You are a police officer who has been assigned to a local high school as a school resource officer. You would like to recommend the use of restorative justice techniques to your resource officer program supervisor as you believe these will help youthful offenders assimilate back into the school system after being away. Prepare a report for your supervisor in which you outline the techniques you would like to use and how these ideas might help to improve relations between resource officers and young people in the schools. In your report, be sure to explain the theoretical perspectives behind your techniques and why you feel they are important.
Your report should consist of at least two pages, including an introduction, and should use at least two references, one of which can be your textbook. Make sure that your citations and references are formatted properly in APA Style.
