CRMJ/SOCA 365  |  Race, Crime, Law

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way of life across the globe. But how has it impacted policies and operations in the US criminal justice system? And what is the impact for people of color given they are disproportionately impacted by criminal justice policies and experience the highest rates of COVID-19 infections and deaths?

Student  presentations will include research on how  COVID-19 has impacted law enforcement, the  courts and corrections and their findings from  interviews with criminal justice professionals and  elected officials regarding challenges during the  pandemic and how they have been addressed.
