Are you your institution's Security Officer? If you are, you likely have had some involvement with your community's justice system -- and working within our nation's justice system can be a trying and unrewarding exercise if you don't know how it works. This presentation will show you the inner workings of the justice system -- and how you can use this system to resolve security issues more rapidly and effectively. This information will help you make appropriate decisions in the majority of circumstances that involve your potential interaction with our justice system's three (3) primary components:
  • Law enforcement (e.g., police, sheriff, marshal, FBI, IRS and Postal Inspector)
  • Courts (e.g., Small Claims, Justice, Municipal, Superior and U.S. District)
  • Corrections (e.g., probation and parole)
Like any democratic government process, our justice system provides for a system of checks and balances -- to ensure that power is shared among the components. The components don't always share the same goals and they often appear to be in conflict with one another. This is the result of our system being an "adversarial" one -- where everything is tested and nothing is taken at "face value" -- and every fact is validated before a representative of any of the components is permitted to act. It's a cumbersome and tedious system that is designed to prevent or identify potential mistakes before any harm is done. If you are your institution's Security Officer, you must become knowledgeable in dealing with these components -- and their related processes. Failure to understand how "the system" works may cost you and your institution unnecessary time, resources and money.
