Cj101 introduction to the criminal justice system

Complete the Unit 1 Assignment: What happened to the Lindbergh baby?

Resource: Chapter 1 of your text.

The ability to think critically is a key skill for success in the criminal justice field. It means not taking what you heard or read at face value, but using your critical thinking faculties to weigh up the evidence and consider the implications and conclusions of the situation.

The criminal justice system encompasses three main components: Police, courts, and corrections. These three components interrelate in several ways. First, they interact in the processing of specific cases. For example, police officers’ conduct investigations and make arrests. Offenders must then be processed by the court system, but police officers play a critical role in this process, as they might confer with prosecutors or testify at motion hearings or trials. If an offender is convicted, prosecutors might recommend the sentence and judges may consider prison overcrowding issues when deciding the final sentence.

Second, these components interact at a policy level. The formal and informal decision-making processes of each component can impact the strategies and priorities of the other components. Third, the components are increasingly working together in various ways to respond to specific types of crimes. The interactions between components often result in conflict. Each component focuses on achieving different goals, and the priorities of the different components may not be consistent.
