CRJS 6111 - Informational Technology in Criminal Justice


(5 cr.) In the 21st century, criminal justice organizations have evolved in the way they use records and data management systems to protect and gather evidence. While new technologies and the use of social media have increased and have assisted criminal justice professionals in tracking and apprehending criminals, there still are challenges for law enforcement, the courts, and prison systems. In this course, students will explore case studies related to challenges with protecting and collecting evidence as well as ethical dilemmas with the use of technology. Students examine how technology is used in criminal law, law enforcement, criminal procedures, or court procedures. In addition, students can look into the future of information technology as it relates to criminal justice.
