For this discussion, present the topic that you chose in Unit 1 Study 2.
After identifying your topic, describe the victim or victims of the crime. Present the name of the victims, the nature of the crime, and some details of the criminal action. Be sure to cite any sources, such as online newspaper articles that you consulted in developing your post.
Describe the job role—victim advocate or law enforcement officer—and setting with which you as the hypothetical professional have come into contact with the victim. Explain the professional’s responsibilities to the victim. To what needs of the victim does this professional attend? Hint: Search the Internet for descriptions of job roles and cite them along with describing your understanding of the role. In other words do not simply list the job responsibilities.
In your role as victim advocate or law enforcement officer, how would you respond to the needs of the victims?
