The course focus on breadth rather than depth. They put you in contact with a lot of different areas of research on Criminal Justice Psychology and like "Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy", it's a great opportunity to learn some broad concepts and put away certain prejudices we may have from "common sense" or from watching/reading fiction. You won't come out an expert, but it should really help you especially if you work in Law/Crime, etc.

Great course. The Crime 101x really put a great effort in this course. If you are interested in psychology or law you will derive great pleasure of this course. You learn about eyewitness memory, jury selection, offending profile and much more while interacting with an amazing story about a fictional crime.
