Career as a Criminologist
Criminologists study and analyse crime and criminal behaviour. They analyse various sociological, psychological, economic, and other reasons behind criminal activities. They analyse the background of criminals to understand what might have led them to commit the crime. They interact with and interview criminals. They offer counseling and advice to criminals. Criminologists often plan various programs to modify criminal behaviour to help criminals go back to mainstream life. Criminologists contribute a lot to police forces and Government administration to reduce crime rates in a locality, region, or in a community.
