Deterrence: understanding that individual has something to lose from committing crime, a. specific: affects individual b. general: affects of  happening to somebody else and society 3. Rehabilitation: education,  treatments-substance abuse, anger management issues 4. Incapacitation:  locking people up, doesn’t exactly eliminate crime, makes the free society  safer a. collective: incarcerate regardless of prior criminal activity b.  selective: incarcerate based on prior criminal history 5. Retribution: victim  compensation programming, reintegration, restorative justice-native  americans)
