For the LSE 'Crime and Society: Representations and Realities' module, the indicative readings are:

Harding, J., Davies, P. and Mair, G. (2017) An Introduction to Criminal Justice, London: Sage
Newburn, T. (2009) Criminology: Key Readings, Cullompton: Willan
Newburn, T. (2017) Criminology, London: Routledge
Newburn, T. (2018) Criminology: A very short introduction, Oxford: Oxford University Press
Open University (2016) Criminology Beyond Crime, Free course
Roberts, J.V. (2015) Criminal Justice: A very short introduction, Oxford: Oxford University Press

It looks like the line in bold above is a free online course - that sounds like it would definitely be worth doing, and a great thing to mention on a personal statement.
