Criminal Justice includes three distinct systems: Law Enforcement, the Courts, and Corrections. Law Enforcement involves protection of the people and their property and apprehension of criminal violators, as well as a wide variety of community services to assure a high quality of life in the community.

The Court System involves the adjudication of criminal law violators by judges and advocates for the defense as well as the federal, state, and local governments.

Corrections involves the jails and prisons at all levels of government, probation systems in lieu of imprisonment, and parole as a form of aftercare following prison sentences.
