It has been said that the quality of a nation's civilization can be largely measured by the methods it uses to enforce its criminal law.

We in the United States deal with our criminals through a complex maze of organizations commonly referred to as the criminal justice system. This system is composed of police, courts, corrections and a multitude of supportive professions which are ore or less actively engaged in dealing with criminals within the guidelines of our federal and state constitutions.

Only through an active educational effort by criminal justice personnel and students planning to enter the profession can we hope to attain the high degree of professionalism so necessary to create and maintain a criminal justice system which will mirror our otherwise advanced civilization.
