Criminal Justice is the government-controlled, systematic practice of applying laws for the purpose of social control in society; and for the prevention and lessening of crime and for using court and legal procedures, which necessitates penalties and sanctions for law violations. The criminal justice system consists of three components; Law Enforcement (Police), Judiciary (Courts) and Corrections (Jails, prisons, probation and parole). Students receive instruction on the function of each component at the local, regional and national level.
