Policing and Criminal Justice



March 2010 | 192 pages | Learning Matters
This text provides an accessible and up-to-date introduction to criminal justice for all those undertaking degrees and foundation degrees in policing. It will also be relevant to degree courses in criminology and criminal justice. The book provides a holistic overview of the Criminal Justice System (CJS) and an exploration of the roles of key players within the system and how the police interact with these organisations. It examines some of the principles that underpin the 'modernisation' of the police, in particular how the police service collaborates with partner agencies and the rationale associated with the Change Agenda.

A good resource for students studying modules related to criminal justice. I especially like the inclusion of practical and reflective tasks to allow students to test their understanding.

An ideal introductory text for any student participating on an undergraduate degree programme in Policing, Criminal Justice, or related disciplines. The incorportaion of key information such as, recommended websites, further reading, current legislation and cases encourage further exploration of the discussed topic, whilst case studies and tasks provide opportunities to understand how the theory works in practice.
