Once an individual has become a victim of a crime, there is the mystique of the victim not knowing how the criminal justice system operates and what role the victim plays in the system. The police chief of Anytown Police Department has compiled a group of staff members to put together an instructional document that would explain to a victim about the criminal justice system. You and your group are the team tasked with compiling this document.
As a group, draft a paper that depicts the various roles and responsibilities of the criminal justice system components: law enforcement, the courts, and corrections. Include what civil proceedings a victim can seek against an offender. Finally, include a section that describes a victim’s advocacy program, as well as highlights the services and activities provided to crime victims.
