On December 14, 2015 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM (Eastern), the Smart Policing Initiative (SPI) will present the webinar "Criminology 102: Busted Myths in Criminology". This webinar will be presented by Dr. Scott Decker, SPI Subject Matter Expert and Foundation Professor at the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University. The past two decades of research have challenged many conventional assumptions about crime and criminal justice.
A key element of crime reduction is tackling long-term and chronic hot spots and other problems: multiple crimes with common factors whose recurrence can often be predicted. Such long-term problems rarely respond to enforcement and arrests, but must be solved with targeted strategies aimed at removing the opportunity for the crimes to occur.
The American Society of Criminology is an international organization whose members pursue scholarly, scientific, and professional knowledge concerning the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency.
