Having officers who can double as educators will help kids relate and spend time with these officers making it more likely for them to ask for help in times of need. Without an escalation of police officers in schools we cannot assume that the students will take it upon themselves to solve these problems and more likely they will become worse over time. “In the 2009-2010 school year alone 1,183,700 violent crimes were committed at American public schools according to the department of education and department of justice. Many of these violent crimes have gone unreported to police.”(cnsnews.com) These crimes include rape, sexual battery other than rape, physical attack, fights, and robbery with or without weapons. These bone chilling crimes committed by these youths and young adults could be lessened if not completely stopped by police escalation in these institutions.
Having a family with young adults, I am busy both before and after work. This makes it necessary to schedule my time efficiently. I work full time, so that takes most of my time during the day. I set a time aside every evening to complete school work, which usually takes place after personal commitments are taken care of. Focusing on time management helps motivate me in completing my tasks at hand and keeping organized helps with this
Unit 6 Project: Troubled Youth Vulnerable in Crime HN200 November 23, 2011 The specific populations I feel is vulnerable in terms of crime are troubled youth. I chose this group for a few different reasons. The first reason is based off the statistics in the text showing a much higher percentage of 15 -17 age group pertaining to arrest rates over adults. This is dealing with violent crimes in the U.S. Secondly youth are easily influenced and will do almost anything to fit in, even if it means committing or being involved with crime. Sometimes youth that had a troubled home, then continue the vicious cycle with other troubled teens on the run, streets, and in gangs.
According to the Beaverton Police Department (2008), the Beaverton Youth Peer Court is designed to give youths the opportunity to participate in the criminal justice system as well as to provide a cause and affect system for them to understand and accept responsibility for their actions. Beaverton Youth Peer Court is a program designed for youths who have committed crimes of a misdemeanor or violation for the first time and are judged through a court system of their own peers.

The deviant stands trial, after admission of guilt to be sentenced by their peers. In effort to make the program a success the Beaverton Police Department, adult volunteers who work in the legal field as well as teen-age volunteers who are interested in working and learning the legal system with hands on experience.
University of Phoenix Crime Causation and Diversion paper CJA/374 Crime Causation and Diversion Paper There are many more juveniles in society today involving themselves in some form of illegal activity.

There are many reasons which explains how this program has allowed a foundation that helps me to be a good citizen, and to be a youth leader in my community. Primarily, they teach me the morals and the ethical values that a citizen should have. The values and morals that they teach me, are: healthy, strength, and endurance, which sustain emotional health and conceptual abilities under prolonged stress.

SHC-31 1.1 Identify the different reasons people communicate. I think that an effective communication is an essential part of working with children, their families and work colleagues. One of the very important rules of my code of practice is to communicate with everyone clearly, honestly and effectively.

Great relationships between members of staff will positively influence our work with children/their parents and also will create a nice athmosphere and a great role modeling for them.
Stephanie Corona Mrs. Wallace English 2 Honors February 22, 2013 Gun Control & School Safety There are many important issues being faced by our nation today, but one of the most important issues facing the nation in the news today is school safety and gun control. This has been a controversy for the past couple of weeks due to shootings that have occurred in schools and public areas. There are also people who say that guns should be banned for those reasons and those who disagree on this. In which I will discuss into further detail here. My perspective on this is that there should most definitely be more school safety and a higher gun control system.
In recent times, people have resorted to cyber bullying as there is a potential for a wider range of victims to inflict pain and suffering on as compared to the old-fashioned schoolyard bullying. This is because when victims are abused verbally, the victim might not remember every word the bully has said, but in the case of emails and text, chatrooms and websites the targeted students can read what the bully has said over and over again. Moreover, written words seem more concrete and real compared to spoken words.
I am empathetic and honest, something which I feel is very important when working in partnership with parents and carers, and I am also enthusiastic and creative which I believe are vital assets when working with young children. I hope that if I am successful in the application process and graduate with this foundation degree I can go on and apply to do a PGCE or BA. This will allow me to enhance my skills and help me to achieve my goal of becoming a competent and professional practitioner helping young children to develop into healthy, happy and well-rounded
