The concept of ‘broken windows’ is appealing to police departments attempting to reduce crime and restore order in their communities. From a police perspective, not only can order maintenance assist in meeting citizen demands for a government response to disorderly conditions, but it can also help in potentially deterring more serious crime from occurring. Several studies have found an association between order maintenance policing and crime reduction. Corman and Mocan (2002) determined that minor offense enforcement was linked to the reduction in serious crime in New York City.
The government should ensure that the police patrol more areas of the park to ensure that no sexual behaviour/intercourse is happening as if the police are more strict on this law individuals will eventually stop committing the crime. This will decrease the amount of condoms being on the floor, which decreases the chance of it imposing a risk towards a child. The second way of trying to minimize the risks caused by used condoms being on the floor is by the government installing CCTV cameras throughout several locations within the park recording faces and the individuals who are committing the crimes should be given community service if identified. The individuals who are given community service should be given the duty of cleaning the parks and ensuring that all condoms located within the park and disposed of and are not within the presence of children.

The government has taken notice and legislation has commenced that requires the use of government prevention programs to help assist the states in reducing crimes. The Government places a strong emphasis on preventing juvenile crime and rehabilitating young offenders using diversionary and restorative justice programs rather than the traditional criminal justice system (NSW, 2012). The idea is to stop juveniles from committing crime before they actually do. They want to put a stop to juveniles who commit crime by creating special programs that teach them that committing acts of violence are normally a sign of future criminal behavior. Educating communities and children about the dangers of substance abuse and violence, the behavior will decline.
Objectives of Punishment within the U.S. Corrections System CJA492 January 28, 2013 Melissa Andrewjeski The state and federal objectives of punishment are the consequence or penalty for a crime that was committed. The punishment is to ensure that the offender is adequately punished for the offence. The punishment is to prevent the crime by deterring the offender and other persons from committing similar offences. In other words the punishment needs to be severe enough to make the offender not want to reoffend. The punishment is to protect the community from the offender by keeping them off the street, and trying to reconcile if this person wants to change for the better, in essence to also promote the rehabilitation option to the offender which could help denounce the conduct of the offender, but ultimately for the offender to recognize the harm done to the victim of the crime and the community.
I am going to produce a report which outlines the current crime and disorder legislation, I will be explaining about different partnerships in which help to reduce crime and also I will be telling you about two different acts such as the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, I will be explaining what these acts are and what they do to help prevent crime. The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 is an important piece of legislation and is also an act of the parliament of the United Kingdom, this act was put into place to prevent crime and disorder. When this act was put into place the key areas were the introduction of Anti-Social Behaviour orders, parenting orders, sexual offender orders. These key areas granted local authorities, both public services and society more responsibilities with regards to strategies for reducing crime and disorder, also to support victims of crime to help agencies to work together to make sure that appropriate sentences and orders were issued to offenders. Which resulted in communities being safer places for people to live.
The Ineffectiveness of Sex Offender Registration Laws Using Labeling and Social Disorganisation Theories. Name: Jasmine Jovcic Course: Bachelor of Criminology Unit: CRM 206: Criminology Unit Coordinator: Guy Hall Submitted: 3rd of October, 2012 Word Count: 1 900 The Ineffectiveness of Sex Offender Registration Laws Using Labeling and Social Disorganisation Theories. Laws such as Megan’s laws arise in the presence of a growingly concerned community in the face of sex crimes. This increases demand for a more intense measure to punish and monitor the offender, as well as provide the community with the ability to protect itself and the children in it from becoming victims. With legislative changes around the world including that of Megan’s law in the United States of America (USA) and Sarah’s Law in England, it is no surprise that states around Australia, including Western Australia (WA) are following in the lead.
This intern will reduce the time for a prisoner to go through the judicial system, most inmates spend a good deal of time waiting for their court appearance, if they are innocent then this conflicts with their work and life. The federal and state governments also spend an astronomical amount of money on fighting Marijuana as well. For example 100 million dollars a year is spent on
prisons, and each year more than 700,000 leave federal and state prisons and return to communities. Unfortunately, within three years, 40 percent will be reincarcerated. One reason for this is that ex-offenders lack the knowledge, training, and skills to support a successful return to communities. Trying to reduce such high recidivism rates is partly why states devote resources to educating and training individuals in prison. This raises the question of how effective — and cost-effective — correctional education is — an even more salient question given the funding environment states face from the 2008 recession and its continuing aftermath.
Juveniles Tried As Adults John Doe English 1A Professor Education November 13, 2014 Juveniles Should Be Tried As Adults For Violent Crimes. Over 500,000 juveniles are taken into custody every year in the United States. Although the arrests of juveniles may fluctuate on a yearly basis, Snyder and Sickmund (2006) stated in 2003 alone there were 2.2 million arrests made comprised of persons under the age of 18. There are roughly 12.5 million arrests made every year in the United States and with 2.2 million of those arrests being juveniles, that enormous number becomes a very alarming one. Two hundred and fifty thousand juveniles are tried and sentenced for their crimes as adults every year in the United States.
