1. Why have you chosen the elective classes included in your degree plan? Because it will be good for me to learn everything I need to know about criminal justice to become a great police officer or corrections officer. I will learn stuff that I need to know about before I go in to it. And I think it will be good having the knowledge of knowing stuff instead of not having a college education and not knowing what I’m getting myself in to.
2. What skills and knowledge do you expect to learn from these classes?
The skills and knowledge I expect to learn in these classes are criminal behavior, why they did what they did, pretty much criminal profiling, I expect to learn about the basic police procedures /operations of how the officers arrest and pull people over and what all do the police officers have to do if they would have to appear in court. I want to learn about what all I have to do through the training process of getting hired. And if I become a corrections officer I want to know what all I have to do, if I’ll be in the room alone with the inmates? What will I have to protect me, if something goes wrong? What training will I have to have to be a corrections officer? I want to learn all of this because I think it will help me to have a better understanding in what I’ll be doing in this type of work field.
