One of the overriding instincts in human nature is the desire to make a difference in the world. Just about everyone has the urge to positively influence their surroundings for the benefit of society. Many people choose to perform this service in the field of criminal justice. Individuals with the drive and ambition for this type of work can be seen in many arenas. Some are police officers, others become attorneys with special training in the criminal justice field, and still others benefit society by serving as probation officers who work to assist ex-offenders in starting their new lives.
