It is the goal of each individual to prosper in both academic and in life skills. Having attained my first degree, I feel that I still have the chance to further my academics in order to successfully achieve my academic goals. The field of criminology and justice has been feared by many individuals due to the amount of commitment and dedication that is required of an individual. This field of study requires that law enforcement officers first understand the guidelines stipulated within the country’s law in order to be in a position of maintaining law and order.
My first degree was in criminal justice which left me within the mandate of ensuring that the citizens remained within the stipulations of the law, as well as making sure they behaved in manners that did not collide with their neighbors. The first degree enhanced my understanding of some criminal justice specifications and these tools have helped me to reach the current level of a law enforcement officer.
Human beings have different goals and aspirations. Mine are oriented towards education. Despite having extensive field experience, there is still an urge to push further my academic aspirations in order to comprehensively attain the best in terms of academics. I intend to join the graduate school in order to further learn about the criminal justice and its implications within the society. This will offer a better chance of interacting with college students in order to come up with a better explanation of the implications of the field.
Criminal justice requires that individuals become conversant with both the federal and the community-based laws in a country. With this information in mind, one is in a position to learn well. Under such circumstances, there is a need to further one’s understanding of the same concept in order to improve one’s ability to interpret the present laws and statutes.
Criminal justice is a broad field of study and my choice to pursue a post graduate in the same is inspired by the fact that our country is in great shortage of students with specifications in the field. This means that, even the law enforcement officers are not in a position to further their studies due to the presence of a shortage of teachers on the same. For this reason, I aspire to become part of our country’s teaching staff and offer my services to the college students. This will improve my services to the community since, not only will I be sharing the information I know about criminal justice, but also helping in making the citizens aware of the laws and statutes governing our country.
My experience as a law enforcement officer has helped me to gain both theoretical and practical skills in the field. With this experience, I feel am better prepared to go back to school in order to improve my class and outside-class skills in the field of criminal justice.
During my working period, I have engaged myself in conflict resolution and ensuring that the community lived in peace. This has influenced my understanding of the need to have a more peaceful community where each person acted as his or her brother’s keeper. For twenty three years, I have relentlessly worked as a police supervisor and I believe that a post graduate education would enhance my skills and qualifications of becoming a college tutor. This would then help me to spread the knowledge I have both within and outside the classroom setting.
As a law enforcement supervisor, I was in a position of seeing people change from their bad behaviors and stay as per the expectations of the society. Morals and values were part of my pursuit and through these aspects, I was in a position to see the knowledge gap that was required to be filled among the colleges. I strongly believe that given a chance to be part of the post graduate program, I will be in a position of changing the society through sharing my knowledge with the college students on matters related to criminal justice.
