What makes a criminal tick? Criminologists are the ones who find out. They study what compels a criminal to commit criminal behaviors, including the degree of influence the individual and society has on certain crimes. They may also study the consequences of crime.
Criminology practice may take the form of study and academic research or working closely with law enforcement agencies. Local, state, and national law enforcement agencies may employ criminologists to help them create profiles for crimes committed as part of an investigation.
Whether they try to help us understand crimes or catch those who have committed them, criminologists perform a vital function in our society.
