Example text

Criminal justice organizations vary greatly in their size and structure. The vast majority of these agencies in the United States are relatively small and serve suburban and rural communities. For example, 71 percent of jails in the United States are relatively small, housing fewer than 150 inmates or less. At the other extreme, about 9 percent of the nation’s jails house almost half of jail inmates (National Institute of Justice [NIJ], 2001:3). The largest jails are New York City’s Riker’s Island, Chicago’s Cook County Jail, Los Angeles County’s multiple complexes, and Houston’s Harris County Jail (NIJ, 2001).

In spite of claims of professionalism, law enforcement personnel also often face a high degree of formalization. A case in point is the midsize law enforcement agency claiming to be professional and progressive that was in the habit of disciplining officers for being out of their cars without wearing their caps. The judicial process is also governed by a number of written rules and procedures. Colleges and law schools offer classes in criminal procedures that describe in detail the rules and regulations that govern the criminal side of courts.

Organic agencies within the criminal judicial system include small prosecuting attorneys’ offices, law enforcement departments, and jails commanding less than 10 professional personnel. Research or planning departments within agencies will also likely organize as organic systems, taking on an informal organizational structure. It is unlikely that any one agency is purely bureaucratic or organic; both structures are advantageous for different tasks or missions. This is apparent in large bureaucratic agencies that develop organic units within their structures to meet demands and perform tasks not suited to a mechanistic approach.
