Making Crime and Justice Policy (3017CCJ)

Public policy shapes the criminal justice system. It involves deciding what to criminalise or decriminalise, determining fair processes and penalties, and deciding whether to allocate resources to prisons, police or rehabilitative services. This course focuses on who makes these decisions and how, using contemporary case studies and practical skill-based assessment. It does this by exploring how public policy is made and implemented in relation to illicit drugs, youth crime, organised crime, terrorism or other relevant areas (topics will change to reflect current issues).
