Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper on present-day challenges for criminal justice administrators.
Select a functional role in one of the three major areas of criminal justice administration–corrections–and describe what you consider the major issues and satisfactions of that particular role. Do not write about corrections officers generally, courts generally, or police generally; this assignment is to describe issues that administrators of one of the major areas of criminal justice have. Please note that there are significant differences between administrators and supervisors. Administrators are executive-level positions such as court administrators, police chiefs and assistant chiefs, sheriffs and chief deputies, and wardens of correctional institutions. These positions usually oversee the development and execution of agency budgets along with the operations of the agency as a whole. Do not describe roles played by deputy court clerks, sergeants, or other supervisory positions.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines and use a minimum of four peer-reviewed sources no older than 10 years that discuss criminal justice in the United States to support your analysis. Additional resources are highly recommended. Fonts must be Arial or Times New Roman, 10pt or 12pt.
