Purpose: The final assignment (An Application to the Criminal Justice System) is to demonstrate your mastery of how the criminal justice system works. This assignment is designed to give you an opportunity to display your knowledge of the parts and processes of the criminal justice system. You will track the offender from removal from the community by police, to return to the community free of imposed supervision. Careful critical thinking is required. Invest considerable effort in thinking about what you have learned over the course of the term in addressing this final aspect of the mission.
