CJ 231 - Environmental Criminology

3 cr.

(Prerequisite: CJ 110 )

This course examines the environment of crime rather than characteristics of offenders.  Main focuses are on the distinction between crime and criminality, opportunities and obstacles in the everyday environment for carrying crime out, and means for reducing crime by modifying or planning the built environment so crime is less opportune.
