7-1 discussion: limited versus wide discretion discussion topic

For this discussion, you will choose a career in criminal justice and analyze how the amount of discretion can impact the decision-making process for that career. You will describe instances in which wide and limited discretion are afforded, and give the benefits and drawbacks of different amounts of discretion. This discussion will help you consider how the amount of discretion impacts decision making. You will be faced with a similar task in Project Three, in which you will be analyzing two situations with varying amounts of discretion in the law enforcement field.

First, choose a criminal justice career from the State/Local Law Enforcement or Corrections sections of the Social Sciences career exploration page from mySNHU.

In your initial post, include the following:

  • State the career you chose.
  • Describe an instance in which wide discretion is afforded to the career, and explain how that may impact the decision-making process.
  • Describe an instance in which discretion may be limited to the career, and explain how that may impact the decision-making process.

In response to two of your peers, explain any additional benefits or drawbacks to having wide or limited discretion in their chosen career field. You may also want to describe any other instances in that career field in which the criminal justice professional is afforded wide or limited discretion, and how this may impact the decision-making process.

To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric document.
