Criminal Justice-COLL | Private Security
P300 | 9842 | Head


This course explores the individuals, not for profit agencies, and
corporations that exist to supplement the efforts of the traditional
criminal justice system maintained by local, state, and the federal
governments.  Every segment of the criminal justice has a private
counterpart, and these entities have received scant attention from
criminal justice researchers.  Many guest speakers will be utilized
to expose students to possible career opportunities.  The course
will track through the criminal justice system, examining private
policing, private judicial practitioners, private prisons,  and
private juvenile centers.  Course requirements typically include a
mid-term and final exam, as well as a group project that examines in
detail a specific area of criminal justice privatization.

Class meeting:  Tuesday and Thursday, 1:00-2:15
