Class is Conflict Management
See below the problem solving questions
You are the Chief Probation Officer in a medium-size county probation department. Your probation officers have observed an increase in the number of sex offenders convicted of indecent exposure related crimes.
This has caused an severe overload for the small cadre of probation officers trained to work with sex offenders. Furthermore, the judge has requested that your department create a specialized supervision program designed specifically for indecent exposure offenders.
Using the Problem Solving Questions approach, find a solution to this problem. Hint: You must write down and answer each problem solving question (and sub-questions) listed in the Problem Solving Questions list. There can be multiple solutions, so you are not graded on a right or wrong solution, but on how completely you answer the problem solving questions.
