Diversity Within Canadian Public Safety Agencies Background
The value of having public safety agencies (policing and corrections) employees who represent the composition of the communities they work in has been understood for decades now. It is believed that a public safety organization that represents the demographics of its community is not only important, but there are many benefits. Changing the composition of public safety agencies and increasing the diversity has long been a goal by these agencies.
In essay format, write a three–four page paper (not including references and the cover page) on diversity within Canadian public safety agencies (policing or corrections). After reading the content in your text book, write an essay on why diversity in public safety agencies is important and identify the benefits. You will need to research an agency that you are interested in potentially working for, and find some examples of either police agencies or corrections agencies attempting to change the composition of the agency. Explain some history of the demographics in public safety agencies and show from research what a specific agency is doing to improve the diversity. Your paper must be typed (12 font), double spaced and you must have an APA cover page and a reference page. APA format is required for this assignment, so please use in-text citations in your paper. Following your introductory paragraph(s), the headings of “Diversity within Canadian Public Safety Agencies” and “Conclusion” must be included in your paper.
• Your introduction should include what the essay will contain and what are the important aspects of diversity in public safety agencies. Ensure your information is based upon research and not just your opinion or assumption on these styles. Make sure to include a thesis statement which outlines the main points of your paper.
• Diversity within Canadian Public Safety Agencies: In the next portion, you should identify the historical make-up of the public safety agencies and identify why there needs to be change and the benefits of the changing composition. This should be in a minimum of two paragraphs. Opinions without supporting evidence are not credible. Include information form the textbook and any agency sites that you are using for your research. Use your own words, do not re-write the text, and do not overly use direct quotes. You should provide Canadian examples public safety agencies. This may involve going onto some Canadian public safety agencies websites and looking for annual reports. If an agency is claiming they are becoming more diverse, provide the evidence from their site to show this is being done (do not just assume they are because the website says they are).
• The topic of diversity can include increasing male/female/other employees as well as visible minority and Indigenous employees. The concept of increasing diversity is important to both the policing and corrections fields. This paper does require you cite any examples you are using from police or correctional agencies. You are choosing just one agency.
• Conclusion: Summarize your paper in one paragraph by explaining the important aspects of your paper and re-emphasizing the importance of diversity in public safety agencies.
