Criminal Justice Leadership
A group for practitioners, academics and students to discuss leadership issues in criminal justice.
Criminal Justice is the enforcement of societal norms and values through a legal system. It involves: prevention of crime; detection of criminal offenses; investigation of criminal offenses; apprehension of offenders; representation and prosecution of accused offenders; disposition of offense (such as a trial); and, the imposition of a penalty (such as prison). Criminal justice leaders work both in the dynamic environments of the “street” and the often highly controlled environment of the courts and prisons.
The often intense and challenging nature of criminal justice offers leaders from all walks of life an interesting lens through which to explore, develop and ultimately use leadership skills.
