Executive Summary

In today's society, it is critical to any individual(s) who may be considering entering into the business world to have a complete and thorough knowledge of what it takes in order to successfully maintain a business. "Strategic plans vary with respect to the time period involved. Generally, short-range plans are for one year or less and moderate-range plans for two to five years" (

Both types of plans are usually quite detailed. Long-range plans cover periods of more than five years, perhaps up to fifteen years, and are usually not as specific. Knowledge of the risks, company liabilities and other business related structures that may be pertinent to the success of that company. With the job market and national economy in its current state, one must carefully evaluate the way by which he plans to govern his business. This holds true too for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

The dangers of the modern world remain unrivaled and parallel no time in history in which crimes have been committed at such a staggering rate. Crimes such as rape, murder, homicide, mass genocide, theft, fraud and now identity theft. It is for these reasons that companies such as the aforementioned are necessary. When dealing with a "how to" plan, it is important to realize what are the keys for the progression of that company.

In every major city or small town in the U.S., there are both federal and locally governed tasks forces that are designed to keep theses flaws of humanity in check. Ranging from policeman, security guards, private investigators, the FBI, and even the CIA, these programs have been designed for the sole purpose of protecting and servicing our country. Like these agencies, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice not only acts to serve and protect, but it also help to reform and educate those members of society who have paid their debts to society. To the general populous, these members are better known as criminals or inmates.

With the hopes of rehabilitation and reintroduction into society, the design for such an organization can ill afford any miscalculations or errors in its strategy. Organization of lower and higher officials must be laid out in such a way that it is clear who is doing what at all times. The potential problems that this may present seem to be self evident. No one is ready to honestly say that they would feel comfortable living next door to a convicted murder or sex offender. So it is because of this that the steps taken in order to bring these people back to society with a sense of normality, be carefully planned.

Some of these steps may include, but are not limited to coordinated rehabilitation programs that correlate properly to the different offender and his offense. For example you would want a convicted drug solicitor and/or user to enter a program set up to help him to avoid re entering that lifestyle. This would also hold true for any other offender and the crime(s) he committed. Education is another critical step in the structure of this agency.

Often time's education and intervention have proven successful in the reforming process. Youth leadership and intervention programs are critical. So many young offenders today are selling themselves short in part due to misguidance and leadership.

With the introduction of such programs such as scared straight, or even the boys and girls club, these support agencies can assist in the prevention of future criminal misdoings.

In addition to reeducating and rehabilitation there are other steps that are equally as important. Monitoring of convicted felons is the final step before re admittance into society. Through usage of parole officers and electronic surveillance, the whereabouts of these individuals can be closely observed. House calls, hearings, and court dates also go hand in hand with the monitoring aspect of this system. By appointing individuals to various this task, this helps the company achieve it's over all purpose.

The final and probably most important aspect of running such a company is the all important financial aspect. Tax dollars account for the majority of the companies endeavors, however, they do not meet all of the companies many needs. With that, there in lies a problem.

The questions of who picks up the slack fall in to place. Sometimes the aid of private investors and sponsors are needed. In order to convince these financial sources of the significance of your business, it is a must that you have a properly paved executive summary, such as the on just stated, to further back your cause. Throughout the duration of this presentation, the goal is to illustrate a successful business format for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
