Management is the art of overseeing, controlling, and exercising authority over the workforce of an agency and the organizational activities needed to guide it to accomplish a purpose or function. “Any criminal justice organization is a predetermined arrangement of persons whose interrelated tasks and specialties enable the total aggregate to achieve goals”. In the offices of public prosecutors, in the offices of the public defenders, and in private law offices handling criminal justice cases, most of the lawyers handling cases are on the “line” doing the primary work of the organizations they serve. The ideal criminal justice manager must be deliberative, combining coordinating, planning, budgeting, and decision-making into a single synthetic process. Much of criminal justice policy is made by the legislature, but laws often are vague or provide only general guidelines. One of the few exceptions to the rule that most criminal justice careers begin with line appointments is found in the military.
