Management within the justice domain involves considerations of controlling, coordinating, leading, organizing, planning, staffing, and directing. No solitary approach for executing these functions exists. Instead, each separate justice system entity represents a unique instantiation of management endeavors and activities. Essentially, the management paradigms that are successful for one justice system entity may be completely ineffective for another organization.
Management and Administration for Criminal Justice Organizations provides insight into management concepts that may be meaningful and beneficial for readers and their respective organizations.
This publication represents an overview of the primary concepts of management within the context of the justice domain. Examples and discussions are framed within practical contexts to facilitate good understanding of the management functions.
