Pennsylvania's Criminal Justice System
Pennsylvania’s Criminal Justice System provides a comprehensive overview of the crime trends, criminal law, and the criminal and juvenile justice processes within the Commonwealth. The text describes the structure and role of the state's federal, state, and local level police, courts, and corrections agencies. Also addressed in the book are crime victim services within Pennsylvania, as well as the important rights afforded to victims through the Crime Victim's Act and other legislation. This text affords the undergraduate student reader a deep understanding of the structure and processes of Pennsylvania’s criminal justice system — far beyond that which can be provided by a generic, non-state-specific text. The book is also an excellent resource for law students who anticipate practicing within the Commonwealth.
