Transcript of Socialization Presentation

Finally Socialization is the process in which an agent of
the criminal justice profession is taught and learns
the norms and values of the organization they work
for. Informal and formal training will be important
to cover all the different aspects of what is valuable
to the organization. Formal training being a "book"
training process and being told what to do and believe. Informal training could be working alongside a veteran on an average day for them. Socialization will also include learning from peers the values of the organization. Unfortunately, there may be negative things learned during the socialization process but if this is addressed during the formal training perhaps a bad situation could be avoided. Identify the Socialization Process Socialization Process Values, attitudes, motives, opinions, perceptions, norms, and beliefs are what can make up a culture. Peer influence, common interests, reciprocal expectations and social interaction is what can be the reasoning behind why people take the actions that they do. Shared understanding and shared perspectives can be what forms a social group. Identify problems in the socialization
process- police The socialization process in police agencies can be an issue if the values and attitudes learned during training are negative and unethical. Most police officers will fall in the the habits (good or bad) of their peers in the police academy. This type of training can give a new officer the wrong impression about what the values and norms of the police agency are. Community Expectations As a community and seeing things on the outside the socialization process expectations would be a smooth process with little to no flaws. The reality is that it does not always happen this way. Police and corrections are two areas of the criminal justice system that the community relies on heavily to do a good job dealing with crime in our communities and those that commit it. The flaws come in with corruption and greed. Problems in the socialization process for
corrections Similar to the police socialization, corrections deal with the different subcultures between the rookies and the veteran employees. Inmates can sometimes see the socialization process and if they detect vulnerability this may be an opportunity for the inmate to take advantage of a new employee of the organization so it is important that in the training process they teach that one must not show any weakness or vulnerability. Strategies for Socialization 1. Collective Socialization
2. Individual Socialization
3. Sequential Socialization
4. Serial Socialization
5. Divestiture Socialization
6. Investiture Socialization
All of these are training methods both as an individual and in a group setting. By using these six methods of socialization will offer proper preparation for beginning one's career in the criminal justice field.
