Overview

The interdisciplinary nature of criminology makes it a difficult term to define. There are several ways of looking at it, which depend on the background of the person by whom it is being defined.

Criminology is:

". . . knowledge concerning the etiology, prevention, control and treatment of crime and delinquency. This includes the measurement and detection of crime, legislation, and practice of criminal law, as well as the law enforcement, judicial and correctional systems."

In brief, the study of Criminology deals primarily with crime and punishment and our understanding of crime in the social context.
