- Course PurposeWelcome to AJS-200 Current Issues in Criminal JusticeIn this course, we will be studying the major current issues facing the criminal justice system. We will use as our starting point the 2015 President's 21st Century Policing Task Force report on the police. This report came about after the death of Michael Brown, shot and killed by a Ferguson Missouri police officer. Many of the significant challenges to the way policing is carried out today came about following that one event. This course will allow you the student to examine the different calls for police reform and research the pros and cons of each. This course is an OER course meaning that there is NO TEXTBOOK to purchase. Instead, we will identify and use as our training material the governmental documents and other open resource documents on the internet to gain our insights into the topic of each week.
