Criminal Justice in the United States is in the midst of momentous changes: an era of low crime rates not seen since the 1960s, and a variety of budget crunches also exerting profound impacts on the system. This is the first book available to chronicle these changes and suggest a new, emerging model to the Criminal Justice system, emphasizing:

  • collaboration across agencies previously viewed as relatively autonomous
  • a focus on location problems and local solutions rather than a widely shared understanding of crime or broad application of similar interventions
  • a deep commitment to research which guides problem assessment and policy formulation and intervention.

Ideal for use in graduate, as well as undergraduate capstone courses.
