The police will record once they satisfied that the case as a crime. Many categories of criminal cases can be recorded (Department of Sociology 2011). People claimed that this method provides a more accurate picture of crime to the society compare to other methods since the statistics are collected directly from the police reports. Furthermore, the result expressed in numerical terms so is considered more objective. There are arguments appear that some people oppose that the statistical methods used for incidence of crime measurement.
1. Criminology Criminology is the science of studying how laws are made, the breaking of laws, and the social reaction to the breaking of laws. Criminologists research past criminal events to contribute to decrease the crime rates and develop a society that is less vulnerable to criminal acts. There are different theories that have emerged over the years that have helped criminologists to get to solid conclusions on the relation between crime and society. The study of criminology is important because it helps society understand what the crimes are, and how criminals who commit this crimes are punished.

The results of this study can be used to formulate policy in the state and in other states. The study plays an important role in understanding the nature of domestic violence, and how enforcement of stricter laws against it will affect its prevalence in the community.

Overall, crime displacement is the result of crime-control policies and the amount of opportunities left for offenders. It can potentially be a profitable theory because of the benefits, such as helping to plan strategies in order to prevent crime, but without a doubt is a part of crime prevention that cannot be avoided.
The groundwork of how the criminal justice system is laid today, despite some major tweaks and changes along the way, still has remnants of the classical school of criminology. With people having free will, an attraction to crime, the ability to possibly lower crime through fear of reprimand or punishment, and knowing that crime must be severe, certain, and swift, the components of the classical school of criminology are very helpful and powerful (Siegel, 2011, p. 9, para. 1). Specific deterrence is a great tool to use to show the criminal just how severe a punishment can be (Siegel, 2011, p. 100, para. 1).
“Restorative justice is an approach to crime and other wrongdoings that focuses on repairing harm and encouraging responsibility and involvement of the parties impacted by the wrong.” This quote comes from a leading restorative justice scholar named Howard Zehr. The process of restorative justice necessitates a shift in responsibility for addressing crime. In a restorative justice process, the citizens who have been affected by a crime must take an active role in addressing that crime. Although law professionals may have secondary roles in facilitating the restorative justice process, it is the citizens who must take up the majority of the responsibility in healing the pains caused by crime. Restorative justice is a very broad subject and has many other topics inside of it.
Family violence is a crime that unfortunately plagues many families, partners, and households nationwide. Family violence can range from arguing, to physical altercations, and at times, death. While the name implies only family members can perpetrate this type of violence, boyfriends/girlfriends can carry it out, as well as a household roommate. In order to understand family violence to a greater degree, criminal justice agencies and officers alike, must understand the role both parties play. In addition, criminal justice personnel must understand the different types of violence involved, as well as the victimization it can cause, not only at the hands of the offender, but also by the criminal justice system itself.
Academic and professional research has given us the ability to learn, understand and constantly continue to seek more knowledge about a specific topic in detail. Currently, we as members of society are experiencing several social issues that are criminalistic in nature and that are hindering our safeguard and peaceful well being. In this research, I would like to concentrate on juvenile offenders, both violent and non -violent, and if any rehabilitative efforts are worthwhile in providing them another opportunity to change their lives around? One of the most important issues in question is the rehabilitation of violent juvenile offenders? If there is any available, is it effective?
Crime prevention takes on renewed importance in C.B.P. AND the community becomes a partner to law enforcement in order to address disorder and neglect or other problems that can breed serious crime. As links between the police and the community are strengthened over time, the partnership is better able to pinpoint and mitigate the underlying causes of crime. Following all these principles we can at least attain a new sense of community and at best we can make true the vision of Sir Robert Peel “It should be understood at the outset that the object to be attained is the prevention of crime. To this, great and every effort, of the police is to be directed.
This can show the police are here to help as well as fight crime and the trust of the community won 't be lost after the crackdown. Pulling levers gets positive feedback for its ability to use community service providers to handle problems in the community (Winship and Berrien, 1999). This policing model shows great evidence it works gun homicides(Mcgarrell and Chermak, 2003). This can work with community policing well, since community members would be able to point out the groups that needs to get targeted for intervention. Pulling levers is a special variant of using the main elements of problem oriented policing (Eck And Spelman 1987, Goldstein 1990), which i discussed how problem oriented policing could be used cooperatively with community policing.
