There are few opportunities to give the police increased agency in actively pursuing criminals. If the police are given more power, perhaps they would be able to catch criminals before they could do serious harm to people. This rationalization is what leads to governments being sanctioned to set up cases which criminals may plead innocence due to entrapment. Of course, it is the goal of the police to set up instances and circumstances which are not affected by entrapment law. Entrapment is a defense to a criminal charge in which the entrapped individual becomes the victim of officials overusing their power in hopes of deterring crime.
Robert Apel’s paper, published in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology, stated that the visibility of the officers, sometimes called cops on the corner, projects a credible threat of detection and apprehension. (Apel, 2013). Another way that police deter crime is by increasing their arrest and tickets. “Police deter crime when they do things that strengthen a criminal’s perception of the certainty of being caught.” (Five Things, 2016). When police have “crackdowns” on certain crimes, the general population begins to avoid committing those crimes, because the increased possibility of being caught.
First, one factor that the court should weigh when looking at the government’s interest in public safety is “crime prevention and detection.” United States v. Hensley, 469 U.S. 221, 228 (1985). Crime prevention and detection is directly related to public safety because when crime is detected, it can be prevented by apprehending criminals and getting dangerous criminals off the street.The interest in capturing criminals is “particularly strong when the criminal activity involves a threat to public safety.” United States v. Moran, 503 F.3d 1135, 1142 (10th Cir. 2007).When looking at the nature of the offense, the court should also look at the crime and pay “particular attention to the potential for ongoing or repeated danger . . .
The last purpose of criminal law is to protect the community from criminals. Criminal law acts as the means through which the society protects itself from those who are harmful or dangerous to it. This is achieved through sentences meant to act as a way of deterring the offender from repeating the same crime in the future. Criminal law has several purposes depending on how people view it. A few of the functions of criminal law are to divide criminals from society, rehabilitate the criminal and punish the offenders.
The American prison system has long touted the principal of deterrence – meaning that crime can be controlled by giving very harsh sentences to those who are caught, hoping that future crimes will be avoided because a would be perpetrator sees and fears what the potential punishment of following through with such an act might be. The idea that a single person’s punishment is going to keep others from committing a crime a key argument for our system of crime and punishment. This paper is going to focus on this currently failing policy of deterrence, examining its true nature, and then discuss its place, if any, that it has in our law enforcement system. To fully understand the scope and nature of the problems related to deterrence, one must understand a few facts about deterrence itself. Many people often confuse deterrence with retribution or punishment, but that it is not.
Research should be conducted on the police officers, judges and prosecutors on how often discretion undercuts the harsher punishments that have been advocated throughout not on an individual’s rational thinking strategy or a person’s perception of risk taking. No individual will take a gamble on a robbery charge if the outcome is a guarantee, severe and swift collar by a cop and punishment by a judge.

213) His belief is that instead of controlling crime, we should be more interested in the value system and the fairness of justice. I think that modern society favors the crime control model because law enforcement tries to maintain order in society while trying to incorporate finding out the truth and solving a crime. They treat the arrested as if they were already guilty and emphasize on arrest, prosecution and conviction of those who have broken the law. Police are allowed to interrogate a suspect, however they must make sure that they do not coerce a false confession because “it may result in the conviction of an innocent man . .
Among the goals of rational choice theory is to explain all types of crime (Cornish and Clarke, 1986). However, it does not propose that there is an underlying unity between different types of crime like other theories. Instead, these diverse elements are important in explaining why such events occur. Also, it incorporates factors that lead to crime, emphasizes the pattern of decisions throughout a criminal career, and accounts for situational variables of crime. In comparison, the deterrence theory proposes that the fear of legal punishment diverts people away from crime, while rational choice theory advances that in the act of choosing whether or not to commit a crime the benefits are weighed (Stafford and Warr, 1993; Cornish and Clarke, 1986).
(Crime control model) This paper will compare and contrast the role that the due process and crime control models have on shaping criminal procedure policy. Some of the differences between the due process model and the crime control model are in the due process model people that are arrested are perceived to be innocent until proven in a court of law. The crime control model believes that the people that are arrested are guilty and need to be punished by the government. Another difference with both models is the due process model believes that policing within the criminal justice system is essential to maintaining justice within society. The crime control model believes that the arresting of people in the criminal justice system has a negative effect and slows down the process of the criminal justice system.
Business intelligence is very necessary during a bribery investigation. According to Heissner (2015), there are two characters of business intelligence. One is to provide information in order to explain the case and another one is to prevent a greater area with examining the completeness of business partners and prevenient target markets. Besides, business intelligence is a very effective evidence in a bribery case. Those analysis which is from relevant paper and data disclose those links between corporations and the personal lives of the criminal, or other economic actions of the criminals, which lead further into the suspicious business activities (Heissner, 2015).
