BBG Communications

The BBG Communications blog is kind of something I invented. I thought it would be interesting to discuss through different communication techniques things that I am interested in. I like to look at new job opps, classic car stuff, and sports.


My ultimate dream job would be to work as a Crown Prosecutor for the city of Victoria B.C., Canada. With this job, I would be able to have a hand in placing criminals before the hands of justice.

Ever since I was a little girl, my mother has worked for the R.C.M.P. in some capacity. I grew up knowing every police officer in town and understood the law in some respect. I have always had a desire to know everything about the legal system, from the time a crime is committed, to the trial and sentencing of that person. I have also been interested in finding out what drives people to commit crimes and this job would give me an up-close look at people’s reasons for their actions. Since then I knew I wanted to go to law school and become a Crown Prosecutor.

A Crown Prosecutor has a huge responsibility to the citizens of that city. They get to protect those citizens from people who may harm them as well as bring them the justice they seek. You can use your discretion on behalf of the accused person and give them a break by presenting plea-bargains or by placing them in a more suitable form of custody, such as a mental institution. You also get to place your opinion as you present your case, such as during your opening and closing statements. It is a chance to come before a jury and/or a judge and present facts that place an accused person as the person who committed that crime.

Everyday you get up, put on a nice suit, and go to work knowing that you are working towards making this world a better place for the next generation of children to grow up in. Your job is to make people accountable for their actions and maybe make someone else think twice before doing that very same action. Everyday is a new adventure and a new chance to make you mark and voice your opinion about criminals’ punishment for their crimes. I truly believe that it is a very respectful way to make a living while trying to help the people around you.

On top of every other plus to this job, there is also room for advancement. After a few years, a lawyer can become eligible to become a judge. With that opportunity, you can really change the face of the legal world by setting precedence. Then after that point, other judges have to follow the same ruling unless they can find a reason to determine that their case is different from the previous one.

I do not believe that there is any other dream job out there for me. I have wanted to become a Crown Prosecutor for as long as I can remember and am proud to say that I am already on my way to fulfilling my dreams. I have just graduated with my diploma in Criminology from Camosun College and am enrolled in third year studies at Royal Roads University.
