For this week’s assignment, you will write a 1-2 page essay about correctional officers in female institutions. Be sure to address all prompts and cite your sources in APA format. This is worth 80 points, so be thorough and give your best effort.
Correctional officers, regardless of gender, report they would rather not be employed in a female only institution. Many officers state they would rather work “bad” shifts or transfer to another type of work. This week’s individual paper will examine these issues and offer solutions.
After reviewing this week’s reading, discuss why neither men nor women want to work at a female correctional institution. What can be done to change the perceptions regarding female-only correctional institutions? Are these issues actually myth? In your opinion, can these issues be resolved? If you believe they can, discuss how they might be resolved. And if you do not believe they can be resolved, explain.
This assignment should be 1-2 pages in length. Your response must be thought provoking, have well developed ideas and/or opinions, and should reference any supporting material from the text or other sources you have used to complete the assignment.
