Arlington, VA (PRWEB) May 18, 2006
Renee Cobb is a consultant in field of justice and public safety. Talented information technology and management consultants often work on projects in the justice arena without prior knowledge of the justice system, its agencies and the relevant information systems. Unfortunately this lack of knowledge results in longer more costly projects at taxpayer expense.
In response to this issue, Ms. Cobb has written an easy to use reference guide entitled Justice and Public Safety Reference Manual: A Practical Guide to Justice and Public Safety Agencies and Their Information Systems. This reference manual provides an overview of both criminal justice and public safety. It discusses the relevant agencies, their functions, and the information systems typically used by these agencies. It contains an extensive glossary and lists functional standards, funding agencies, justice organizations and associations and their websites. It was primarily written for any technologist or business analyst tasked with working on information systems within the fields of criminal justice and public safety, although it would be useful to an individual needing an overview of the justice system. A detailed preview of the table of contents is available.
