These individuals are called criminal investigators. A criminal investigator is a law enforcement professional who attempts to solve crimes, identify and detain suspects, and prevent future instances of criminal activity. These investigators may work alone or in investigative teams to uncover facts about a case. An investigator may specialize in analyzing evidence and information from a crime scene conducting interviews and searches, or performing surveillance. Depending on a person's specialty, the
In other cases some criminals are born with the lack of humility, which is the ability to put yourself in the situation of the person who you are doing harm to. These people are considered sociopaths. Another theory called the rational choice theory states that everyone has their own thoughts and emotions for which they commit their crimes weather to improve their living standards or to avoid hardships. Intelligence can play a huge role in the mind of a criminal; this is considered the nature theory. A person who does not know any better is much more likely to commit a crime then a well educated person, although this

But in contrast there are very different at the same time. The crime control model is used in the criminal justice system for the prevention of crime. The crime control does not exclude that is possible to make a mistake, but based on the circumstances of the laws, the person is considered guilty until her or she is proven innocent. This model is based on old fashion laws which allow rapid and speedy convictions despite the mitigating factors of the case and the victim. The results, of the crime control model are wrongful convictions, being over-turned and this is a major downfall in the criminal justice system.
For each crime incident coming to the attention of law enforcement, a variety of data are collected about the incident. These data include the nature and types of specific offenses in the incident, characteristics of the victim and offender (NACJD, 2013). The National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), this is when law enforcement agencies collect detailed incident level data regarding individuals offenses and arrest, then submit them using prescribed data elements and data values(FBI, 2013). Uniform Crime Report (UCR), this program provides a nationwide view of crime based on the submission of crime information by law enforcement agencies throughout the country (FBI, 2013). In some cases, self-report studies have been
For example, some officers would take drugs for themselves that they would normally give to the department as evidence to build a case against the offender or offenders. Another example would be that officers would make deals with drug dealers as incentives to get drugs and not make an arrest. Also, monies from drug deals that are seized by police officers sometimes go missing or unreported due to corruption within the department. The most memorable and possibly most famous moment in corruption in policing when it comes to narcotics is the case of Frank Lucas

Theories on Crime Comparison Carl Boone AJS/542 July 25th 2013 Jeffrey Begley Theories on Crime Comparison To understand crime and the elements that help compare and contrast motives, influences, and patterns of criminal behavior; theories are developed under models of thought. This process is called criminology and it is the study of crime and criminal behavior with some focus on lawmaking as well (McShane, Williams, 2010). Criminology has continued to be one of the cornerstones of our judicial system. The scientific research that goes into understanding individuals and societies, along with the variables involved, help the criminal justice system better understand issues that relate to crime. Criminology was first born in the eighteenth century and although it was not initially concerned with the aspect of understanding crime and criminal behavior, “it gained its association with criminology through its focus on lawmaking” (McShane & Williams 2010, ch.2, p. 15).
I am agreed with this statement. Many individuals think capital punishment is against human's rights forever but I think capital punishment is still a compelling approach to discourage violent criminals, in light of the fact that it can offer solace to the victims and their families, it will lessen the government's financial spending, and it is an immense cautioning for the criminals keeping in mind the end goal to diminish homicide rate. According to my understanding Capital punishment is important with the end goal equity should win. It is the execution of criminals for carrying out crimes. In any case, there are couples of discussions and inverse views.
There are also significant costs to society to cover the expenses associated with lifetime imprisonment. The death penalty benefits society because it instills fear into a person, thereby acting as a deterrent to crime. Laws are developed in the United States to deter people from committing crimes. Criminals know that if they decide to break the law, there will be consequences for their actions. Statistics reveal that states with the death penalty have fewer murders per capita.
