4/4 Journal Entry: Safety Issues
Forensic psychology professionals often work in high-risk settings, such as correctional facilities, police departments, various law enforcement agencies, and courtrooms. Employees in these types of settings typically receive additional compensation, such as higher salaries and/or lower age requirements for retirement, due to the risk involved. In many cases, trainings, policies, and procedures are in place to minimize risk and protect employees. It is important to examine any potential safety risks present within your field experience setting and be aware of trainings, policies, and procedures in place to protect yourself.
