UNIT 1 ASSIGNMENT
1. Compare and contrast the four types of criminal justice systems (process, network, nonsystem, and true system). Be sure to include descriptions and functions of each. Identify the type in which you would be most comfortable working in, and explain why.
2. Discuss the three leadership positions (supervisors, managers, and administrators) in criminal justice agencies. Include specific examples of each leadership position’s roles and responsibilities in your answer. If you had to choose, which position would you like to ultimately hold? Explain your rationale.
3. Explain the criminal justice model. Outline the model by identifying factors that may influence the various paths that an individual may take through the criminal justice system once an arrest is made. Why do you think the basic model, which was created in 1967, is still used today? Do you believe it can or should be improved upon? Explain your rationale.
