Description:

Comprehensive introduction to criminal justice text explores the traditional topics in criminal justice. Explicitly addresses the needs of the entry level criminal justice professional, including police, probation and parole officers; prison caseworkers; legal assistants; forensic technicians, and others. The authors process approach demonstrates the legal and practical linkages between agencies within criminal justice, the difficulties inherent in them, and the manner in which they affect the typical practitioner and the policy making process. Causes of criminality, and the distribution thereof, are reviewed early in the text and then linked throughout the text to the issues faced by criminal justice practitioners and policy makers. Integrated ethical coverage includes a focus on the basic premises of criminal justice and the ethical contradictions between them, Ethics on the Line scenarios in each chapter, and a closing chapter on ethics in criminal justice.
