I will advise the society to come up with policies that take stern action on criminals as they are a bad example to those around them. As Sutherland posited a person raised by criminal offenders learns to act in a criminal way. Some of the crimes which take on role modeling happen in offices. When the employer or the people at the top of the hierarchy of governance engage in corrupt activities, the followers easily take on their behavior and are more likely to act in a similar manner. This will be my campaign in the Human Resource development partnership. The employees will most often engage in scandals if the boss or other people are corrupt. There is a vacuum in morality and it should be addressed in the places of work. According to Sutherland a person in the high hierarchy plays a fundamental role in influencing how the people who look up to him behave. Also, I will work with local leaders to be organizing an annual event which will bring together the leadership of my state to address the issues of ethics, morality and accountability in the society. This will be taking place in a multifaceted dimension, as there will be emphasis laid on leadership in the workplace and in the family. This is because I have noted that a gap exists in the social system which leads to the problems in the corporate sector or even in the open street violence. Thus by employing the differential theory there can be strides towards a better future. This arises from the ability of parents to inspire their children towards certain goals and objectives. It also applies in the corporate governance where the employees own the job and feel that they are appreciated in the company and that they have a pivotal role to play in the success of the company.

THEORY AND PRACTICE 7 Conclusion In conclusion, by the employment of the two theories I would make the society a better place to live in. This is because the crime rate will reduce, as delinquency will be addressed head on. It is worth noting that these action plans will need a lot of working with the society. The way to solve crime in the society is by starting by addressing the root problems. I believe the action plans I have formulated will be useful in curbing crime. The most important resource in the society is children. When good character is instilled in the early stage, the personalities developed will be strong to stand against crime. Also, the action plan to develop a society that has deep morals is important as role modeling plays an important part in stopping crime. Even those who are of wayward behavior require a second chance to reform and that is why guidance and counseling will be critical.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
