Abstract The purpose of the paper was to investigate whether implementation of a crime control model based, in part, on the concepts of COMPSTAT in one southern California city was effective in reducing crime. Additional data were collected from three other cities that served as controls.
Results showed that the program was effective in reducing crime rates in Perris. The effect remained significant even after taking into account time trends and control cities.
Analysis also found that while the program was more effective in lessening total and property crime rates, it was less so for violent crime rates.
It was concluded that strategic and directed policing models e.
Introduction Throughout the history of law enforcement in the United States, the manner in which service has been delivered continues to be a tremendous challenge to overcome. The purpose of this paper was to investigate whether the introduction of a crime-control model based in part on the concepts of COMPSTAT in one southern California city was effective in reducing crime.
Paradigms of Policing—Shifting to a New Model One of the first paradigm shifts followed on the heels of political influence and police corruption, which came about in the middle of the 20th century [ 1 — 6 ].
Measurement for success was nested in crime statistics such as the number of arrests and response times. Given the era and circumstances within the communities and demands on policing, the professional model worked.
Between the mids and into the s our social environment changed, expectations evolved, and, in turn, so did the delivery of police services. Some have maintained that community-oriented policing is more talk than action, ineffective, and a mere philosophy that has failed to be actualized by many departments [ 17 — 10 ].
Whether police departments embraced the idea of community-oriented policing or not, there was certainly a demand for a higher, more personalized, level of service by the citizens being served.
As a summary of this demand and what the expectation looks like at its optimum level of implementation, Walsh and Vito [ 1 ], p. Despite its political correctness and feel-good collaborative components, community-oriented policing fell short of its overall expectation. Many departments, at best, implemented a watered-down version [ 7 ], which proved to be ineffective.
For other departments, it became a philosophy that was spoken in public, but never truly translated to action beyond the level of a subunit e. While crime rates remained high, public fear of victimization continued, and an overall sense that the quality of life in many communities remained low, a new era in policing was developing.
In their analysis of eight cities that implemented community policing programs, Sadd and Grinc [ 11 ] found several challenges that limited the success of this innovative style of policing. In part, the difficulties discovered were internal to the culture and perception of the police officers, whereas others were due to external community forces.
From the perspective of the community, Sadd and Grinc [ 11 ] learned that those neighborhoods that could benefit most from the program i. In spite of the efforts made by law enforcement departments in the past, most continue to struggle with an accurate understanding of crime in our society, and more importantly, they fail to recognize their role.Models of Criminal Justice.
The procedures for crime control, the processing of criminal defendants, and the sentencing, punishment, and management of convicted offenders are closely linked to the guarantees and prohibitions found in the bill of rights and interpretations of .
The author explained that there is a large need for a rights-based approach to be used for criminals during the sentencing process.
Henham feels that the crime control model and the due process model are not adequate. The crime control model is based on repressing criminal activity and maintaining a low crime rate.
There are differences between the crime control model and the due process model regarding the methods used to reduce crime. Crime control puts an emphasis on law enforcement and punishments being strong deterrents for would-be criminals.
Compare And Contrast The Due Process And Crime Control Models Of Criminal Justice which states that the organization of the criminal justice system either do, or should work.
Model of conflict or non-system perspective assumes that the organization of criminal justice do, or should compete. Another difference from the two models due. The crime control model is considered to be a conservative approach to crime that focuses on protecting society from criminals by regulating criminal conduct and justice.
Evaluating the crime control and due process models. To declare that one of these models is superior to the other requires one to make a value judgment. The crime control model reflects conservative values, while the due process model reflects liberal values.
Political climate determines which model shapes criminal justice policy at a specific time.
