Overview

Criminal Justice: Theory Into Practice guides the student, instructor, and internship site supervisor through the entire internship process, offering advice and information for use at the internship site as well as pre-planning and assessment activities. Students learn basics such as choosing an internship site at either a public agency or a private firm, résumé writing techniques, interviewing skills, and the importance of setting and developing goals and assessing progress. It also serves as a reference tool for professors and supervisory personnel who assist and supervise the student during the experience. The objective of the book is to direct attention to professional and personal issues that occur during an internship program. What you find in this text is the culmination of more than 30 years of testing the authors’ material with criminal justice interns.

  • Updated with information on employment trends, potential placements available on the Internet, setting professional goals, and the pursuit of advanced studies.
  • Explores the impact of the Millenials-generation student as "digital native," focusing on both the benefits and the dangers of social networking, creating and monitoring one’s online identity, and utilizing and developing important skill sets for tech-savvy students.
  • Applies the public policy concept of the "subgoverment" model to understand the complex relationships between criminal justice organizations and their stakeholders.
