This course provides an introduction to the criminal justice system. The primary goal of the course is to develop a general understanding of the criminal justice system's response to crime in society. It is important to note that the general theme of this course involves the delicate balance between community interests and individual rights that criminal justice decision-making requires. We will explore this theme by examining the criminal justice process in some detail, focusing on how the system is structujred to respond to crime. This requires an understanding of the core elements of the criminal justice system: police, courts, and correction.
