A book designed for Criminal Justice Organization and Criminal Justice Administration classes, written for scholars and practitioners. This text fills a gap in traditional management texts by focusing on administrative decision-making as it relates to planning and managing change at the organizational level. Organizational theories and administrative concepts are clearly defined and applied to criminal justice agencies through four sections: structure, relationships, control, and planning. The book features learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter. Additional instructional materials are available, including test banks and PowerPoints.
