University of Phoenix

The criminal justice system is comprised on three basic levels, policing, justice, and corrections. There are two models of criminal justice system which tries to explain how justice is achieved. The first model is the consensus model or the system perspective, which states that the organizations of a criminal justice system either do, or should cooperate.
