Unit 7 Assignment Supervisory Practices in Criminal Justice Pro Denise Womer Case Study Jane Roberts Public Safety Officer

Public Safety Officer Jane Roberts got pregnant while on duty by her Field Training Officer, Andrew Tibbetts. Now she blames her supervisor, Sergeant Williams for the incident because he’s the one that paired her wit FTO Tibbetts, knowing he was known as a ladies’ man. She is threatening to obtain workers’ compensation since it occurred on duty, after contacting a lawyer over the pregnancy. There are several issues with the incident with PSO Jane Roberts, as well as the department and how it’s ran in terms of keeping employees.
Sergeant Williams paired Roberts with Tibbetts because he was one of the best field training officers he could pair her with and she held her own against other officers like him in terms of the flirting. He felt she could handle it and she completed with high marks on her training. Sergeant Williams could not have foretold

As a supervisor I feel that Sergeant Williams did not make a sound operational decision when he assigned PSO Roberts to FTO Tibbetts. According to our text,” good supervision is the result of the serious application of one’s knowledge about human behavior to the work situation. As a supervisor he was knowledgeable to the fact that FTO Tibbetts had a reputations a lady man and although in the past PSO. Roberts has done well with handling other interactions with male counterparts as a new employee she may feel vulnerable or pressured especially because she was on probation. The mistake was made in the beginning were Sgt. Williams partnering the two without sitting them each down separately and letting them know his expectations and the rules and aspect.

Accepting Real Life

...ACCEPTING REAL LIFE -Everything in life that we really accept undergoes a change- Accepting and blessing our circumstances is a powerful tool for transformation. In fact, this potent combination is a spiritual elixir that can work miracles in our lives. What is acceptance? Acceptance is surrendering to what is: our circumstances, our feelings, our problems, our financial status, our work, our health, our relationships with other people, the delay of our dreams. Before we can change anything in our life we have to recognize that this is the way it’s meant to be right now. For me, acceptance has become what I call the long sigh of the soul. It’s the closed eyes in prayer, perhaps even the quiet tears. It’s “all right,” as in “All right, You lead, I’ll follow.” And it’s “all right,” as in “Everything is going to turn out all right.” This is simply part of our journey. Over the years I have discovered that much of my struggle to be content despite outside circumstances has arisen when I stubbornly resisted what was actually happening in my life at the present moment. But I have also learned that when I surrender to the reality of a particular situation—when I don’t continue to resist, but accept—a softening in my soul occurs. Suddenly I am able to open up to receive all the goodness and abundance available to me because acceptance brings with it so much relief and release. It’s as if all the steam of struggle has been allowed to escape from life’s pressure......

The Gift of the Magi

...food. In the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” the characters Della and Aladdin share similarities and differences.         The first similarity I realized between the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” is that in both they have couples. Without these couples the story and movie wouldn’t be what they are. In the story “A Gift of the Magi”, the couple is Della and Jim. In the movie “Aladdin”, the couple is Aladdin and Jasmine. The difference between the two is one main character is a girl and the other is a boy. In the story “A Gift of the Magi”, Della is the main character. In the movie “Aladdin” the main character is Aladdin.         The second similarity I realized between the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” is that both couples are in love. Both of these couples are in love with one another at some point in time. The difference between the two is one has been in love since the beginning and the other falls in love by the end. In the story “A Gift of the Magi”, the couple is in love from the beginning of the story all the way to the end. In the movie “Aladdin”, the couple falls in love throughout the story. Love is a key component for everything that happens in the story/movie.         The third similarity I realized between the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” is that both characters give up something so that another character could receive something in return.

Accepting Cultural Differences in Muslims

...does not have a “church” to preserve and promote its beliefs. There is a great diversity among Muslims as there is among other religious communities in America. Because America is predominantly Judeo-Christian it is sometimes easier for Christians and Jews to practice their faith. American schools do not recognize Muslim holidays. Even such a simple task as attending Friday congregational prayer and taking a break to perform the salat during working hours are often difficult. Muslim culture has become prominent in coutries other than Islam. Countries that have a large Muslim following include Australia, Canada, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United Kingdom and United States. Accepting Cultural Differences in Muslims Since the tragedy of 9-11 a portion of American citizens are under the beliefs that all Muslims are terrorists. There are extremists in every religion but it appears that it is the Muslim faith that is categorized as the terrorist religion. Muslim stereotypes are perpetuated in every form of the media accompanied by gross misinformation about Islam and Muslims. Such misinformation often leads to discrimination and other acts of violence against Muslims. Some Americans are increasingly allowing the extremists of the Muslim faith to steer their beliefs of the culture as a whole. These Americans feel that their stereotypes are justified after the events of September, 2001 and more recently the attack on......

The Gift

...Ánalisis de “The Gift?” Título No es una declaración sino una pregunta que se integra bien en el cuento. De hecho, no solo crea el marco idóneo para la historia en total sino que también hace que pensemos en las razones de tener el regalo y su origen. Asunto Se trata de una chica que no entiende bien su capacidad de ser invisible. Esto se demuestra cuando en una ocasión su mamá la envió a comprar algo en crédito de Don Tacho y hasta el cierre de las actividades que no la vi. En otra ocasión fue con un amigo para preguntar acerca de la escolarización y la señora no la veía bien. Es obvio que quería ella que los otros personajes la vieran pero a lo largo del ensayo, siguió siendo invisible. Al fin, parece que lo que sentía y percibía fueron real debido a las acciones de los personajes. Clasificación Creemos que es un ensayo filosófico porque pone un tesis para la consideración del lector: ʕCuándo fue la primera vez que me di cuenta de mi capacidad de hacerme ser invisible? Le causa al lector de pensar críticamente de la idea del autor. Hay también un elemento de creación debido a la manera de escribir. Anima el autor el cuento por el uso del narrativo que parece real y que provoca algunos recuerdos. Método Por mayor parte, creemos que es una estructura externa. El autor usó el narrativo principalmente – nos cuenta de lo que ocurrió pero se da cuenta de la existencia del argumento para apelar a los sentimientos del lector: “It was as if I erased myself, or was it......

Gift Giving

...Gift Giving The human service field is a field of helping. When people are helping people, it is natural and in some cultural cases, required to offer gifts of appreciation. There are many fine lines that divide the boundaries of gift giving within the helping industry. The value of the gift must be considered, the policies of the agency that a helper is employed by as well as the expectations that could potentially be attached to that gift. Some agencies have policies that avoid this dilemma all together and state absolutely no gifts will be given or received from clients. Other agencies will state that in order to avoid any insults or culture disrespect, a helper is allowed to receive a gift and ensure the client that the agency thanks them and the gift will be shared with the staff. Gifts from clients can have many or no strings attached. Some gifts come genuinely from the heart and are simply a cultural way of thanking someone for their help. Other clients however could have an ulterior motive behind the gift and consider the acceptance of the gift from the helper an indication that their relationship just took a step in a different direction. Whether or not a helper has permission to accept a gift, they must have the knowledge and capability to identify the boundaries of each client and the gift. In the revised version of the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics, it states in section A.10.f. “Counselors understand the challenges of accepting gifts from......

Gift for Tt

...During Dickens time gift giving for Christmas was not a wide spread practice as there was not much gift giving in the novel. If I were to give a gift to Scrooge, Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit they would have to be something they would need and use, but they would also have to be Throughout the novel there are scenes where Tiny Tim is limping around on his legs with a crutch. If I were to give him a Christmas gift during his time, it would have to be a wheelchair. A wheelchair would surely solve some of Tiny Tim's problems and allow him to be more mobile then what he was with his limp and crutch. Tiny Tim would most likely have a lot of pain removed if he was able to sit in a wheelchair rather then limping with a crutch. Throughout England, much money and energy were being devoted to medical care and its study. It was also a time where identification, classification and description of diseases were more widespread. The first wheelchair was not as modern as the ones available today, however I am sure the early wheelchairs, sometimes called invalid chairs, would make a great gift. Scrooge is a very mean and uncaring person, as shown throughout the novel. He is a man for whom Christmas is a humbug. He doesn't seem to care about anything or anybody, most likely due to not ever having anyone to love or care for. For Christmas I would have to give Scrooge a dog; one that is totally devoted to his master. If......

Gift Tax

...within 3 years of death. Under Section 2035(a), nothing is included in Decedent’s gross estate, because it’s a cash gift. However, under Section 2035(b), the amount of the gross estate shall be increased by the amount of any tax paid on any gift made by the decedent during the 3-year period ending on the date of the decedent’s death. So the amount of gift tax of this gift the decedent paid is included in his gross estate. (b) What is the result in question (1)(a), above, if Decedent gave Child a life insurance policy on Decedent’s life worth $100,000, with a face value of $750,000, instead of cash? $750,000 is included in D’s gross estate, because the under section 2035(a)(1), the transfer was made within 3 years of the decedent’s death, and under 2035(a)(2), the value of such property would have been included in the decedent’s gross estate under section 2042.

Company Accepting a Contract

...CASE - Company Accepting a Contract A computer company was negotiating a very large order with a large size corporation. They had a very good track record with this client. In this corporation, five different departments had pooled their requirements and budgets. A committee was formed which had representation from all the departments. The corporation wanted the equipment on a long lease and not outright purchase. Further, they wanted the entire hardware and software form one supplier. This meant that there should be bought – out items from many suppliers since no one supplier could meet all the requirements of supply from its range of products. The corporation provided an exhaustive list of very difficult terms and conditions and pressurized the vendors to accept. The computer company who was finally awarded the contract had agreed to overall terms that were fine as far as their own products were concerned but had also accepted the same terms for the brought – out items. In this case, the bought – out items were to be imported through letter of credit. The percentage of thebought – out items versus their own manufacture was also very high. One of the terms accepted was that the “system” would be accepted over a period of 10 days after all the hardware had been linked up and software loaded. The computer company started facing trouble immediately on supply. There were over 100 computers over a distance connected with one another with software on it. For the acceptance......

The Gift of the Magi

...“The Gift of the Magi” (1906) remains one of the most recognizable and frequently anthologized stories in American literature. In its time the tale was extremely popular, both commercially and critically, and O. Henry was called the “Yankee Maupaussant.” Today the story is considered juvenilia and has not garnered much serious critical attention. “The Gift of the Magi” initially appeared in one of O. Henry's best-known collection of stories, The Four Million, which was published in 1906. Plot and Major Characters On Christmas Eve, a young married woman named Della has cut and sold her long, beautiful hair to earn the rest of the money she needs for her husband's Christmas present: a platinum chain for his treasured watch. When her husband, Jim, returns to their apartment, he is shocked to see her hair gone; he has sold his watch to buy her a pair of tortoise-shell combs for her long hair. Touched by his thoughtfulness, Della assures him that her hair will grow back and she gives him the watch chain. When he sees the gift, he lovingly tells her that he has sold his cherished watch to buy her the combs for her hair. The story concludes with an omniscient narrator praising the sacrifice and love of the young couple. Major Themes Critics have noted the irony of the young couple sacrificing their most treasured possessions—Della's hair and Jim's watch—in order to buy each other gifts related to those same possessions. Poverty is also a prominent theme, as Della saved......

The Gift of Sex

...Abstract The purpose of this paper is to summarize and then critique Clifford and Joyce Penner’s book, “The Gift of Sex, A Guide to Sexual Fulfillment”. In the Biblical perspective section of the book, the Penners express that sexuality and sexual intimacy are a gift from God, intended for married couples, to symbolize the one-ness God desires with mankind.

The Penners also discuss certain problems that may arise for a married couple in their sexual experiences and relationship. The last section of the book discusses the importance of enhancing the sexual experience in a marriage and suggests way to improve intimacy.   Sex is a beautiful gift from God to bring pleasure and intimacy to a married couple.

Spiritual Gifts

...Kendall Lucy THEO 201 – D17 Short Essay 3 Spiritual Gifts Logging in to facebook yesterday, I noticed that I had a message from an old friend that I had not seen since high school. She wanted to know if I would talk to her about spiritual gifts and answer some questions that were being debated in her church. She wanted answers to questions about spiritual gifts, the Fruit of the Spirit, speaking in tongues, and baptism in the Holy Spirit. I told her that I would share the biblical view of spiritual gifts. I sent her an email with the answers to her questions. Here is a part of the email that I sent to her. In 1 Corinthians 12, we learn that spiritual gifts are given to God’s people by the Holy Spirit for “the common good.” Verse 11 says the gifts are given according to God’s sovereign will. Ephesians 4:12 tells us these gifts are given to prepare God’s people for service and for building up the body of Christ. While there are different kinds of gifts (1 Corinthians 12:4), spiritual gifts are God-given graces meant for works of service. There are two major evidences of the baptism in the Holy Spirit. The outward evidence is speaking with tongues. Further evidence of the Spirit’s abiding presence in our lives is the Fruit of the Spirit, which Paul mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23. A spiritual gift is an ability to be used in service, whereas spiritual fruit relates to a Christian’s character. ......

The Best Gift

...Gifts Gift is defined as the transfer of something from a one to another person without the expectation of a payment from the receiver. The idea of gifts is to make others happier or to erase sadness from their face. This essay will include the reasons of giving a gift, the anniversaries that’s required a gift and how I felt about a gift that I received. First, gifts are a wonderful thing. It makes relationships get fonder and ease the pain. Gifts could be given for forgiveness or a way to show kindness. Also, it motivates people to achieve their goals if they were promised to receive a present due to their efforts. As an example, my dad used to motivate us to focus on school and do our best to achieve high grades. He knew that if he promised us with something that we want to have eagerly, the result by then will be success for both of us. Second, I have grown up in a family that appreciates the meaning of gifts. There are many anniversaries that`s required a gift. For example, my sister has got married, I bought for her a beautiful necklace and then she got pregnant and gave birth to a little angel, so I gave her a little lovely dress for her daughter to show how much am happy to be an uncle. Also, graduation from high school is a huge thing towards a one future. Therefore, every person graduate from high school, his family blows a nice party for him and he receives a lot of nice gifts from the people who loves him. My dad got me the best gift ever, it was a car.......

Gift Love

...pursued over time. Opinion has differed as to how happy we can expect to become in this mixed up world, and as to what goals and purposes in life really deliver on happiness. I wish to say that I have not always been a happy person, despite my ability to seem to make those around me happy. The key spiritual secret of any happier and healthier life is the deeper kindness that can be captured with the term "Gift-love," a term borrowed from C.S. Lewis. We are all too often obsessed in life with what Lewis termed "Need-love," loving and seeking the things we need, from good food to a decent coat for the winter. We certainly all need and seek to be loved, for if we do not receive love we will not be able to give it away. Yet even when we pursue the things we need, it is often not just for ourselves, but for the nearest and dearest who depend on us. This points to the other side of life, to “Gift-love”, a sincere love of others that is commonly taught by exhortation but is really transmitted by example. My thesis, more clearly stated, is that as a side-effect or by-product of Gift-love we generally feel happier and are healthier over the whole of a life. This thesis is old, but it can be forgotten, so it bears repeating from time to time. Indeed, it echoes in literature over the generations. Henry David Thoreau wrote that love is "the only investment that never fails." Abraham Lincoln stated, "When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion."......

Accepting Personal Responsibility

...Accepting Personal Responsibility GEN/200 Accepting Personal Responsibility Responsibility is a big part of growing up and very meaningful. As children dreams are images of something big for the future. To be a doctor, fire man, nurse, veterinarian, a teacher, a wife, and mother. To accomplish these dreams we need to understand responsibility, study and plan our lives to make a dream happen. Personal responsibility is accepting what exist in life, behavioral, and actions. Freedom is a choice and because you have chosen every circumstance in life you are responsible for the decision that you have made regardless if it has been success, failure, happiness, and unhappiness. In Living a Life of Meaning and Purpose “Harpo’s Blues written and sung by Phoebe Snow has a line that goes. “I hate to be a grownup and have to live my life in pain.” (University of Phoenix, Ethics Games). As adults there are choices for ethical behavior, to be fair, responsible and honest towards yourself and the community. Grown ups that are in pain chose to be pain they either hate where there career path is heading to or because they chose to be miserable. They get so involved in work or studies and exclude everyone from the real world. While in the process of losing control they lose respect, dignity, and their ethical values in the community and in themselves. The relationships between personal responsibility and college success have the same concept wanting happiness,......

The Gift of the Magi

...The Gift of the Magi Ashlee Stevens ENG125: Introduction to Literature Amy Sloan September 10, 2012 Ashford University The Gift of the Magi The Gift of the Magi was about sacrificial love. The story explained how important it is to be willing to sacrifice for the one that you love. No matter what the circumstance, if a person can unselfishly give of themselves for another, they can experience life in a whole new way. Many people give what is not important to them and makes no difference. I think the term “it’s the thought that counts” has been used to justify just giving anything to a person without actually put your heart and soul into the gift you are giving. O. Henry uses The Gift of the Magi to demonstrate the importance of expressing your love through sacrifice. O. Henry uses setting throughout the whole story to show the reader how little Mr. and Mrs. James Dillingham Young have. In the first paragraph the reader already has a sense of how meager their living conditions are when Della has counted the one dollar and eighty-seven cents three times. He explains the lengths she went through to save that much money, and sixty cents of it was all pennies. He does not immediately describe their way of living all at once. He draws it out through the whole story so the reader never loses the sense of the struggle that Della and James are living in. In the second paragraph he says that she flopped down on the “shabby little couch”.......
