Introduction to Criminal Justice
Written Assignment 1
Compare and contrast the Crime Control Model and the Due Process Model.
Crime Control places primarily emphasis on the right of society to be protected from crime and violent criminals. The Due Process places primacy on the right of the individual to be protected from the power of the government. Crime Control allows law enforcement to do what is needed to find evidence. The Due Process Model sort of limits that evidence can be found. The Crime Control believes that people who are arrested are guilty should be punished by the government. The Due Process considers that the police in the criminal justice system is necessary to maintaining justice in society.
The Due Process and Crime Control Models both are significant to the criminal justice system and play a major role in identifying crimes and interpreting the criminal justice system. Both the models focus on tackling crime and trying to reduce crime. Trying to punish a person or people who have committed a crime/act are similarities between both models. Between the Due Process and Crime Control Models, it seems like there is more differences than similarities.
