Publication Vision for Tomorrow: Assimilating Diversity in Florida's Criminal Justice System

January 1, 1993    NCJ 142474

The issue of human diversity is a critical variable in the criminal justice system. Every person involved in the criminal justice system, whether as a job applicant, recruit, manager, or executive, confronts diversity. The FCJEI is designed to confront diversity in the criminal justice system by training criminal justice managers and executives. The focus is not just on race and culture but, more important on age, ability, and other characteristics associated with Florida's changing demographics. The institute has two primary courses of study, the Chief Executive Seminar and the Senior Leadership Program. Each program maintains a futures orientation and pays particular attention to changes in demographics and the impact of increasing diversity on criminal justice agency management. The Florida Department of Corrections serves as an example of the range of policies and activities associated with assimilating diversity. The Job Tasks Analysis (JTA) for criminal justice managers and executives is noted as one approach to determining human performance requirements of chief executive positions. FCJEI activities that recognize human diversity are outlined, and a study of possible racial or ethnic bias in Florida's criminal justice system work force is reported.
