You have by now read Chapters 4–10 in Public Policy of Crime and Criminal Justice and should
have a clear understanding of the number of actors within the criminal justice arena that create
policy, including those in the corrections, law enforcement, and the courts among others. Each
actor shares some goals with the others, but some goals are unique to each actor.
In this discussion, we are going to examine the challenges that exist when multiple actors in the
same criminal justice arena are all trying to create policy that necessarily impacts the other
actors. First, review Chapters 4–10 in Public Policy of Crime and Criminal Justice. Next, in your
initial post:
1. Identify an example of a departmental policy effort to address a public policy issue.
2. Focus your explanation on the potential difference between perceptions of criminality,
the public policy issues related to these perceptions, and the reality of the challenges
many political actors face in addressing these issues.
3. Discuss the overall impact on the public that exists having so many actors involved in the
same criminal justice arena—all of whom are trying to create policy to address the same
public policy issue.
In responding to your classmates’ posts, suggest practices that might avoid conflicting policies
generated by multiple actors in the criminal justice arena all seeking to solve the same problem.
Provide citations from the textbook readings as well as your classmates’ posts.
