Criminal Justice

Criminal justice explores the prevention and control of crime, juvenile delinquency, and the administration of justice. Police, prosecution, courts, correctional, and private agencies are all part of the criminal justice system. Organizations involved with crime control, public safety, security, and regulated legal services and functions play a significant role as well.
