CCJ 552 Crime, Space and Time

Crime is a rare event, concentrating in both space, and time. In Crime, Space and Time, we will introduce, critically examine, and apply the criminological theories that help us to understand why crimes concentrate where and when they do. Designed for the beginning crime analyst, this course provides students with the theoretical foundations of spatial-temporal criminology needed in order to develop practical and applied skills within the field. Students will learn about the interconnections between spatial-temporal theories of crime, and applied crime analysis.
