Course Details

CJ 220 Overview

This course will introduce, examine, and provide students the skills with which to analyze criminal justice policies. This course will emphasize a conceptual approach rather than a statistical focus to studying the creation, implementation, and evaluation of criminal justice policies. Although this course will focus more on the steps involved in the evaluation of criminal justice policies it also will address the existence of criminal justice policies and their relevance to the success of the social institution known as the criminal justice system (acknowledging the operations of each criminal justice component -- law enforcement, courts, and corrections). Prerequisite: CJ 101 or instructor consent.
