This subject will explore the application of criminology to crime reduction. The study of criminology in the context of crime aims to develop reflective criminal justice professionals who can apply evidence based best practice to selected crime problems. It will critically analyse traditional and post-modern crime prevention strategies and equip police, community managers, and those working in crime prevention roles to work collaboratively with community groups to achieve crime reduction. Emphasis is also placed on the development of academic literacy and learning skills to assist course participants with successful transition to tertiary study.
