CJA 464 Week 2 DQ 2 NEW

When we think about CJ policy, it can be easy to compartmentalize the role and responsibility of policing, courts, and corrections into separate systems. While they do operate as independent components, they work together to complete the mission of the CJ system. It is like a clock. Even though the hour hand, minute hand, and seconds hand play a different role in telling time, they operate together for the overall function of telling time. One place where this partnership is most clearly evident is in diversionary programs. There was a time when the role of police was seen solely as enforcing the law, to the letter. This was one of the "improvements" that developed as part of the Reform Era.
