What is Criminology?

Criminology is a science that studies criminal behavior, their authors and their victims. Criminology uses the contribution of other disciplines, such as criminal law, sociology, psychology, forensic medicine, statistics. The approach to the study of crime can be microscopic or macroscopic: in the first case we try to understand the genesis of crime, evaluating the personality of the individual criminal, his tendency to commit crimes and his socialization defects. In the second case, we try to understand the general tendencies of crime, with the aim of contributing to the drafting of law enforcement policies.

What are the differences between criminology and criminalistics?

If criminology is the science that studies criminal behavior, their authors and their victims, criminalistics makes use of scientific and technological methods for investigative activities aimed at discovering the author of a crime through the crime scene analysis.

The two terms are often used improperly by confusing two skills – and therefore two professions – distinct and separate: Criminalistic, Criminology (criminologist).
