In the field of criminal justice it is crucial for employees to understand the importance of oral and written communication. No matter what an individual’s position happens to be, they will have to orally communicate with internal staff such as co-workers, supervisors, deputies, security, judicial officers, as well as external members like clients, defendants, victims, jurors, as well as the general public.

1.) The course covered areas that are critical for justice to be served.

Formal channels of communication include orders, directives and written memorandums that follow a chain of command. Communication in this scenario usually flows downward from the highest level of the totem pole, such as a police chief down to its subordinates. This type of channel of communication has both its advantages and disadvantages. The advantage of using a formal channel promote uniformity within the department. All officers, despite their rank, receive the same information. The disadvantage of using formal channels is that it sometimes stops the free flow of communication.
