Additional Book Details

Arkansas's Criminal Justice System provides a comprehensive overview of crime and criminal justice in Arkansas. The authors are academics who draw upon years of experience living, working, and teaching in Arkansas to construct a text that explores the nature of crime in the state and explains in detail how responses to crime are organized through a diverse array of public and private agencies.

The book includes chapters on Arkansas crime patterns, law enforcement, courts, corrections, juvenile justice, and crime victim resources. Each chapter is specific to Arkansas and sensitive to the distinct demographic, historical, and cultural contexts that shape criminal justice practices across the state. Arkansass Criminal Justice System is designed to be an informative resource for anyone attempting to understand crime and criminal justice issues in the state.

The state-focused scope of this book helps complement generic criminal justice texts by supplying details of immediate relevance to those pursuing careers in law enforcement, corrections, or other criminal justice occupations in Arkansas. As part of a larger fifty-state series, this book might also be of interest to anyone engaged in multi-state comparative studies of criminal justice organization and strategies.
