Course Description & Objectives: 

Course examines traditional and innovative practices of crime prevention and repression.  Students will survey programs designed to reduce criminal behavior and risk factors associated with criminal behavior in various institutions (e.g., criminal justice system, schools, communities, and families).  In addition, the course involves further analysis of policies and practices linked to crime prevention and control, with a focus on program evaluation and measurement of success. The course will begin with a foundation that describes the crime problem and introduces the policy cycle and analysis process in terms of influences on development, adoption, implementation and evaluation of crime control policy.  Next, the course identifies specific criminal justice policies including but not limited to deterrence, incapacitation, gun control and rehabilitation.  While examining these and other policies, the course will consider the theories and assumptions these are based upon as well as their strengths, weaknesses and effectiveness of each in achieving various goals.  An examination of the relationship between theories of crime, crime control policy and research/data is a core component in studying crime control that is emphasized throughout this course.
