Describe the differences between the due process and crime control models.

Post Merge: 10 years ago
Another way to view American criminal justice is in terms of its goals. Two primary goals are (1) the need to enforce the law and maintain social order and (2) the need to protect people from injustice. The first, often referred to as the crime control model, values the arrest and conviction of criminal offenders. The second, because of its emphasis on individual rights, is commonly known as the due process model.  Due process—found in the Bill of Rights, particularly in the Fourteenth Amendment—is a central and necessary part of our system. It requires a careful and informed consideration of the facts of each individual case. Due process seeks to ensure that innocent people are not convicted of crimes. The dual goals of crime control and due process are often suggested to be in constant and unavoidable opposition to each other.

The major difference between the crime control model and the due process model of law enforcement is that crime control works to repress criminal activity, and due process works to protect a person's rights. Crime control is more focused on the community well-being, versus due process which focus's more on the person who committed the crime. Crime control also believes that it is better to detain an innocent suspect rather than let them be free until proven guilty. Obtaining evidence becomes the number one priority for crime control. Due process only allows evidence to be collected a certain way. Criminals may be allowed to go free if a there was an error in collecting evidence. For an example, in the O.J Simpson case there were issues involving.
