black Image of scales on white background with the words, "calibrate the scales" overlaid. As with any set of scales, the scales of justice must, from time to time, be recalibrated. Total balance is never achieved, but all in the criminal justice and legal systems must strive for it as much as possible.

“The reason why an effective criminal justice is indispensable is that it delivers justice for all, by condemning and punishing the guilty and helping them to stop offending while protecting the innocent.” “The central reason why criminal justice is effective is that it provides an effective, efficient, accountable and fair justice process for the public.’’

Most of us recognize the importance that laws play in our society. As members of the community, country or society, we have a kind of “social contract” with the people around us to create laws that will create a safe environment for everyone and make us feel secure walking the streets and interacting fairly with one another.

However, though we abide by these laws and rules every day, we are not the Lawyer in Dubai who did the enforcement, whether we decide to violate or break the law is up to each person and enforcement falls into the hands of the criminal justice.


Without the law enforcement branch of an effective criminal justice, everybody would need to enforce the laws around them. This, of course, brings up many problems such as different legal interpretations, personal prejudice, making emotional decisions and the physical weaknesses being vulnerable to the strong.

This has been part of the evolution of society as a group of people for safety from bandits, and the other benefits of civilization a system was needed to police each person to ensure that the city functions fairly. Without law enforcement or Law Firm Abu Dhabi we have an ‘’every one of them’’ situation whereas law enforcement agencies such as the police provide an organized and well-trained force to protect everyone equally under the law.


Without a court system to with suspects for crimes, we also have problems. An honest and fair court system is designed to examine all evidence peacefully and rationally and give an unbiased opinion.

Perhaps you may have heard the term “judge, jury and executioner” which describes someone with the greatest power to find guilt or innocence and to deliver punishment. While it is important to punish people who break the law, it is important to determine whether they are guilty.

For this reason, the criminal justice system operates under an ‘’innocent until proven guilty’’. Without a fair and unbiased court system, guilt and punishments would probably be determined by one person with overwhelming power or mob mentality based on what most people think is the right choice.


Without a correction system to eliminate offenders from the rest of the society and try to rehabilitate them or determine what made them break the law, they would have fewer and more extreme options for dealing with people.

Although the death penalty continues to exist in some states, it has mostly been abolished, although in the past it was a much more common type of punishment for crimes. Punishments include unnecessary public torture or embarrassment, whipping or imprisonment in extremely bad conditions.

The modern correction system works to provide a system where those accused of crimes are monitored, punished and provided with help to not re-offend with the goal of creating a more productive and less dangerous society.


Although these systems are not perfect, they allow us to enjoy the society we live in today where people feel safe and comfortable going about their daily activities without expecting crime at any turn. It takes a proactive and evolving criminal justice with brilliant and honest individuals in all three branches as well as a society of people willing to work and follow the laws to create and improve our modern world.
