Crime Scene, DO NOT ENTER – Year 9 Sleuths study Criminology

Year 9s who chose the Criminology elective have been studying the nature of crime in Australia and the different approaches to understanding criminal behaviour. Understanding what makes someone a criminal and criminal profiling can help predict and prevent future crimes. Students covered topics including: the causes of crime, the major methods for measuring crime, crime prevention and the possibilities for rehabilitation. They also tackled tricky topics such as nature vs nurture, the making of a serial killer and what makes a victim and what factors can prevent crime.
