In this introductory course learners will use a systems based approach to examine the constantly evolving Canadian criminal justice system. They will examine the roles and functions of each component of the system - police, courts, and corrections in relation to the system as a whole. They will analyze the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the system. They will also explore contemporary related issues, including public/private relationships in the law enforcement context, public involvement in criminal justice processes, restorative justice, and programs designed to reduce crime and rehabilitate offenders.
