Crime & Criminals

Criminology--the study of crime, criminals, criminal behavior, and corrections--may involve many fields of knowledge, including: criminal justice, sociology, psychology, economics, public policy, law, political science, and anthropology.  

Because of this, when searching for  information on your particular crime (or your criminal), databases--which are found under the article tab--should be used.

Take advantage of a broad array of information: reference sources, articles, books, ebooks, and statistical resources.
