#1 market choice for justice administration courses

Using an active-learning approach and real-world examples, Justice Administration: Police, Courts, and Corrections Management examines all relevant facets of the criminal justice system and includes practical exercises in most chapters. The text flows logically, from basic justice administration, to police, courts, and corrections, and finally, ethical, financial, and technological influences. The 9th edition focuses on accountability — particularly of the police, in the aftermath of police shootings of unarmed minorities — and includes a new chapter on homeland security.
