PADM-GP.24401: Community Issues in Criminal Justice (0.5)

Description: From the police, to the court system, to incarceration, to community supervision, criminal justice system practitioners and policymakers increasingly acknowledge that the community is both acutely impacted by justice system policy and practice, as well as is the critical partner in the generation of public safety and citizen quality of life. This course examines a wide range of criminal justice issues and their impact on the community; also critically examines the community’s role in demonstrating effective solutions, with a particular focus on the New York City criminal justice system and NYC neighborhoods.
