Justice Administration introduces you to the people, practices and policies of justice administration. The content flows logically, from basic justice administration, to police, courts and corrections, and finally, ethical, financial and technological influences. Learn by Doing and Case Study sections support the applied nature of the text, while bolstering your problem-solving abilities.

The text has a palpable real-world flavor not found in most textbooks. This is thanks to the authors' numerous administrative and academic positions in their criminal justice careers.

The 10th Edition addresses the latest issues in the field, the impact of COVID-19, and a new chapter covering mass murders, immigration and cyber threats. New activities and case studies give you the tools to meaningfully synthesize and analyze new material.
