Packer identified two competing models in the criminal justice system of democratic societies. The first one being the crime control model, which indicates that the criminal justice system has the goal of apprehending and punishing those who commit crimes. The crime control model can be seen as a grocery store conveyor belt with offenders put on the belt by law enforcement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
