As we know, our justice system has been dominated by “get tough on crime” policies for many years. Politicians seem to be stuck with a model they don’t always agree with – other than being very effective for getting votes. Remember our goal is to focus on organizational behavior and administration. As such, stick to the topic rather than offering easy platitudes about the failures of “getting tough” on crime. Assignment: Assess the organizational effectiveness implications of mandatory sentencing laws and the “get tough” approach to law enforcement. Discuss how these measures have impacted policing, the courts and, in particular, corrections. Use the principles of organizational effectiveness to support or oppose such laws. What changes would you support to offset the problems associated with the toughened measures?
