Product Description


‘This book offers a new way of thinking about taking up employment in the Criminal Justice sector. In easy-to-follow steps it educates the reader about the Criminal Justice System and provides a constructive approach to decision-making around what type of employment and in which part of the Criminal Justice System the reader may want to work. The authors clearly understand the demands of employment in this sector and engage the reader in a consistently thought-provoking style.’― Dr. Jane Winstone, Principal Lecturer in Community Justice, University of Portsmouth, UK

‘This book is a very welcome resource that will be helpful to students, educators, careers professionals and those in the early stages of criminal justice careers. It is comprehensive, informative, accessible and very thoroughly researched. The book is organised in a very user-friendly way, with the reflection points, action points and mini case studies being easy to find and helpful to the reader’s practical understanding of the routes into criminal justice work.

There are a plethora of useful additional resources, including websites, provided to aid further investigation. A very helpful read.’― Paul Gaunt, Director of Careers and Employability, University of Chester, UK

'The aim of the book is "to offer a one-stop guide to becoming employable and to careers in the criminal justice sector and beyond."  It succeeds admirably by providing inside information about the profession and by challenging those interested in criminal justice fields to really think about their roles in the profession. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels.' ― K. Evans, Indiana State University, CHOICE Reviews

Format: Paperback
Excellent and well written book that helps students and those looking to change careers paths in the Criminal Justice System. I particularly liked how the book is set out with easy to read information and bite size chunks of writing sandwiched by anecdotes from students/practitioners, reflection and action points. I have never read any book like it that gives you a full overview of the main areas in the CJS, as well as the skills required and application process in all four countries of the UK. I would highly recommend to those who are looking to work in the Criminal Justice System but are not sure on which area is for them, which skills are better or more required in which job and how to apply for the different main professions.
