Compare the differences between community justice and the criminal justice system.
What are the major problems within both systems?
Community justice is an approach to justice that focuses on the needs of the victims and the offenders, as well as the community involved. It views crime as more than breaking the law-it also causes harm to people, relationship and the community. The concept stands under the following principles. One, justice should be focused on repairing harm done by crime. Second, those affected by a crime should be willing to participate in the resolution. Lastly, the work of the government is to maintain law and order while the community builds peace. Victims take an active role in the process, while offenders are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions. This system has several advantages. according to a research done by the government of the United Kingdom, the conclusion was that restorative justice reduces the frequency of reoffending by 14%. It is cost effective, reduces recidivism, and provides both victims and offenders with more satisfaction compared to the traditional justice system
