COURSE OVERVIEW: Welcome to “Introduction to Criminal Justice”, a Bachelor Level course. I am pleased to instruct you in this course, which will lay the foundation for much of the work to come in the Criminal Justice curriculum.
In the field of criminal justice there are three major branches or fields. Law Enforcement, Legal/Courts, and Corrections. Law Enforcement unholds the laws that are defined by the Courts. The punishment decided by the Courts is then administered by the correctional department. None of them cannot function without the other. What good would a law be if there was noone to enforce it? What good would arresting a person be if there were you judges to hear the case? And what good would a sentence be if there were no prisons to house the guilty?
