Introduction to Administration of Justice
Description:This course introduces students to the criminal justice system in the United States in the context of the relationship between theory and application. Focus is placed on examining crime measurement, theoretical explanations of criminal behavior, responses to crime, components of the system, how the systems work together and compete with each other, and emerging evidence-based practices in reducing recidivism. It also examines the evolution of the principles and techniques utilized by the justice systems and the evolving forces that have shaped those principles and approaches. Although justice structure and process is examined in a cross-cultural context, emphasis is placed on the U.S. and the California justice systems, specifically the structure and function of U.S. police, courts, and corrections. Students are introduced to the origins and development of criminal law, legal process, and sentencing and incarceration policies. Portions of instruction may be offered online; may also be offered fully online. [C-ID AJ 110]
