Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by a scholar with extensive research experience, this book applies an original approach to assessing criminal justice policies, based on their impact on errors of justice. The study covers the error of failing to bring offenders to justice as well as the errors of imposing costs on innocent people and excessive costs on offenders. Ultimately, it develops a new framework for each major sector of the justice system: policing, prosecution, adjudication and the jury, sentencing and corrections.

Synopsis:

A new perspective on the assessment of criminal justice policy, examining the prospect of assessing policies based on their impact on errors of justice: the error of failing to bring offenders to justice and the error of imposing costs on innocent people and excessive costs on offenders.

Synopsis:

This takes a fresh new approach to assessing criminal justice policies, based on their impact on errors of justice: both the error of failing to bring offenders to justice and the errors of imposing costs on innocent people and excessive costs on offenders. The book borrows from principles of error management in statistical inference and the simulation of quality control processes to develop a new framework to each major sector of the justice system: policing, prosecution, adjudication and the jury, sentencing and corrections.

Synopsis:

Forst takes a fresh perspective on the assessment of criminal justice policy.
