David Gray CJUS 200 Application Essay 2-15-14 Can you seize the marijuana plants at that time? If yes, what is your legal justification for doing so? If no, what legally prohibits you from doing so? No, as a police officer you would not be able to seize the marijuana plants at this time, by doing so you would be violating the rights of the citizens of the house that was entered due to the noise ordinance. Actually, the fourth amendment would actually keep you from doing so because it states that “every citizen right to be free from unreasonable government intrusion into their persons, homes, businesses, and property –whether through police stops of citizens on the street, arrests, or searches of homes and businesses”.

County and Metropolitan councils are responsible for services across the whole of a county or city, like education, transport services, planning, fire and public safety, social care, libraries, waste management and trading standards for their area. Parish (Borough) councils cover a smaller area, often a town or rural area, and are usually responsible for services such as rubbish collection and recycling, council tax collection, leisure services and housing.

Community Corrections Barb Vorachek University of Phoenix (Axia) CJS/230 Theresa Degard 12/11/11 Community Corrections The goals of community corrections are to contribute to public safety, and reduce future criminal conduct (Martin, 2006). Community corrections are a big part of the criminal justice system. Community corrections are a form of punishment that an offender can receive to serve time in the community, instead of serving it in jail. There are many forms of community corrections it does not only involve probation and parole. Other forms include community service and house arrest (Foster, 2006).
The high likelihood of detection by the police, and the deterrent effects of punishment have been seen as forms of crime prevention. But the traditional criminal justice agencies have prevention as a sort of side effect or unintended consequence of their main aim of detection and punishment. And they are, as we have seen in previous lectures, not that efficient. Specific measures aimed at preventing crime have always been around in an everyday sense. Families, schools and communities disapprove of crime and this acts as a form of 'informal social control' People lock their doors and windows against burglars, and perhaps avoid badly lit areas, or certain parts of town, with the intention of reducing the likelihood of victimisation.
Mandatory recycling often refers to programs by which the citizens are obliged to separate trash from the recycling products but, also other measures like paying a solid fee or fine if you want to throw away some materials that could possibly be recycled. For example, San Francisco has provided a law that obliges its citizens to separate bins in blue, recyclable materials in black and others non recyclable in different color. In this way this State is aiming “Zero waste by 2020” policy which refers to prevention of waste, reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible by the end of 2020. Furthermore, the government of the state is permanently investing in increasing the awareness of community through different channels such as: social media, direct advertisements, training, door-to-door contacts or sample letters emphasizing the importance of recycling for the environment. But what is their direct ease on enforcing this law?
Explain how the state in which you work affects the policies of your local government. The local government is part of the working environment. However, many entities within the local government directly impact the manner in which the organization functions. For example, the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce consistently works to address public policy issues and support legislation that alters the manner in which the organization meets public need (“Legislative” 2006). This has been accomplished in the area of housing, environment and in relation to schools in the last two years.
