Economic conditions, rapid demographic changes, alterations in social institutions and extensive drug and alcohol abuse have led to high crime rates in the United States. Parallel social changes in other countries reflect concomitant increases in criminal behavior. Internationally, there is an increasing concern about public safety. Students will learn about the causes of crime, how to measure the extent of crime, and how to critically examine the approaches used to prevent, sanction, and change criminal behavior.
