Criminal Justice-coas | Criminal Justice Management
P411 | 1555 | McGarrell


This course deals with the topic of management in bureaucratic
organizations.  We will consider these issues generally and more
specifically in the context of criminal justice organizations.  A
primary focus will be on management theory and the relationship
between management practices and issues such as the satisfaction,
alienation, and effectiveness of employees.  We will also consider
broader issues of organizational effectiveness and the relationship
between the organization and the environment.  More specifically, we
will consider the examples of the community policing movement and
juvenile corrections, and the issues of internal and external
organizational change that arise.  The course is offered as a service
learning course.  For students pursuing the service learning option
there will be weekly meetings out of class in either policing or
juvenile corrections settings.  For students not electing service
learning there will be two independent research projects.

Readings: Osborne, D. and T. Gaebler, "Reinventing Government"
