Question and answer
Describe the common models for society to determine which acts are considered criminal.
The two most common models is the Due Process Model and the Crime Control Model. [ As we examine the way the models operate in each successive stage, we will raise two further inquiries: first, where on a spectrum between the extremes represented by the two models do our present practices seem approximately to fall; second, what appears to be the direction and thrust of current and foreseeable
trends along each such spectrum? ]

How does crime relate to the law? What changes would you recommend to better improve the criminal justice process?
Weegy: Justice also refers not only to the fair trial accorded to the citizens of most countries, but also to the just retribution for victims of a crime, as for example, seeing an offender jailed. Criminal justice is always a goal. [ All involved in the arrest, prosecution, defense or judgment of a suspect aim to be fair. However, this goal is not always met, accounting for the flexibility in the application of laws, the changes to laws that are unfair, and the judiciary power of interpretation. ] (More)

What are the instruments for measuring crime?
Weegy: There are two main ways that street crime is measured in the U.S. The first is with the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). This is computed by adding together the major crimes that are reported to the police who in turn report to the F.B.I. [ [ who in turn publish the findings. The other measure of crime comes from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). About 20 years ago it became clear that only a proportion of crimes are actually reported to the police and that if we wanted a more accurate count, we would have to conduct scientific surveys of the population and ask people if they had been victims of crime. This is what the NCVS does. ] ] (More)

Weegy: The most significant predictor was found to be investigating officer accreditation with location, quantity, and type of DNA material at the crime scene also being relevant. [ Accreditation of the Crime Scene Examiner recovering the DNA material was found not to be significant. ] (More)
