CRJ 301 Week 5 DQ 1 Competing for Limited
Check this A+ tutorial guideline at
In today's reality of shrinking budgets, states continue to look for
money that is not being effectively spent. State legislatures want to
ensure they are getting the most for their limited dollars. The legislature
has requested you to present an overview of an effective juvenile justice
alternative sentencing program that you are aware of from the text or
your research, and explain why it is effective and why it should be
funded. What is the intended population? What standard are you using
to measure the effectiveness? Why do you think it is effective and worthy
of continued funding?
Your colleague has made a presentation to the state legislature, and now
it is your turn. You are the director of an intervention strategy (before
your colleagues program) or a re-entry program (after your colleague's
program) that is also being looked at to help fund other priority
legislative programs. The legislature believes the juvenile justice system
is too soft on crime and we need to get tough on crime. For this
discussion, you may support either the rehabilitation camp or the get
tough on crime camp as you prepare your answer. Make sure you
address the social justice arguments based on your position. Build the
case for one of the following:
a. Ensure that your program is a complimentary program to that of your
classmate’s, but both programs are serving separate and distinct critical
populations. Both must be funded.
b. That the synergistic effect of the two programs together will result in
both programs being more effective in the long run, and, therefore,
enhancing social justice.
c. That your program is much more cost effective; it should be funded at
the expense of the program outlined by your colleague.
