Jeremy Ocheltree CRJS 222 Assignment 1 Prof. Hoofnagle Due: 1/25 /08 1) When the phrase “dark figure of crime” is used, it is an approximate representation of the total number of crimes committed that we never hear or find out about. Possibly by raising incentives for turning criminals in to the authorities, or offering tax breaks for evidence that was obtained by any persons that the system can utilize. 2) Decision making in the criminal justice system is broken down into formal and informal decision making. It is also interdependent, meaning multiple agencies decisions influence each other. Formal decision making is what they call “by the book”, which focuses on the written legal documents such at our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Informal decision making on the other hand allows for discretion throughout the entire criminal justice system. This process relies on the knowledge and ability to consider every case as its own and taking into consideration individual situations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
