Week 4 Discussion
Culture in Criminal Justice
Many criminal justice organizations are burdened with a culture of silence, an adversarial outlook, and alienation and distance from the people they are sworn to serve.
For this Discussion, select a component organization–corrections, policing, parole and probation, or the courts. Consider the effects of the organization’s culture on its performance.
Post by Day 3 an explanation of the concept of culture in criminal justice. Describe two positive and two negative aspects of culture in the criminal justice organization you have chosen. Describe two challenges in changing ingrained culture in these organizations.
