This book is a thoroughly up-to-date account of the UK criminal process — its framework, institutions, participants, and practical everyday context. This re-styled edition of the authors' highly successful Introduction to the Criminal Justice Process (first published in 1995) takes account of the large scale changes that have impacted the Criminal Justice System (CJS) over a few short years. It will be of considerable value to anyone seeking to put these changes into perspective. Accessible and well-informed, it can be read on its own as a basic introductory text or enhanced by the 'top down' approach of Waterside Press' The New Ministry of Justice and The New Home Office. The Criminal Justice System looks at all the main tasks of the CJS in England and Wales, from the investigation of crime and the arrest of suspects through court remands and key preliminaries to trial, sentence, and beyond. In a concise and readily understood way, the book sets out the powers, responsibilities, and day-to-day methods and practices of each of the criminal justice services. It covers the role of the police, the Crown Prosecution Service, Criminal Defence Service, judges, magistrates, the National Probation Service, HM Prison Service, the Parole Board, as well as the role of the private, voluntary and non-statutory sectors. The book also ranges from crime prevention strategies to victims and restorative justice, from moves to create enhanced procedures and modern-day rules and standards to the importance of values such as fairness, integrity, decency, ethics, and human rights.
