Criminology is the study of crime and criminal behavior, informed by principles of sociology and other non-legal fields, including Psychology, Economics, Statistics, and Anthropology. Criminologists study crime as an illegal action society punishes through the government’s legal system. Researchers focus on the causes, prevention, and correction of crime generally. By contrast, the legal industry’s perspective of crime emphasizes specific crimes and punishments governed by statutes and regulations, as well as established legal processes.
