unethical activity within the correctional facility?

 List major points in the slides. Include detailed explanations in the speaker notes section that correlate to each point.

Include videos, audio, photos, diagrams, or graphs as appropriate.

Format your presentation consistent with APA guidelines.
