Forensic Biomechanics Using Medical Records To Study Injury Mechanisms


Forensic Biomechanics Using Medical Records To Study Injury Mechanisms Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The field of criminal justice is constantly changing as new laws are passed, new technology is deployed, old social problems continue to fester and surface, and new social problems emerge. The police are accused of racial profiling, of charging innocent people with crimes they did not commit or that did not occur, and of allowing corruption to run rampant in big-city police departments. At the same time, community policing brings relief to neighborhoods plagued by crime and disorder for decades and the police have become guardians of public safety in the battle against terrorists. Overcrowding in the courts leads to a denial of justice for many defendants, but restorative justice offers alternatives to traditional court proceedings and holds out hope for both victim and offender. New supermax prisons are built to house society's most dangerous offenders while new and exciting alternatives to incarceration are explored. Helping students understand the nature and extent of such charges and the interrelationships among them is the goal of this text.

Book News Annotation:

For students, Cox and McCamey (law enforcement and justice administration, Western Illinois U.) offer an introductory textbook on criminal justice in the US that focuses on the criminal justice practitioners as they work together in a network (rather than the systems approach) and daily operations and procedures, the role of the public, uses and abuses of the system, and the effects of politics. This edition contains updated references, discussion of recent cases, expanded information on ethics and types of crimes, and discussion of federalism, the rise of methamphetamine use, internet crimes, problem and community-oriented policing, new issues in corrections, and victim and witness rights.
