Imagine that you are a rookies police officer. You are assigned to work with a veteran who is helping you understand the criminal justice system. Create a script of a conversation with your partner. Use the key terms in the script.
*talks to herself* I need to find out more about the criminal justice system, but I don't know who to go to... I need this information in order to become a successful police officer.
Officer Venzen, I need you to pick up a report from the Superior Court. Bring the rookie along with you as well!
No problem Chief Petersen!
I'm ready Officer Venzen! *talks to herself again* This would be the perfect moment to ask everything that I need to know about the criminal justice system.
Hey Officer James! Chief instructed me to take you along with me to pick up a report.
Well, I was and I wanted to know more about police officers dealing with crimes.
I kind of overheard you talking to yourself back there. Is everything okay?
Yes, you are correct in the case of police officers handling crimes, but that's not all we do. We protect and serve the citizens of their society. Since that is your focus, I will describe a couple of crimes to you.
Before you start Officer Venzen, what do you consider crime to be?
Well, Officer James, a crime is an act against the public good. The punishment of a crime can result in fine, imprisonment, and/or death.
