Motor-Vehicle Theft
Occupational and Organizational Crime
Public-Order Crimes The Second Edition updates all national data to develop current profiles of each crime based on characteristics of the offender, the victim, and the situational context.
Comparisons within and between crime profiles illustrate similarities and differences in criminal behavior. New examples illustrate both change and stability in the types of situations in which particular crimes occur.

Each chapter is organized in the same format - focusing on the particular definitions of the crimes, trends in their frequency of occurrence, the offender profile, the victim profile, situational elements and circumstances, particular subsets of crime syndromes, crime prevention, and intervention strategies. Easy-to-read tables and charts summarize major trends.

Crime Profiles is suitable as a supplement for a variety of courses in criminology, criminal justice, and sociology. ...show less
