What is meant by program alignment in criminal justice?
The initial program alignment process was to align Corrections and Criminal Justice. [ After meetings between the two parties, the alignment was separated into two distinct Corrections programs with Criminal Justice (Police Science) pursuing their own program alignment. This separation was communicated to participating colleges by KBOR on July 9, 2010 in their Communiqué for the Corrections
Alignment Map. The following information was provided in this Communiqué:
Two distinctive types of corrections programs exist within the state: (1) programs preparing individuals for jobs in local communities as parole officers and (2) programs preparing individuals for jobs as Kansas correctional officers. This alignment focuses on the latter of the two programs, which prepares individuals to become correctional officers for the Kansas Department of Corrections.
