Discretionary Decisions in Criminal Justice
In this assignment, you will review three scenarios, one in each branch of the criminal justice field: law enforcement, courts, and corrections. You will then analyze the discretionary decisions that can be made to address each scenario.
In this module, you have learned about discretionary decisions made by criminal justice professionals. You will now apply this knowledge to analyze the potential repercussions of decisions made in the different branches of the criminal justice system. First, read each scenario in the Module Three Practice Activity Template. Identify the discretionary decision that must be made and the potential options. Next, describe what factors may impact the decision. Then, explain the possible repercussions of each choice, such as potential negative impacts, including the impact of making the wrong discretionary decision in regard to enforcement of law.
