CLASSMATE’S POST

My future career plans will be found in the Parole Officer division. One of the tasks that I know I will have to deal with on a daily basis is figuring out different ways to help an ex-offender reenter into society while becoming an active law-abiding citizen. This course has been very helpful with understanding the different types of methods used to evaluate the criminal mind. I know that no two criminals are the same when it comes to their thought process. When they have completed their time in prison they will not be accustomed to the freedoms that they are about to be a part of and will need time to adjust.

One of my greatest goals will be to do all that I can to keep them from returning to prison. This course has demonstrated that it is possible if the ex-offender and society are willing to work together on the second chance that they have been given. Statistics in this course have shown that the environmental surroundings of the ex-offender will play a huge part in their rehabilitation. The social process theories discussed in this course will be beneficial in helping me critique the individual’s ability to adapt to the environment that he or she will be reentering into.

I spent a decade working in the corrections field and I can say that I truly enjoyed the time that I worked in this field. It was an area that I had always believed could be managed better, with certain changes. Most criminals are just thrown into prison to serve their time and then are released after their time has been served and are expected to become law-abiding citizens. The problem with this, is that most ex-offenders are not taught ways that will help them to become a productive citizen in society. I believe that parole officers need help from other institutions in the community to teach the ex-offender that they are worth the time to help them change for the better. If we will show them that they are capable and worthy of being treated like a human, it will possibly help them reestablish a new path to being productive in the society that they live in.
