The term criminology means "the study of crime." Criminologists concentrate on studying the various forms of criminal behavior, the causes of crime, the definition of crime and societal reactions to criminal activity. Criminologists study such topics as juvenile delinquency, the effects of crime on victims, crimes committed in the workplace, and the response of the criminal justice system to crimes and victims. Areas of interest include: the police, the courts, corrections, and public policy related to controlling or reducing crime.
