a new correction professional (i.e. correction officer, probation
officer, addiction treatment specialist, etc.) discuss the skill set
required to handle the responsibilities in working in a particular area.
For example, you are working with an inmate on intensive supervision.
Your title is Probation Officer. What skills will you require to work
effectively with this inmate and remain in compliance with the rules of
the department? Review the reading material and think about what the
skills in terms you may need. Write in terms of a scenairo to present
for the position, the case/charges, individual special needs if any, and
expected outcomes. This is an opportunity to apply all you have
learned about alternatives to incarceration and current efforts toward
addressing the new approaches
