Summary

Providing coverage of modern management theory, this text emphasizes the application of management techniques appropriate to each area of the criminal justice system. By focusing on the "how's" as well as the "why's," this text prepares students for dealing with real management issues. CRIMINAL JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONS is known for being thorough, approachable, and practical. It is praised for having strong pedagogical features, such as "Work Perspectives" and "Case Summaries".

Benefits:

  • NEW! The text has been updated to reflect developments in both theory and practice in the criminal justice field, including incorporation of new literature and the application of new practices that have affected the workings of criminal justice organizations.
  • NEW! A more comprehensive discussion on decision-making and its relevance to criminal justice administration has been added. A particular emphasis has been placed on making the models of criminal justice decision-making more understandable.
  • Provides an overview of the criminal justice system and how management issues reach each area.
  • Provides a thorough and approachable discussion of theory as well as practical management material.
  • Includes numerous case studies, case study questions, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading.
  • NEW! New focus on the effects of recent initiatives on criminal justice administration and management provides insight into topics such as, privatization and correctional administration, quality of life policies and their impact on police legitimacy, and the Internet, crime, and criminal justice administration to mention a few.
  • NEW! Case studies have been expanded and updated, and some chapters contain new case studies.
  • NEW! The "Work Perspectives" sections have been updated, with three new administrators writing about their experiences working in the criminal justice system. The three new "Work Perspectives" are written by a warden, a training director for a state agency, and the Executive Director of a residential treatment facility for women.
  • NEW! Chapter Eight has been completely rewritten to be more focused and directed toward measures of evaluation and their usefulness to employee supervision and management. This includes specific guidelines for personnel evaluation within criminal justice organizations.
  • NEW! An explicit introduction and explication of internal constituencies within criminal justice organizations has been provided in Chapter One to focus and direct subsequent chapters. A particular emphasis is placed on the distinction between management and leadership and the relevance of this distinction to criminal justice administration. Implications from this distinction for criminal justice administration are discussed.
  • NEW! Throughout relevant chapters, key differences between public and private managers and administrators are discussed. The discussions highlight both similarities and dissimilarities between the private and public sectors, and the authors show why this distinction is useful to understanding criminal justice administration. The authors also examine the influence that privatization has had on criminal justice administration and management, examining its effect on police, courts, and corrections.
  • NEW! A new discussion in Chapter Eight focuses on recruitment and personnel practices and how they fit into the issue of employee supervision. The focus is on the impact of recruiting more diverse types of employees, e.g., women and minorities, on the administration and management of criminal justice organizations and the effect of major legislative reforms, e.g., Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), on criminal justice administration.
  • NEW! A more detailed conclusion section is provided in Chapter Fifteen. This ties the chapters together and summarizes the major points of the book. The authors provide clarification of why an understanding of research and its application is useful to criminal justice administrators.
