MMPA 6351 - Policy Analysis in the Criminal Justice System


(4 cr.) Professionals who make decisions within the criminal justice system must determine which policies are most effective in preventing crime and protecting individual rights. In this course, students explore and discuss policy analysis and planning in the field of criminal justice and examine the policy context in which the criminal justice system functions. They review key court decisions and explore the tension between constitutionally guaranteed individual rights and crime-prevention and public-safety efforts. Through further analysis of criminal justice policies, students determine how these policies have changed over time, gaining insight into possible future trends of policy development and analysis.
