9780415540513: Criminal Justice Management, 2nd ed.: Theory and Practice in Justice-Centered Organizations

Criminal justice students and practitioners in criminal justice agencies know first-hand the value of effective management; they understand the vital need to develop organizations that meet the expectations of their community members, as well as those of their workers. Employing an innovative, student-friendly approach, this fully-updated second edition of Criminal Justice Management: Theory and Practice in Justice-Centered Organizations examines the complex subjects associated with operating justice-centered agencies.

Authors Mary K. Stohr and Peter A. Collins interweave their comprehensive research with humor and personal anecdotes to make the study of criminal justice management accessible – and interesting – to students. Chapter exercises and study questions provide a springboard for lively class discussion, encouraging students to discover relevant applications for these provocative topics. Through its dedicated pedagogy, this text challenges readers to:

  • initiate human relations management practices,
  • develop and maintain strong ethical practices,
  • provide support for the professional development of staff,
  • use proactive, collaborative and shared responsibility forms of leadership,
  • implement evidence-based best practices in agency programming,
  • build strong bridges within an engaged and informed community.

With an emphasis on putting theory into practice, Criminal Justice Management is an invaluable resource for the development of efficient, dynamic, and resourceful justice-centered agencies. It is perfect reading for criminal justice students, particularly those looking to enter a career in the criminal justice sector.
