Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas. The criminal justice system is a fragmented and disconnected system whose components interface with each other in an inefficient manner. The end product of such an organization is often different from its intended mission. Additionally, the system is prohibitively costly. Critics of the system call it an ultra-punitive system that fails to protect its victims and disregards rehabilitation. Although the criticism of the CJS may be valid, the reforms are incremental, reactive, and slow. Consider you are in the management team of a publicly-held corporation that supplies different products to various correctional institutions. Review the following article and comment on it from the perspective of a city manager or a police executive who is contemplating cost cuts by consolidation and elimination of internal units. Assess the validity of the consolidation argument proposed by the author in the light of bureaucratic resistance and institutional inertia. Required Reading Dutta, S. (2010, December 30).
