Just like peer reviewing a paper with your peers the process is refining and suggesting edits to your classmate or in this case a coworker like in the criminal justice field reports are made or even training bulletins, case studies or after-action reports on incidents in the field such as an investigation or a briefing of an event. So just as the process of reviewing and suggesting edits on papers it can apply in the work force of criminal justice such reviewing policies and procedures or written reports amongst coworkers. Critiques happen within first responders such as field tactics critiques and suggestions.

Hi everyone,
Peer-review process apply within the workforce or the field of criminal justice in the matters that before any reports and/or statement receive a final approve, that reports, or statements has been reviewed and justify before a report and/or statement get passed thorough to management (Bond, 2016). Peer-reviewed editorials pieces are composed by researchers and scholars, who work within those industries. Before any of those editorial’s pieces are published by an academic journal, a panel of expert’s researcher, scholars, and/or practitioners will examine the presented editorials to confirm the attributes of the information (Bond, 2016). And in this topic of discussion the experts would in experts who are criminal justice discipline.

Topic 2: Communication
What types of things would you do in a professional setting to communicate suggested writing changes or ideas without being inconsiderate or without offending the recipient of your suggestions?

As I feel this is a common topic within fire and police with making suggestions on changes or stating in a professional way that there needs to be changes or that a certain policy or procedure is not working. Some tactics would be to even write a report on why changes should be made for a certain subject and almost treat your thesis as why a subject should be changes and write supporting facts and reasons on why you believe things need to be changed or altered and write it in the way of such that you are stating suggestions for revision and that you yourself are willing to help. I feel stating ‘this needs to be changed its not working’ and that is it without suggesting on how and why and to not offer the help in my opinion will never go over well in the professional setting. But rather state that a certain subject within the work place may not be at its full potential and state facts why and that you’re willing to help fix or even revise a written report will be more welcomed in the professional setting in my opinion.

What types of things would you do in a professional setting to communicate suggested writing changes or ideas without being inconsiderate or without offending the recipient of your suggestions?

            Professional communication is important in every setting. In communication of things that are likely to upset the recipient, it is prudent to use techniques that assure the recipient of their due respect. The recipient needs to know that the messenger has all the respect for them. Informing the recipient about a correction in their writing is best done through a quiet technique that will show them their mistake without any embarrassment (Thill, Bovée, & Cross, 2005). In this regard, writing on a piece of paper about the problem in the writing and a correction below with an apology indicated for disturbance is one of the best ways (Thill, Bovée, & Cross, 2005). This is a great way of ensuring that the message is delivered to the recipient, correction given and an apology also issued. I believe that these three are important ingredients in pacifying the recipient even when they have done a mistake that needs corrections. Anyone can be criticized but taking all the criticism is usually impossible because of the different ways in which people criticize (Thill, Bovée, & Cross, 2005). Using writing to express yourself in correcting another person is professional enough because it shows that you have the best intention towards the matter, which is correcting and not embarrassing the recipient (Thill, Bovée, & Cross, 2005). I believe that requesting for a private chat-time with the recipient is also a great way of concealing what the person is about to tell the recipient (Thill, Bovée, & Cross, 2005). It is wise to ensure that the corrections are told privately for the recipient to reserve their respect as well as learning on what to do to change the situation. It is a technique that helps in concealing things that can be changed and communicated in the best way.

These editing exercises did help me understand the importance of review and revision and not just typing a paper and submitting it right away, which I have been guilty of in past classes. Editing and revision with peers in my opinion can only improve your writing and never truly be a disadvantage in writing in an academic or professional setting. Using technology like spell check is always an obvious route but I feel these exercises have made me appreciate the peer-to-peer review with having at minimum one person review and make suggests to my work.

During the seminar, the editing exercise got me thinking, “oh shoot, I am going to fail”; “do I know what I am doing?” The editing exercise made me really think about my paper and helped me understand where my mistakes were, in terms of the APA format. It helped show me how to make corrections to my work. It helped me realize how much work I need to do too good at it. I do not want to be perfect just to be able to understand the citation process, there so much to remember.
