Differential and inequitable treatments that are encountered by racial and ethnic groups in policing, courts and corrections comes in various forms against mainly those of a specific/different race then that of their own, different religions, ethnicities and minorities, regardless of the type of hardship that an individual may encounter, prejudice of this sorts is a violation of human rights. There needs to be more training, education and understanding of those individuals that are singled out by society as well as the justice system, focusing more on the individual then the ethnic background of that individual, understandingly this could play a factor in some instances but not all. People have the right to be treated with respect and have the right to understand what is happening to them and why, we need more individuals that can act as an interpreter for those of the non-English speaking minorities, there is also a need for workers within the system that are aware of these cultures with knowledgeable backgrounds of the cultures history, this would make it easier for minorities to understand the procedures/charges and what is going on with them as associated to the circumstance (NCJRS, 1994).
Contemporary issues in cultural diversity, crime and justice, with all of the situations that have risen over the past years and currently pertaining to different type of racism, labeling, bias and prejudices we have a great need for extended training along with understanding within the cultural diversity field. Community relations that are effective as well as trusting are very important when it comes to proper policing and police-community relations. (NCJRS, 1993).
The history of Race, Ethnicity and Social Classism within the Criminal Justice System dates back hundreds of years but has changed over time from what was considered to be that of explicit racism to that of a more surreptitious manifestations and outcomes The treatment of minorities being the most profound civil rights crisis facing the United States of America in the new century (Leadership Conference (2017).
We are in a time where an individual are able to have more opportunities than that of earlier years having more individuals in positions of leadership/authority than ever before and along with that comes a chance for education and employment opportunities both being free of discrimination although by no means are we at a point within society that discrimination does not exist, this is a category in which individuals as well as society as a whole needs to grow and improve upon.
An analysis of the theoretical perspectives used in explaining cultural diversity and the Criminal Justice System involves the use of three main theoretical perspectives which are the symbolic interactionist perspective, the functionalist perspective, and the conflict perspective. Each one of the said perspectives allows sociologists different theoretical paradigms exploring society and its forces along with that of individual behaviors (Flat world Knowledge n. d.).

CORRUPT POLICE AND CORRECTIONAL SYSTEM
Police misconduct and corruption are abuses by the police and refers to a wide range of procedural, criminal, and civil violations. Procedural refers to police who violate department rules and regulations; criminal refers to police who violate state and federal laws; unconstitutional are police who violate a citizen’s Civil Rights or any combination. Police become corrupted for personal gain, which is abuse of power. It may involve profit or another type of material benefit gained illegally because of the officer’s authority. Forms of corruption are bribery extortion receiving or fencing stolen goods, and selling drugs and it also refers to patterns of misconduct within the police department are patterns of misconduct within a given police department and they established codes for conduct, train new recruits, and investigate and discipline officers, sometimes helping with civilian complaint review boards which are intended to provide independent evaluations.
It stands out in its existence, which is spreads out in every part of the world. Corruption is broken down into two sections, internal and external corruption. When referring to the police department and internal corruption is the illegal acts and agreements within a police department by more than one of officer and external corruption is the illegal acts in agreements with the public by one or more officers in a department. Corruption is widespread throughout levels of the administration in the department. Police corruption also violates human rights in their basic rights as citizens. Police corruption has increased big time with the illegal cocaine trade, and officers acting alone or in-groups to take money from dealers or to distribute cocaine themselves. There has been a large group of corrupt police who were caught in New York, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles doing these things. There are 3 elements of police corruption that are present, 1) misuse of authority, 2) misuse of official capacity, and 3) misuse of personal attainment. (Dantzler, 1995: p 157) Power is something that cause a law officer to become corrupted and there are two major categories that corrupted police fall in external corruption, it is concerned with police contacts with the public and internal corruption, which involves the relationships among policemen within the works of the police department. They gave false testimony in court to obtain the dropping of the charges against a defendant. (Sherman 1978: p 129)
A scandal is perceived both as a socially constructed phenomenon and as an agent of change that can lead to realignments in the structure of power within organizations. Within the police department there is what they call brotherhood. This brotherhood plays a role in the way officers see themselves and the world and it is hard to investigate police officers because of lack of honesty among the police officers This code of silence results in police misconduct becoming accepted behavior within police departments the police and systems mandated to help restore order proves that they have no sense of humanity, with a lack of trust from our society and improper set of values. and the correctional systems tends to care less about the livelihood of prisoners today. Leadership constitutes an integral part of police work, and the head of an organization holds the responsibility for its shortcomings and they can influence the success of an agency. As such, leaders have a significant impact in preventing corruption. The dark side of criminal justice work involves putting up with conditions that are at a comfortable level.
The Knapp Commission, are the ones who blew the whistle on the standard police explanation for corruption, they are rotten apples in an otherwise clean barrel. Due to the societies trust in law enforcement officers, a breach of this trust through corrupt activities puts society in danger, since police and correctional systems are to protect society from criminal activity. When an officer is hired, the department should promote ethics on the job. Law enforcement agencies strive to recruit, hire, best efforts will not prevent instances of police misconduct from garnering attention and even departments’ best efforts will not prevent instances of police misconduct from getting attention from the public. This jeopardizes important investigations, and expose agencies to considerable liability. Virtue ethics relies on qualities, like personality traits, values, or attitudes, to explain deviant behavior. If officers lie about evidence to obtain search warrants, their actions reflect their dishonest character. Before an officer can behave ethically, they must recognize the morals at stake in the situation, understand the principles and values involved, and choose the proper course of action. Virtue is the element of honesty, alongside fundamentals like truth and justice. The police use bad things to help dehumanize prisoners and the correctional systems tends to care less about the prisoners.
And excessive force on the inmates, effects the poor sanitations and the elements of mishandling including thorough beating are among the poor treatment of the inmates. There is no help to rectify and make the inmates thrive in a comfortable habitat. Inmates are human beings That deserve the sanctity of life and require reasonable and rationale treatment geared towards their rehabilitation. The first step in fixing corruption in a prison system is acknowledging that there is a problem in the system. This is not to condemn the system it is to recognize the vulnerability of the system and the desire to manage it effectively and professionally. The racial dynamics in sentencing have changed through time and it reflects explicitly on racism in surreptitious manifestations and outcomes. Civil society is trying to take police accountability into their own hands by demanding independent investigative institutions. The police are an occupying force rather than community resource and the police department and prosecutor’s office need to redouble efforts to recruit minorities and the Police departments should encourage, and perhaps require, that officers live in the cities they patrol. I understand policemen are human, police departments not been successful in creating test that will reliably predict officer conduct. But the department can reinforce ethical behavior by example, but it can reinforce the idea that the Academy does not know what it is like on the streets. When the departments hire an officer, they should promote ethics on the job. On what to do on changing corruption is to change the entire ideology and system of policing and punishment. Training in cultural diversity has become a contemporary police professional development course.
Recommendations to stop the corruption occurring in the police and correctional systems
- creating external oversight over the police with a special focus on integrity,
- improving recruitment and training, leadership from supervisors of all ranks about integrity,
- Body cameras on police during their shift.
- holding all commanders responsible for the misbehavior of subordinates, and changing the organization’s culture to tolerate misbehavior less.
- reforms to police culture, management,
- disciplinary processes, and external environment
- watching police officer’s behavior
- Changing deeply rooted structural and cultural obstacles
- help fight corruption involving proper procedures and policies.
- incentives program.
- Stricter screening methods need to be implemented to decrease the chance that a potential hire will become corrupt.
- Improve training of current and incoming police officers to bring police departments into compliance with the national standards
- Improve the Diversity of Law Enforcement Personnel
Every one of these recommendations are important in stopping the police and corrections from turning towards to corruption and I am not saying that they will work in helping law enforcement to ethically morally be good police officer that society will then start trusting cops in the end. With cultural diversity and the Criminal Justice System it involves the use of three main theoretical perspectives which are the symbolic interactionist perspective
