Criminology is the study of crimes, and the way we perceive them. The idea is we should be more aware of our surroundings, including the potential to harm ourselves. This includes the crime that we commit. One of the ways criminologists seek to address this is by creating crime maps, one of which I have created, where I have mapped crime hotspots in Chicago’s downtown area.
Crime maps are used to help us visualize clusters of crimes in a certain area. They can be used to determine areas of high or low crime, and therefore areas that are most and least likely to be the next victim of a crime. Another way for criminologists to look at crime maps is to look at the locations of the places where crimes occur. There are some places in which most crime occurs that have relatively low crime rates, and areas in which crimes occur that have high crime rates.
One of the best-known studies of crime maps is done by criminologist Daniel Levinson. He’s developed a theory called “The Map of Crime,” which has proved to be very helpful in determining the causes of crime. Because crime maps are so detailed, they can be used to make predictions about crime.
According to Levinson, a good map of a violent crime would show that the majority of violent crime occurs in the upper half of a city where there are very few people and less crime, and the lower half of a city where there are more people and more crime. This is called the Levinson zone. Because of the low crime rate, the Levinson zone is quite safe, and because of the high crime rate, its area is very dangerous.
The Levinson zone has lots of people and few crime. Criminologists have used this idea to predict places that will have high crime rates, so that they can work out where and how to put security cameras and police cars. They also use this idea to make predictions about crime, such as whether a city will have a high population density and crime rates.
To get you started, a criminologist is a researcher who studies crime. Criminologists, and their students, are also called criminologists, although they are not scientists. They tend to be good at statistics, but not very good at reading words. They have lots of neat ideas about how to make crime less likely, such as the idea of the “one strike” rule, which states that a single violent event is all that separates the truly dangerous from the truly dangerous person.
We don’t usually think of criminology as a career, but of course it is, and it’s a lot more than just studying crime. Criminology is a field of study that offers a very practical and often lucrative career for those who enjoy working with a large number of criminals.
Criminology as a career often involves collecting data on how criminals behave, how they process information, what they are thinking, etc. The field is replete with job titles such as “pimp,” “murderer,” “rapist,” “rapist in prison,” and “killer.” The field also includes a number of graduate programs in criminology, which are focused on a variety of topics.
So what will be your new profession? I’ll bet it’s going to involve you meeting with a bunch of violent criminals to get data on how they process information, what is the thinking, etc. But what’s your new career path? I’ll bet it involves you getting a bunch of violent criminals to do your dirty work for you.
For a few decades, I’ve had my own field of ‘professional criminals’ — this is the title of the field of criminology that deals with the people who commit crimes. Now I am not sure if this is the same as the professional criminals who commit crimes, or if I just made it up. But these are the people who are in prison and on the streets and who make up an important part of the population of criminals.
