Criminal Justice Technology in the 21st Century describes the ways that technology is impacting criminal justice. It is the first academic volume of its kind, and because of that, it serves as a significant primer in the literature. The book represents the concerns of criminal justice teachers, practitioners, and students, and it is presented in four parts: criminal justice education and technology, law enforcement technology, corrections technology, and criminality and technology. Students, educators, and practitioners will find this edition useful as it provides practical knowledge about different technology that is useful on many levels. The second edition contains nine new chapters. Several chapters explore the level to which faculty are using computers in their teaching. Other chapters enlighten the reader on the ways that criminal justice agencies are using the World Wide Web and automation to inform and interact with the public, hire and train staff, collect and manage data better, share data 'seamlessly,' solve field problems, and classify and track offenders. Chapters also discuss how the digital age is producing new techno-crimes whose effects are beyond comprehension. This book is inspiring reading for everyone in criminal justice. Whether one's area of interest or work is police, courts, or corrections, the essence of each chapter can be thought about and discussed as an issue being faced elsewhere in the criminal justice system.
