Purpose of this Wikia Edit
The purpose of the Criminology wiki is to provide a comprehensive discussion and evaluation of the main issues in the field of criminology. The primary focus is on different criminological theories and theoretical schools, their strengths and weaknesses, and their policy implications. Other issues addressed are research methods used by criminologists, criminal typologies, correlates of crime and facts surrounding crime and crime rate trends.

Through this Wikia project, we hope to get in touch with criminologists and people interested in criminology from all over the world. Please feel free to contribute to our discussions of theories and to contact us
