Week 1 Assignment (Criminal Justice).docx - Application...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

Application: Perspectives on Criminal Justice There are multiple perspectives of criminal justice and the criminal justice system. Each perspective addresses crimes and criminals from a different point of view. No single perspective dominates the contemporary criminal justice system, and all members of the system bring with them their own perspectives on law enforcement (police), adjudication (courts), and punishment (or corrections). By allowing for different perspectives, the criminal justice system works in conjunction with the trends in criminal activity and the people upholding the criminal justice system. To prepare for this assignment: Review the book excerpt from Introduction to Criminal Justice , and focus on the various perspectives on criminal justice. Think about which perspective resonates most with you. Consider the strengths and limitations of each perspective. Also, think about the ethical issues related to each perspective.

    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.
