Week 1 discussion: the criminal justice system

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, review (PROVIDED IN ATTACHMENTS) Section 1.2 and Section 1.3 of the Wright (2012) text where the author discusses the structure of the criminal justice system and explores functions within it. In Section 1.4, pay particular attention to Wright’s discussion of the concepts of decentralization and federalism and rationales for the juvenile justice system being kept separate from the criminal justice system. In Section 1.5 and Section 1.6, Wright provides insight on the size of the justice system and identifies factors that distinguish various criminal justice models. Overall, reviewing the content in Chapter 1 of the Wright text will provide you a foundation for exploring the Week 1 prompts and topics. Finally, review the website, FBI: Uniform Crime Reporting (Links to an external site.). https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/ucr
