You work as an analyst for a research agency. You have been asked to make recommendations on the budgets of the three components of criminal justice: the police, corrections, and courts.
Discuss the amount of expenditure of each of the three components. Do you agree with the current breakdown of spending, in which the police spend the most, followed by corrections, and, then, the courts?
Or do you believe that the spending rankings should be adjusted? If so, why?
