Criminologists will study the ways in which certain criminal justice agencies operate, including the law courts, police services, prisons and community-based correction centres and analyse and interpret data received on the incidence of crime and the operation of the justice system. They will monitor new and emerging trends in offending and crime and provide information about crime and the ways in which people are processed by the criminal justice system. They will be in charge to catalogue information about the possible causes of crime and the crimes committed and also will compile crime statistics and develop ways in which crimesolving resources can be most effectively used. They will analyse and develop crime policy and prevention strategies and evaluate all aspects of crime and the criminal justice system. They will also research criminological issues such as those pertaining to offenders, victims of crime and sentencing.
