criminal justice

The job profile of correctional officers includes security and inmate accountability. They are responsible for preventing disturbances, physical attacks, and escapes by the prisoners or inmates. The job profile of correctional officers can make them both sympathetic as well as hateful towards victims. They may be sympathetic because they deal with perpetrators who have victimized.

In this context, do you think it is essential to educate correctional officers on the field of victimology? Can officers working with the same criminal populations have differing views on victims? Can victimologists help correctional officers or do victimologists and correctional officers form an unnatural team? Why? Support your rationale with research-based examples or real-life experiences.
