[ORDER SOLUTION] Variety of Implantation Strategies
Using a variety of implantation strategies and intervention techniques, the student will select an evidence-based or evidence-informed recidivism reduction program for implementation in a correctional facility/agency. The student will provide an overview of the program selected, the evidence of the programs general effectiveness (found in their research), cost benefits, and an implementation plan (including staff training and an implementation schedule). The paper should be 15-20 pages in length. Please see attached document for grading guidance.The Topic I am interested in is Peer Court:The background for this is that research has shown that sometimes the best individuals who can influence or better judge individuals on their actions are peers of their own, Kids can stray off track and do criminal acts or act out aggressively, and sometimes its because they have no friends or role models to keep them on the right track. The best judgment of character and punishment are kids their own age because they can relate better than some judge who sometimes isn’t looking at the person but the act and even want to put them in jail before seeking other alternatives.Guidelines for the Peer Court:- Punishments are dished out by the Peers in the court and not by a judge but the decision still has to be run by a judge for final approval- Individual on trial can plead their case to the court of their peers- Once a verdict has been reached unanimously by their peers judge hands out their verdict which must be followed by the individual. If they do not follow the verdict/punishment handed out they will be then turned over to the original court system for state-appointed judgment.- Defendant will be advised from the start that once he/she enters the peer court and a verdict is handed out it will not appear on their juvenile record but kept on file in case they slip up it then will be placed in their permanent file for record-keeping- The peer court will only handle low-level offenses (i.e. fighting, small drug possessions, car jacketing, robbery w/o weapon, and other low-level criminal offenses)- When judgment is handed out the individual’s parents or guardian are required to be with them when conducting their community service work. Thus also holding the parents accountable for their kid’s actions (sometimes parents don’t seem to realize that they are the first influence in their kid’s lives and need to take a more active role in their lives instead of just letting them do what they want).- The individuals who can directly refer the troubled teens to Peer Court are police officers since they are the first to see the teens upon apprehension or inside the system and see who really can benefit from the program.Overall kids don’t need to be in the juvenile justice system and judged too harshly when all they need is a chance to be better and who better to motivate them to be better than peers of their own.
