I feel I can help the individuals that offend and break the laws. Sometimes they just need someone to hear them out and sometimes they belong behind bars. A parole officer should be able to separate the two.

I want a career that I can enjoy and be challenged with one in which I want to retire from knowing that I have improved someones life and enswured the safety of citizens. I want a career that I can master and excel in. Being a Parole officer can be so rewarding the greatest reward is knowing that you Ive respected everyone and the case provided and ensuring that I was fair and consice.

Parole work encompasses three major factors for me. My fascination with the justice system, hence my degree; my empathetic nature that truly wants to help people going through a personal crisis, hence my current job; and finally becoming a parole officer gives you the authority and control to stand by your decisions. I don't think any job can be fully satisfying when your actions cannot reflect your morals.

The job encompasses my fascination with the criminal justice system, while still allowing me to explore the more understanding and compassionate side of my nature. I enjoy the work I do now for that very reason, but unlike working for a specific bleeding heart mission, parole officers are allotted some authority that allows them to defend themselves from being taken advantage of. I believe all three aspects would compliment each other nicely and allow every day on the job to be different from the last.
