Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This solution-oriented college-level text examines policies and practices used by criminal justice agencies throughout the United States. Its premise is that it's not enough to lock people up, and that something must be done to prevent the likelihood that juveniles will commit crimes and then become repeat offenders. Sections cover crime challenges such as gangs, terrorism, and media coverage of "murder and mayhem"; policing; the courts; correctional issues; technology; and gender issues. No index. Annotation c.
