CRJU 517 - Studies in Crime Prevention: Understanding What Works

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: CRJU 500, which may be taken concurrently; and CRJU 504 and CRJU 505; or consent of instructor
This course conducts a comprehensive examination of crime prevention programs in the United States. In addition to the analysis of program features (e.g., assumptions, concepts, process, outcomes, evaluation), students will also review the social and political climates surrounding crime prevention programs. Because these initiatives are wide-ranging and often occur outside of the criminal justice system, students will learn about crime prevention programs based in the following venues: the family, the school, the community, and in job training and placement programs.
