Policing Matters Series
Good introduction to the CJS
The book provides an overview of the Criminal Justice System and an exploration of the roles of key players within the system and how the police interact with these organisations.
A good resource for students studying modules related to criminal justice. I especially like the inclusion of practical and reflective tasks to allow students to test their understanding.
An ideal introductory text for any student participating on an undergraduate degree programme in Policing, Criminal Justice, or related disciplines. The incorportaion of key information such as, recommended websites, further reading, current legislation and cases encourage further exploration of the discussed topic, whilst case studies and tasks provide opportunities to understand how the theory works in practice.
A helpful reference
