CRIMINAL JUSTICE AGENCIES (LIKE ALL ORGANIZATIONS) SHOULD HAVE WELL-DEFINED MISSION AND VISION STATEMENTS.
Criminal justice agencies (like all organizations) should have well-defined mission and vision statements. This week's discussion includes only one question but that question has three distinct parts. You must provide a thorough response to each part to receive full credit.
1. Please do some research and locate a mission or vision statement of a criminal justice agency that you believe is good. What makes it good?
2. Then locate a mission or vision statement that you believe is inadequate or outdated. How could it be improved?
3. Based on the current state of the country, please develop what you believe would be an ideal mission or vision statement for a criminal justice organization.
If you are part of a criminal justice organization, you may use your own mission or vision statement or select one from another agency.
