CRJS 301 Human Behavior in Law Enforcement

In this course students will learn about managing human behavior within a law enforcement agency, how these organizations function, and how humans interact with the organization. The student will learn that life within organizations is often governed very much in similar ways to life outside the workplace, where their actions are dictated by norms, cultures, and standards. These very characteristics show that human behavior is indeed predictable and are use to accomplish organizational goals. The student will come to understand behavior from different levels of analysis: the individual, groups, and organization-wide.This is a required course for the Criminal Justice Administration major.
