There are countless numbers of jobs to choose from, but I am fascinated with becoming a Drug Enforcement agent. The United States drug enforcement administration was created to enforce the laws and regulations concerning improper use of substances in our country. The skills and abilities in order to withhold such a position within our country require a ton of responsibility. Not only does a person need to acquire a great sense of investigative skills, but they must also be prepared to deal with major violators of controlled substance laws.
The hardest part about being a drug enforcement agent is having to deal with drug gangs and criminals whom are extremely dangerous and intimidating. There are personal reasons as to why becoming a drug enforcement agent is important to me. I have seen people close to me become consumed by drug and have seen them lose complete control of their lives and reality itself. The idea of pursuing a career that can help stop, or rather lessen the amount of drug consumption and violence on the streets makes me want to help my community out, since I couldn’t really help people that were close to me once.
The idea of diminishing a portion of society’s malice by implementing my knowledge and skill of a drug enforcement practitioner thrills me. Although becoming a DEA has always been my focus, as I continue my education on criminal justice, I can at any moment have a change of heart. The reason being, there are countless numbers of criminal justice jobs to choose from. My other passion is becoming a Juvenile Probation officer. A juvenile delinquent counselor’s role consists of advising young teens that have committed criminal offenses and to deter them from becoming repeat offenders.
What we Prohibit We Cannot Control: Restriction Before Education? There is a definite problem regarding the laws that enforce drug use in the United States today. Think about this question. Why are some of the most injurious, addictive, and mind altering substances in the world -- tobacco and alcohol -- legal, while other drugs are illegal that potentially cause no harm and have very little abuse? ...
In order to be a successful counselor, a person must be willing to be extremely patient. As well as have a strong understanding of the backgrounds in which each adolescent has come from. I try very hard to understand why juvenile delinquents do what they do. It is difficult to be a saint at such a range of young ages, but it is simple to learn right from wrong. I am very willing and extremely aware of certain situations that force juveniles to choose wrong instead of right.
In many cases, these adolescents just need someone to guide them and point them in the right direction. I feel like this would also be a job in the criminal justice field that I can certainly succeed in. I have set myself up with personal and professional goals in order to succeed. Not only am I determined to complete my associate’s degree in two terms, while still working a full – time job in the logistics field for my company, but I plan to attain my bachelor’s degree before I turn twenty-five.
I can easily climb the cooperate ladder in my current job, especially if I can attain my degrees within a logical time period. I still have a lot to learn about the field of criminal justice, but I do have a strong focus in specializing in the Drug Enforcement agency and I do not mind learning information aside from the DEA. Patience, willingness, and a kind heart is all that will take to accomplish my goals and succeeding within the criminal justice field.
