Overview

Law enforcement officials try to prevent laws from being broken and protect people from being victimized through policies and safeguards meant to stop crime before it is committed. With an emphasis on break-throughs and successes, Crime Fighting and Crime Prevention explores a wide range of crime-prevention techniques, from computer databases that manage police deployment to neighborhood watch groups and other outreach programs that bring communities together to fight crimes. It explains the different branches and levels of law enforcement, the concept of jurisdiction, and what steps civilians can take to safeguard themselves and their neighborhoods against crime.

The Criminal Justice set takes readers on a step-by-step journey through crime, law enforcement, and criminal justice with a focus on these subjects in the United States of America. Each volume explains a major facet of crime and punishment and places it in context of the criminal justice system as a whole. Through historical and statistical facts combined with "you-are-there" case studies, this set will help readers understand crime, why and how laws are made and enforced, and the key social and political issues connected to criminal justice.
