Welcome to the Discussion Forum!
Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. If you have not done so lately, please review the Rules of Discussion.
For your follow up post…review the responses provided by your peers. Engage in conversation, or even civil debate, as you discuss their insights and viewpoints. You may ask questions for clarification (if you are confused by their initial post) or pose questions that advance the conversation. You might even find a topic that leads you to further research in the area!
Discussion Prompt #1
Identify and describe at least three roles that police and law enforcement play in the prevention and the reduction of crime.
Discussion Prompt #2
Herbert L. Packerâ€™s heuristic tool is comprised of two normative patterns: the crime control model and the due process model. The crime control model emphasizes the repression of crime as the most important function of the criminal justice system, and the due process model values the freedom of individual citizens from unjust acts committed by the state. In your opinion, should criminal justice swing toward the crime control model or the due process model? Explain your answer.
