The Changing Role of Probation

| November 24, 2014

The Changing Role of Probation

The author of the textbook lays out three critical thinking questions at the end of Chapter 7 that examine issues surrounding probation and its role in addressing juvenile delinquency. Select one of the critical thinking questions for this discussion:
a.Probation is the workhorse of the juvenile justice system, but it often suffers from a negative image. That negative image emanates from critics who believe that probation is too lenient of a punishment. What are your views on probation? What other alternatives do you recommend?
b.Do you think probation officers should act as a treatment counselor as suggested by the Effective Practices in Community Supervision (EPICS) model? Are there any disadvantages of having probation officers act in this role?
c.Do you think that global positioning (GPS) devices are a reasonable option for monitoring juvenile delinquents? Do you think GPS devices violate their privacy rights? Why or why not?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references
Critical Thinking Questions
1.Visit the Officer of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention website ( and learn more about the latest trends in probation.
2.Probation is the workhorse of the system; however, it often suffers from a negative image. That negative image emanates from critics who believe that probation is too lenient of a punishment. What are your views on probation?
3.Do you think probation officers should act as a treatment counselor as suggested by the EPICS model? Are there any disadvantages of having probation officers act in this role?
4.Do you think that global positioning systems (GPSs) are a reasonable option for monitoring juvenile delinquents? Do you think GPS devices violate their privacy rights? Why or why not?


Course: Public Policy Peace Operations – THE INTERAGENCY PROCESS

| November 24, 2014

Course: Public Policy Peace Operations – THE INTERAGENCY PROCESS

Course Overview
This course examines the U.S. Interagency process as it relates to peace operations.  The various departments and agencies maintaining equities in overseas missions will be identified and explored.  Case studies will highlight instances of success or failure in application of a “whole-of-government” approach to intervention.  Finally, we summarize the most significant problems hampering interagency cooperation today and recent policy directives, frameworks, and initiatives developed to address this situation.

Learning Objectives
Students will be able to identify and discuss the different U.S. Government departments and agencies which have traditionally been involved in international intervention since the 1800s.  They will be conversant in examples where we have succeeded or failed to apply a “whole-of-government” approach to overseas contingencies.  Further, students will be able to identify and discuss seminal policy directives, frameworks, and initiatives developed to overcome problems that continue to plague effective Interagency collaboration.

Case Study Assignment
Paper Requirements
– Your assignment is to explore and analyze a specific topic of your choosing (In this case U.S. Immigration and Guatemala), related to the interagency process as it relates to peace operations. This case study will highlight instances of success or failure in application of a “whole-of-government” approach to intervention.  Your objective is to present a thesis, supporting your analysis and argument with your own prior knowledge, knowledge obtained through class discussions, assigned readings as well as knowledge obtained through outside research.
– you may use any resource available to you however the bulk of your sources for analysis should be primary sources, academic sources, scholarly journals, journal articles, books. Other sections of your paper may be found through Internet sources, newspapers, or journals, academic publications, government publications etc., ( Not older than 5-10yrs) and  as long as it is properly acknowledged and cited appropriately.  ***In all sections, the CIA World Fact Book and encyclopedias (including Wikipedia) are not considered appropriate resources. DO NOT USE THESE.***
Instructions for this order:

1)    For this order you are to write a 12 page research paper to explore and analyze a specific topic such as youth immigrants from Honduras migrating to the U.S. and relating it to U.S. immigration policy/laws. How does this issue effect the interagency process?

2)    Your case study should be focused on Guatemala. Specifically looking at youth immigrants migrating to the U.S. Why are teens inclined to join “mara” groups within the U.S. and/or Guatemala. Also how immigration policies/laws in the U.S. come into play when dealing with this issue/conflict.

3)    You MUST also look at some of the causes and effects in terms of what is being done about the underlying issues by conducting further analytical research and focusing on one specific Non-government (NGO) organization that deals with these young migrants in the U.S. directly.  The NGO you choose to analyze MUST be an organization that aids these young migrants to succeed once they arrive into the U.S.

4)    Analyze and elaborate positive and negative aspects of immigration.  For example, what does the U.S. gain and/or lose when these immigrants migrate to the U.S. and become part of society in the U.S. Also, what does Guatemala gain and/or lose when these young adults migrate to the U.S.

5)    Choose a specific NGO who deals with these young immigrants in the U.S. Especially one who deals with troubled young adults who get out of gangs, violence, drugs, jail, but then turn their lives around and become success stories due to the guidance programs the NGO provides to these members.  ***Your goal here is to put a face to your case study from a humanitarian point of view. There are many examples of success stories of troubled Guatemalan immigrants who came to the U.S. and became success stories by obtaining a job, going to school, obtaining an education,  and currently work for the U.S. government.

6)    Is immigration from Guatemala good or bad? Should the US change its immigration laws? If so, what should they be?

7)    Finally, Your paper should include a recommendations section as well as a conclusion.

8)    Provide an appropriate Title to your case study around the topic

9)    Your case study Must provide a clear thesis statement of the topic

10)    Stay within course related concepts See attached course weekly discussion content and class notes for further details on what needs to be integrated in your paper

11)    You MUST Use headings to indicate different areas you are analyzing/arguing in your research paper and clearly indicate what the thesis for your paper is.

12)    It is important that you incorporate course methodology and concept understanding. (See attached “Course lectures” and other reading materials related to the course lectures)- in order to for you to understand the content of the course. Make sure to use key points/ concepts. Substance within the paper is important.

The structure of the paper should be similar to the following;
Background – not too much on the background. The goal here is to have a neat and concise summary. The shorter the better. Focus on key facts.(don’t drag it out) –should not be longer than 1page maximum
Issues &Analysis – This should be bulk of the research paper
Recommendations – This is also the bulk of the paper- have clear recommendations and clearly state which you are recommending. (Remember that your recommendations are based on the issues and therefore it needs to make sense and needs to be concise in explanation.
***Use headers to identify each section. Highlight the thesis of the paper***
– Structure your paper around the thesis and your topic as explained above.
– When you talk about roles and responsibilities (for example if you say someone is mentoring), really make sure that you explain what that entails.
– Also identify what some challenges may be, as well as what it would take to turn the situation on a different level. For example, education.
– When you make a recommendation, think of why and then elaborate.
– This paper is a public policy focus writing paper, which means that it is important to only draw out the most important things and not spend too much time in going around in circles to get to a point.
*********Please see attached sample so you have an idea of the style of writing******
****Fundamentals of Writing:
It is important that the entire paper is well organized, coherent, concise and to the point.
The structure of your paper should move smoothly from one point to the next, the same way you want your audience’s thought to go. Therefore, Transitions between paragraphs, recommendations or stating an issue, needs to be well elaborated and explained clearly.
Do not use filler words within your sentences. e.g. “in order to”, or “the parties”. If you have labeled/header as the parties section within your paper, do not write “the parties again” within that section- these are filler words and they should not be used repetitively. Also, make sure you don’t over use the word “and” repetitively within the same sentence twice. This becomes confusing and redundant.
Use creative action verbs to start a direct sentence, such as;
Create – Sentence 1
Design – Sentence 2
Implement – Sentence 3
Your paper should be written in a way that someone who doesn’t know anything about your topic, should be able to understand what your paper and arguments are about.
*****By any means, do not use passive voice in your writing. It needs to be more active and forward leading

***************About Your Sources: *******************
1) For this order, you are NOT allowed to use any encyclopedias, Wikipedia, CIA references, travel guides, magazines, etc… For the most part you MUST use primary sources (scholarly journals, journal articles, books, etc.,) ***This is very important***. Pay close attention to page numbers and paragraph numbers of your sources as these will be very important when you are citing throughout your paper. Make sure your parenthetical citations in your paper match with the sources you are using. i.e. (Grindin 2011, 124). THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

2) You MUST use the following database (JSTOR, ProQuest) to research your sources. All of your primary sources (scholarly journals, journal articles, books, etc.,) MUST BE DRAWN FROM THESE DATABASES ONLY.***

Please follow these steps to access this database;

The traditional approach to finding the agreement is to classify the negotiations into offer and acceptance. In a large number of contracts this is simple to do, but

it is not always that easy and the way in which the courts are sometimes forced to classify agreements in this way has been questioned. [See for example Lord

Wilberforce’s comments in New Zealand Shipping v. Satterthwaite (the Eurymedon)].[1975] AC 154. [1974 1 All ER 1015, [1974] 2 WLR 865.

Nevertheless, it seems that, at least for theoretical purposes, this must be the approach – and first we must find an offer capable of acceptance.  The House of Lords

has recently reiterated that the test is an objective one  – i.e. what the parties appear outwardly to have agreed:

Lord Brightman [the Leonidas 1985] : “If one party (O) so acts that his conduct, objectively considered, constitutes an offer, and the other party (A) believing that

the conduct of O represents his actual intention, accepts O’s offer, then a contract will come into existence, and on those facts it will make no difference if O did

not in fact intend to make an offer, or if he misunderstood A’s acceptance, so that O’s state of mind is in such circumstances irrelevant.”
It is only where the offeree knows the offeror’s intention is different from his apparent intention that this rule will be displaced.

All this means that the test to be applied is -How things appeared to the reasonable offeree.

Note: in White v. White [2001] UKHL/9 [2001] 2All ER 43 the House of Lords made an important point in respect of English Law, and how the interpretation of contracts

has been affected by membership of the EU.

In Marleasing SA v. La Commercial Internacional de Alimentacion SA C-106/89 [1990] ECR 1-4135, a principle based upon Council Directive (EEC) 84/5, requires that the

domestic legislation of Member States must be interpreted in a way which gives effect to the purpose of the directive.  In White  it was held that this does not extend

to the interpretation of contracts, where to do so would impose upon one or other of the parties an obligation that the contract does not otherwise impose.  This is to

say that the domestic rules of interpretation of contracts remain unchanged – and this is so even where one of the parties is an emanation of the state.

An OFFER can be defined as: “A proposition put by one person (or persons) to another person (or persons) coupled with an intimation that he is willing to be bound by

that proposition”.


An offer may take the form of:
a) An offer of a promise in return for an act.
b) An offer of an act in return for a promise.
c) An offer of a promise for a promise.

The necessary element of “willingness to be bound” can be gathered not only from words used but also by conduct and surrounding circumstances.
Note: That in a) and b), it is only once the act is performed, (executed consideration), that there is an obligation on the other party to pay or fulfil the terms of

their own promise.  In this sense the contract is ‘Unilateral’.  The more usual kind of contractual agreement is c), where there is only a contract (subject to other

requirements), once both parties have made their promises – i.e. a ‘Bilateral’ contract. Although neither party has performed anything under the contract yet, they are

still bound to fulfil their promises.

(i) The auctioneer’s request for bids is merely an invitation to others to make the offer. The bid is the offer, the acceptance is the fall of the auctioneers hammer:

Payne v. Cave (1789).3 Term Rep 148
This rule has now been given statutory force in S.57 Sale of Goods Act 1979.
(ii) An advertisement that an auction will be held on a certain day is not an offer capable of acceptance: Harris v. Nickerson (1873) LR 8 QB 286. So that a man who

spent time and money attending an advertised auction, only to find that the furniture he wished to buy had been withdrawn from the sale – was held not entitled to

claim those expenses as damages for breach of contract.
(iii) There is less certainty with an auction sale that is stated to be “without reserve”. In Warlow v. Harrison (1859) 1 E & E 309, obiter, it was held that such a

statement was a “promise to sell to the highest bidder” and that this was an offer capable of acceptance.

It seems therefore that:
Where an auction is advertised as being “without reserve” – there is no liability if the sale is never held, but once the auctioneer starts to accept bids, there is

now a separate binding promise to sell to the highest bidder.

In Barry v. Heathcote Ball & Co (Commercial Auctions) Ltd. [2000] 1 WLR 1962 the Court of Appeal applied Warlow v. Harrison in holding that an auctioneer who puts up

goods for sale ‘without reserve’ enters into a collateral contract to sell the goods to the highest bidder.

b) Tenders
Where A invites a number of persons to quote a price for the supply of goods or services, etc. – this is merely an invitation for offers – and unless he expressly

promises to do so, he need not accept any tender. The situation is the same where A invites B to give him an estimate – A is not making an offer. e.g. see Spencer v.

Harding (1870) LR 5 CP 561.

See also *Harvela Investments Ltd v. Royal Trust co. of Canada (CI) Ltd [1986] AC 207, [1985] 2 All ER 966, [1985] 3 WLR 276, where the telex stated that the “highest

offer” would be accepted.
This was held to be an offer of a unilateral contract to accept the highest bid, which would be followed by a bilateral contract with the highest bidder.  In such a

situation, where the invitations to bid are to a closed number of possible tenders,  the “referential bid” of the plaintiffs was inconsistent with the offer.

Similarly, in *Blackpool & Fylde Aero Club v. Blackpool B.C. [1990] 3 All ER 25, [1990] 1 WLR 1195.  Held: Where an invitation to tender is sent to a limited number of

known persons, there is an implied promise to give proper consideration to any tender received in accordance with that invitation.
Here invitations to tender for a concession contained instructions as to the method of submission of such tenders, and imposed a deadline for receipt of those tenders.

A tender that was submitted according to those conditions could not be rejected out of hand.  Proper consideration had to be given to its contents.

c) Advertisements; circulars; catalogues.
These will generally be regarded as merely invitations to treat:
Partridge v. Crittenden. [1968] 2 All ER 421, [1968] 1 WLR 1204. A charge of unlawfully offering wild live birds for sale failed as the court held the advertisement to

be merely an invitation to treat.

BUT, not every advertisement is an invitation to treat – in special circumstances it will be an offer to the whole world:
*Carlill v. Carbolic Smoke Ball Co. [1891-4] All ER 127 . The defendants advertised their medical preparation and stated that they would pay £100 to anyone who

contracted influenza after using the smoke ball in the prescribed manner. As evidence of their sincerity they also stated that they had deposited £1000 for this

purpose with their bankers. When Mrs. Carlill made a claim, the defendants tried to say that the advertisement was not an offer capable of acceptance, merely an

invitation to treat, as a contract cannot be made with an indeterminate number of persons. They did not succeed. The court held that it was an offer to the whole world

– a unilateral contract made with that limited portion of the public who bought the preparation and used it in conformity with directions. The “intimation of a

willingness to be bound” was found in the deposit of the sum of money with the bank.
NOTE: A unilateral contract arises where the obligation is only on one side. There must be two parties for the contract to arise, but only one party binds himself by

promise – the other party is not bound, and may or may not enter the contract as he chooses. If he does perform the required act, then that (generally) constitutes

both the acceptance (by conduct) and the consideration, (executed) to support the other’s promise. A more recent illustration:- Bowerman v. ABTA [1996] CLC 451

d) Goods on sale in shop windows; or priced goods on shelves inside the  store.
*Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain v. Boots Cash Chemists (Southern) ltd 1952 (Boots Case).[1953] 1 All ER 482, [ 1953] 2 WLR 427.
This case established that goods on display in shops are merely invitations to treat and not offers capable of acceptance. The case revolved around the question

whether certain poisons on display on the shelves were sold once the customer took them off the shelf (when a registered pharmacist was not supervising the sale) or

only once they were presented at the cash desk (where there was a registered pharmacist).
The matter was treated as settled in
Fisher v. Bell [1961]1 QB 394, [1960] 3 All ER 731,[1960] 3 WLR 919. where the offence of offering a flick knife for sale was not committed by displaying one with a

price ticket on it in a shop window.

But BEWARE –  in particular circumstances, a window display could be an offer if the words used and the circumstances were definite enough. In Warwickshire CC v.

Johnson [1993] 1 All ER 299 it was held that a notice ‘We will beat any TV HiFi and Video price by £20 on the spot’, was a continuing offer.

Esso Petroleum v. Commissioners of Custom & Excise [1976] 1 All ER 117, [1976] 1 WLR 1..
Here there was an advertisement that a free ‘coin’  would be given with every four gallons of petrol purchased.  In the House of Lords, two judges thought there was a

contract for the coin, but not a contract of sale, two more thought there was no contract for the coin, as there was no intention to be legally bound, and one judge

thought the offer consisted of four gallons of petrol and a coin!

e) Negotiations for the sale of land

It seems that the courts recognise that negotiations here may be prolonged and only where there is very clear evidence of an intention to be bound will they hold that

a contract has been concluded:
i.e. where there is merely a supply of information *Harvey v. Facey [ 1893] AC 552. The telegraph stating the lowest price for the property was NOT an offer capable of

Here, where the owner property responded to a request for the lowest prices for his property by telegraphing ‘Lowest cash price, Bumper Hall, Penn, £900,’  the court

held that this was not an offer to sell, it merely gave information as to the lowest price he might accept, had he been thinking of selling.
Two cases are also illustrative of the courts’ approach. They concerned the changes of policy of Local Authorities  regarding the sale of council houses to tenants:

Storer v. Manchester City Council [1974] 3 All ER 824, [1974] 1 WLR 1403.  In this case the Town Clerk, by his words, was held to be dispensing with the need for a

formal contract, so that a contract was concluded.

Gibson v. Manchester City Council [1979] 1 All ER 972, [1979] 1 WLR 294..  Where the words “The Corporation may be prepared to sell” and “if you wish to make formal

application to buy” were held to be fatal to the construction of the letter as a firm offer.

f). Transactions by machine
These are becoming more commonplace, and different rules sometimes have to apply – for example, a petrol pump in an automatic filling petrol station has to become an

offer to sell petrol at the stated price because of the ‘finality’ of putting the petrol into the customer’s tank – it cannot be returned.
See: Re Charge Card Services [1989] Ch 417. Where it was held that an open offer to sell at pump prices was accepted by a motorist putting petrol in the tank.  We will

look at other examples of contracts entered into through the medium of machinery when we study Terms.


The other party must have an opportunity either to accept the offer or reject it:
Taylor v. Laird (1856) 1 H & N 266.
The captain of a ship, who give up the captaincy half way through a voyage, and then worked as a crew member for the journey home, could not claim for his wages as a

crew member as the most that his actions constituted was an uncommunicated offer to work in that capacity.  The owner of the ship had had no opportunity to either

accept or reject that offer.


Boulton v. Jones (1857) 2 H & N 564. Held: There was no contract as the offer had been made to someone other than the plaintiff.  A buyer, who had an agreed ‘set off’

arrangement with the erstwhile owner of a business, was not bound to pay for hose-pipe received and consumed. The buyer had made the offer to the previous owner of the

business, not to the new owner who supplied the hose-pipe.

The next lecture concerns

The FACT  of acceptance.
The COMMUNICATION of acceptance – particularly –
•    where communication is through the post,
•    where communication is dispensed with by the offeror,
•    where the mode of communication is prescribed by the offeror,
•    silence and communication of acceptance.

Project description
Write your essay:
-Introduction 100-150w: general/introductory information about the genre/style, about the play and the production element you are focusing on.
-Main body: description and analysis of the production element of your choice.
Relate your descriptions to the play. Give a lot of examples from within the play,
use quotes from the play and justify things from within the play. For example Elizabethan costume may generally be like *this*, but Juliettes costume for this play

must take into consideration the characters age and personality, scene and costume changes, references that might be in the play from other characters to her garments

and so on.
Use your common sense to address practicalities and show an understanding of how aspects of production interact with one another. For example according to Elizabethan

fashion, Lady Macbeth should be wearing a corset made of iron, however this must not restrict her mobility and must not press down hard on her diaphragm because she

needs to be able to breathe freely in order to project her voice. OR: Traditional Noh mask may be made out of *this kind* of specific wood, but as this kind of wood is

native only in Japan, I propose alternatively the use of *this* material which has similar properties and will create a similar result.
Use pictures/visuals that demonstrate what you want to say. All pictures must have captions (not included in the word count) explaining what it is they are

demonstrating and why it is necessary to be there. Visuals in a RI must be fully justified and not merely for decoration.
-Conclusion 100-150w: Wrapping up the findings of your research, conclusive statement about the viability of the project and the importance of following the

aforementioned steps

8. Cite your sources. ALL information you are including except products of common sense should be properly attributed and referenced. As this is not a creative

exercise, everything you say is essentially the product of someone elses research; so practically, every second or third sentence should appear in quotation marks,

footnoted, and then the source must feature in your bibliography (including the pictures).

• For objective a appendix B gives some suggestions.
• For objective b give some thought about the parameters you should use in the comparison. These should be the important characteristics e.g. speed of data collection,

correctness of position…
• For objective c the airborne  laser scanning data will be provided. o Give thought to the resolution of the data (spacing of points) and the measurement quality of

the data. You will have to consult manufacturers and/or published documents to find the quality of Lidar data.
• For objective d consider the following tasks: o A DSM from mobile laser scanning will be provided.

To create the 3D computer model of the building using close-range photogrammetry you will need to collect digital camera images of the façades of the building and use

Photomodeller to create the model.

1. A digital SLR camera (or your own) will be used to collect a series of photographs around the Exchange building, Jubilee Campus. The camera calibration process

within Photomodeller will be discussed.
2. The processing of the images using Photomodeller can then be undertaken. A separate hand out will be provided to guide you through this process.
