Imagine yourself as the director of a large Community Supervision and Corrections Department (probation) and you have decided that your department’s position is to NOT arm the community supervision officers. This does not mean that they cannot carry mace as a tool for self-defense, but no one will carry handguns on their person and none will not be permitted to be used in conjunction with their job. In 3 to 5 pages utilizing proper APA format (an example is provided for your reference and use), not including the cover sheet and reference page, you are to strongly present your position to your department personnel. Your paper must reflect your conviction with all the reasons not to arm your probation officers. Your position is to include, but not limited to the following: Liability to the department and to the individual officer involved in a shooting. Reduces required training and continuous annual weapons training. Eliminates the oversight of all logistical matters that deal with weapons qualification and continuous weapons training. Eliminates weapons safety issues in the office. No longer requires the ability to have in place the requirement to provide psychological counseling that would be required if an officer did shoot and kill a probationer. There are other issues that you will probably think of or you can do the research and locate more reasons that support why there are numerous agencies, across the country, that do not arm their officers. Your paper is to adamantly and fully support your position with as many reasons as you can justify.
