Criminal Justice System Quiz

In this course, you will learn about The Criminal Justice (CJ) System. The CJ system is made up of three major parts: Law Enforcement, Courts, and Corrections. Within each of these parts, many processes occur. “CJ processes” include such things as a crime being reported to police; them arresting a suspect; that person being prosecuted in court; and, if found guilty, imprisoned. These processes are interlinked in that one leads to the other. The CJ process continues until a suspect/convict is “out of the system” due to not being investigated or arrested by police, prosecuted in court, found guilty, or no longer being punished.

A great way to visualize the CJ system is by looking at and studying the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ “Criminal Justice System Flowchart,” shown below.

To see the flowchart, click here: BJS Criminal Justice System Flowchart. To learn the definitions of each process, scroll down to “Contents.”

Instructions: To ensure you can identify the major parts and processes of the CJ System, you will take a quiz. Before taking the quiz, you should review the information on this page; the BJS Flowchart and associated definitions of each process; and the Wikipedia article on the Criminal Justice System, which you will also annotate (see Course Schedule). After, you are ready to take the quiz. Go to D2L and click on the “Week 2: The Criminal Justice System” folder. Then, click on the Criminal Justice System Quiz. The quiz is 20 randomized questions based on the information you reviewed and consists of multiple choice, true/false, multi-select, matching, and ordering. You have 30 minutes to complete it and get one attempt. Once finished, submit your quiz.
