Criminal Justice: Balancing Crime Control and Due Process showcases the ways that criminal justice systems operate according to the at times conflicting, and at times complementary, goals of crime control and due process. Criminal Justice: Balancing Crime Control and Due Process helps students improve their critical thinking skills and evaluate why criminal justice practitioners make the decisions they do when processing criminal offenders. Criminal Justice: Balancing Crime Control and Due Process: * Helps students organize and understand criminal justice as a system that is often characterized as decentralized, disorganized, and even chaotic. * Includes the essential materials of criminal justice presented in 12 clear, concise, scholarly, and, at times, fun chapters. * Provides a core understanding of crime, law, and justice and the ways that three big players (police, courts, and corrections) dispense crime, law, and justice. * Uses due process models developed by Herbert Packer.
