Question and answer
How do you feel about police departments having union protection versus not having union protection?
There are pros and cons to police departments having union protection. Labor unions can help their members by negotiating collectively for wages and benefits that are often better than individuals could negotiate on their own. [ A con could be that strikes make union members look greedy, especially if they are in a high-earning job compared to many other workers. ]

What is one pending criminal justice related bill on something in which interests you such as gangs, domestic violence, etc.
Weegy: Hiring new police was just the first challenge. [ The Department of Justice has worked closely with police and sheriffs departments across the country to provide the necessary training and technical assistance as they bring on new officers in order to develop effective community police programs. The Department of Justice helps local law enforcement agencies transition into community policing, target specific crimes, work in partnership with their communities, develop community support for new policing strategies, and deploy new strategies to target youth firearms violence, school violence, gangs, domestic violence and neighborhood-specific crime problems. ] (More)

How, as a criminal justice professional would you be influential in the process of making law and in what way is a criminal justice agency influential in the process of making law
Weegy: Citizens affect criminal justice policy through interest groups. Representatives of interest groups lobby lawmakers to pass legislation favoring the interests of the groups they represent. [ Michael Hallett and Dennis Palumbo, criminal justice scholars, discovered that many big and powerful interest groups get involved in legislative lobbying at the federal level. The American Bar Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, and business groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have the most influence at this level. Some single-issue groups, such as the National Rifle Association (NRA), also exercise political clout on certain issues. At the state level, Hallett and Palumbo point out, criminal justice policy is made by small numbers of influential state legislators, administrators of criminal justice agencies, and representatives of criminal justice professionals. Interest groups having the most influence are those representing police and prosecutors. ] (More)
