LAS100 - Criminal Justice System & Community Services

The maintenance of social order and control is fundamental to contemporary society and is exercised through a system of justice. The administration of justice encompasses a number of agencies, each of which necessarily interacts formally with the others. These agencies are the police, the courts and corrections. Additionally, various community and volunteer services assist in the broad justice role. The justice system is dynamic, and attempts to reflect the wishes of the society it serves, but opposing issues are always present. This foundation course examines the roles and inter-relatedness of the three agencies and discusses current issues.
