If I got an opportunity I would also attend on site training with a licensed criminologist to be sure I'm ready. It would be helpful to have some schooling in sociology or psychology, as well.
I want to become a lawyer, specifically a family lawyer. Family lawyers deal with divorces, guardianships, prenuptial agreements, adoptions, parental rights and custody. Family lawyers are there to help make sure that everything goes smoothly and well when families are dealing with these hardships. Since dealing with this kind of things can be hard, family lawyers also help council the people are dealing with. Being a family lawyer will require long hours, due to the amount of work they put into the job.
The skills I would need to become a family lawyer would to be to go to law school. But first, I would get a degree in sociology with a miner in criminal justice. This way I can have a different outlook on how to deal with the problems I will be facing. I will also have to take a test called the LSAT. This test well determine if I can go to law school. After I finish law school I would have to pass a written bar exam. From there, I would have to be hired by a law firm. Then I would be able to start my practice and help the families that need help.
I want to become either a family therapist or something that has to do with helping kids in Juvenile hall. I want to major in Sociology and maybe minor in Criminal Justice because I have an interest
there as well. To become a family therapist I have to earn a masters in marriage and family therapy and from there I can get my PHD and open my own practice or get a job somewhere. Either way I just want to help families that feel like they are in trouble.
I would like to try and become a police officer and in order to do that I would need at least a minimum of 30 college units but I would like to complete my education first and get a BA. I would also need to go through and graduate from California's POST academy which gives the necessary training to become an officer. A few of the skills that I would need for the job are ability to use good judgement and problem solve, ability to deescalate situations, familiarity with the area, ability to show empathy and compassion, and good interpersonal communication skills
My ideal job in this field - as well as the career I am striving for now - is to be an attorney. Ideally, a prosecutor. Prosecutors are licensed lawyers who are either elected or hired to represent local, state, and federal governments in criminal cases against individuals or groups charged with criminal activity. They work closely with law enforcement officers, participate in criminal investigations, interview witnesses and victims, present evidence in court, and help to determine the punishment or settlement criminal defendants should receive.
I have actually decided to change my major to criminal justice, so that is the first thing that I would personally do for myself.
After graduating with my BA in Criminal Justice, I would go to law school and acquire my J.D. Throughout my time in law school, I would get an internship with a firm to get some experience and get exposure to what it is that is required when a case is going on. Upon finishing law school, I would then proceed to take and pass the bar exam and begin my dream career.

I wouldn't say that I have an ideal job in this field, but the one that sounds the most interesting to me is a forensic psychologist. Forensic psychologists study human behavior and try to interpret how people relate to others and how they react to different situations, they are a perfect bridge between the psychology and criminal justice fields. They often times serve as an expert witness in family, civil, and criminal court cases. This sounds interesting to me because I would like to gain an understanding of what goes on inside the mind of a criminal, or even why parents neglect their children. I feel like there's a lot more to criminals than whether they are just "bad" people, or people with no morals. To even pursue this practice, you would need a doctoral degree in psychology and a specialty certification in forensic psychology is necessary on top of that doctoral degree. You must complete a minimum of 100 hours of education (including supervision or continuing education) and a minimum of 1,000 hours of postdoctoral forensic psychology experience. The "training" required for the job consists of 1,000 hours of postdoctoral work before you are eligible to be certified in forensic psychology.

After this I would need to get a license from the state to become an official criminal psychologist.
My ideal job is a Crime Scene Investigator. The duties of a Crime Scene Investigator consist of collecting and analyzing physical evidence when a crime happens. They collect hair, finger prints, body fluids from both victims and perpetrators. With analyzing the evidence they provide accurate information which help solve investigations. They must pay attention to detail, know how to collect and store evidence properly. They must fill out files, reports and document all evidence they find. When it comes to the investigation, they are usually asked to testify and offer their expertise. Arriving at a crime scene may be very scary but it is important for the appropriate people to look at a crime scene first to make sure all evidence is found.
For qualifications and requirements a CSI must have a stable mind set and be aware that they will see disturbing scenes. They should also have a healthy mental and physical health since the job requires kneeling, reaching, climbing and carrying heavy things. Training will be given to each new CSI worker and they will also be required to work with an experienced CSI to be taught the basics of the job. I believe this will job is extremely important to the Criminal Justice System. They are the first group of people to enter a scene and start inspection.
My ideal job would be a youth correctional counselors help rehabilitate young offenders. Counselors generally work in a juvenile correctional facility, such as a detention center, where they supervise the offenders by enforcing discipline, making and maintaining records, and implementing constructive activity programs.
I have always had the heart to help people, that is why out of the multitude of jobs in the criminal justice administration I think I would thrive in the Juvenile Corrections officer position. I have always believed that when children are given a strong, proper role model they can thrive. Children are not born with criminal tendencies, they attain them through what they see around them. By setting a good example you can be the positive guide to show the younger generations that there is more to life than crime and punishment. Part of the job discretion is good disciple. This is very important in creating respectful young adults. Often times children get themselves into trouble because they have parents that give them tremendous amounts of freedom. The discipline established by a corrections officer shows these kids the importance of abiding by the law and respecting others. If criminal tendencies can be curtailed at a young age it will benefit society as a whole.
An understanding of children/young adults. The problems they face and the issues they’re going through
My ideal job in this field would be a criminal psychologist. They help police and investigators mostly by tending to the criminals and seeing if they are sane. They also are references for choosing a jury as well. Most of the time they are located in jails or prisons to check the mental conditions of an inmate to see if they're ready for trial. They can also help with child cases by examining parents and their parenting to see if the child is safe or not. I would say that the ability to generate rehabilitation is what pulled me in to research this job. Criminal psychologists can be useful because they are helping the law and the courts system but in a way they also help the criminals and try to understand their motives.
My Ideal Criminal Justice Job
In a perfect world where money and time are not an issue, I would pursue a career in Forensic Psychology. I am very interested in the study of crime in relation to the mind and mental health. In this field, I would need to understand the biology of the mind in relation to criminal policy. The work of a forensic psychologist tends to focus on mental state of a convict going on trial or serving time. Psychological reviews in this job would be focused on convictions but also on victim support. This career also focuses on the credibility of witnesses, determining possible biases and differing perspectives in a testimony.
I would like to help the justice system in determining the causes and effects of convictions, providing an often forgotten "why" to a crime. I personally believe therapy and one on one counsel can help the court determine the cause of a crime much more than uninformed interrogation.
In this field, I would need to be flexible enough to understand different perspectives. Psychologists often have to be wary of their own biases and beliefs when working with suspects and convicted felons. I would also need to be extremely well informed to the nuances of the brain, and how our minds reflect on our actions. In forensic psychology, attention to detail is very important, especially considering a psychologist can partially determine the severity of a convict's sentence. To succeed in this job ideal, I will most likely need a master's degree, or failing that, a lot of field experience in psychological investigation.
My ideal career in justice administration would be getting involved in the Federal Air Marshall service. A United States Air Marshall is responsible for maintaining both airport and aircraft security. Similar to any other position, candidates are expected to be familiar with policies pertaining to the job. In order to facilitate this process, Air Marshalls are usually enrolled in a standard police academy and then put through additional, more specialized aviation/federal training. This particular position is highly competitive, exclusive, and requires a multitude of specialized skills.
Due to the competitive nature of this position, it is recommended that applicants attain higher education degrees (even up to a doctoral degree) in order to set themselves apart. Potential candidates must also complete intensive firearms training due to Air Marshalls possessing the highest firearm clearance of any law enforcement. An Air Marshall is also required to have some investigative background. One of the more significant traits of an Air Marshall is strong situational awareness and an ability to effectively and discreetly deescalate intense altercations. Commitment is also a key aspect of this job because the travel and scheduling demands are hefty in comparison to other law enforcement positions.
My ideal criminal justice career would be Central Intelligence Agency (CIA): Notoriously secretive CIA agents gather foreign intelligence in order to aid in decisions on national security and foreign relations, including threats like nuclear weapons and illegal drugs. You don’t need a degree for clerical positions in this organization, but intelligence analysts and overseas agents often hold advanced degrees.
I would love working for and to help our countries safelty by proving helpful information, and giving advice on what would benefit most americans. I would like to work in gathering information that would threaten or cause havoc on citizens so I could take protective measures in order to prevent it before it affects citizens.
A bachelor’s degree in criminal justice is required for applying for this position. However, if you have a background of international studies, political science or any law related disciplines, it is also a good credential.

Apart from that they also require for you to take college coursework throughout your career as a police officer.

It it also necessary for an interest to receive law enforcement certification from their state's Peace Officers Standards and Training.
My ideal job is a juvenile and family law attorney. I feel bad for all the kids that get thrown into the legal system and are not properly represented. I am currently interning with Cate Griffiths at Recourse Medication. Part of her job is to talk with different individuals and help mediate different cases in order to prevent jail time. A lot of the cases deal with truancy. After I graduate I am going to look for juvenile probation officer jobs in order to pay my way through law school.
Some of the skills needed for this job would be patience and the ability to listen. So many of these cases get thrown at public defenders and they lose the chance of being properly dealt with. When I go into the legal field I want to make sure I take the time to look deeper into every case I have, especially when it comes to the children involved.
My ideal Job in Justice Administration would be a Probation Officer.

I like to entertain the idea that I would make a great judge one day in the Justice Administration system. Judges interpret the law and examine all evidence given for both sides as well as dictate how cases will occur inside of their courtroom. They also need to have great decision-making and analytical skills to determine if everything that is being told is 100% truthful. Perhaps the most important role though is researching legal issues for the betterment of society, making sure that our laws are constantly being respected and uplifted in the name of justice, whether that be to change, amend, or solidify.
