Gold medal winner! This interactive crime scenes CD-ROM for introductory criminal justice provides brief video vignettes that allow you to take the roles of key criminal justice system players in policing, investigation, courts, sentencing, and corrections so you'll see the system from the "inside." This simulation CD-ROM uses six scenarios of various crimes (juvenile murder, prostitution assault, arresting force/DUI, search and seizure, embezzlement/white-collar crime, and incarceration classification/parole) to illustrate all of the stages of the criminal justice system. You are able to make choices about the outcomes of the simulation at various decision points in each scenario, thus illustrating the consequences of each choice. The scenarios utilize video, court room drawings, and numerous forms to build the evidence of each case. You can use this exciting and game-like CD-ROM as part of your course work or to explore on your own.
