Intervention as a comprehensive juvenile justice strategy

Intervention as a comprehensive juvenile justice strategy.

I understand that many students like to draw on experiences in answering question; however, there are ways to do it and be scholarly. Below is an example of how to write in third person while supporting your opinions with research. I will use a simple discussion of “Why do you think that the profession-wide fraternal bond of criminal justice is so strong?”  In addition, you can see how in-text citations are used as well as the reference list at the end. Your discussion posting should mimic this example. This is a very simple example but states an opinion and then research to back up this opinion.


From this criminal justice scholar practitioner’s perspective there is a mentality, within law enforcement, suggesting that police culture promotes solidarity or strong internal cohesion, loyalty, and distrust of others who are not officers. Subsequently, this mentality stems from the actual job functions of law enforcement. Carter (2002) and Cohen and Feldberg (1991) contend that police work requires loyalty to fellow officers precisely because officers are so dependent on one another in order to be effective within their jobs; thereby creating a type of sub-culture or “blue bond.” From a social learning perspective of this sub-culture, Cochran and Bromley (2003), Lersch and Mieczkowski (2005) and Shearing and Ericson (2005) argue that police behavior is learned through participation, instruction, and interaction with other officers. Moreover, Cochran and Bromley, and Paoline (2003) state attitudes, values, and norms are learned from training officers and other officers. According to Paoline (2001), this gives the police an us versus them perspective, which strengthens the bonds between officers. This suggests that police behavior is a part of individual socialization.
