The sixth edition of Criminal Justice in Canada provides students with a comprehensive view of how our criminal justice system attempts to bring “justice” into its policies, operations, and court decisions. This approach involves a discussion of the major agencies of our justice system and the manner in which they operate to identify, apprehend, process, and control offenders while at the same time protecting the rights of individuals. In this sixth edition, recent initiatives to control crime and criminals are discussed and updated, including anti-terrorism legislation, gun control measures, mandatory minimum sentences, and mental health courts. In addition, various new initiatives that attempt to better deal with crime and criminals are reviewed, such as community courts, human trafficking, and gender responsive programming.
