Criminological theories and crime reduction planning: What academics need to provide and what policy makers need - Garrison, Arthur - Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology
Abstract: Criminology provides insight into crime and why people act in deviant ways. But policy makers and community leaders who seek to understand why crime is occurring in their community require more than just explanations, they require answers to the question – so what do we do now? What action steps follow from the proposed theory of crime? In other words criminologists need to provide practical answers to crime reduction. The presentation will demonstrate how various criminological theories were presented to policy makers and community leaders to address the level of violence in the City of Wilmington, Delaware.
