2. What is crime? crime. Why is this a problem you might well ask? The answer is worth exploring in some detail for not only will it improve our understanding of the subject matter of criminology, it will make us ask the important question: what is the point of criminology ?

6. Understanding the crime drop indicated, assessing crime trends is fraught with difficulties, one very careful review of evidence nevertheless concluded that ‘it is reasonable to refer to a general crime drop in Europe’. So, the trend being discussed is not one that appears to have been confined to particular cities or particular countries. Nor is it a short-term blip, but has been sustained over a significant period of time, even during periods of great economic turbulence. So how might it be explained?

2. Between the crime and the court After the commission of the crime and prior to the accused entering a plea, the case is in the hands of the police and the prosecution branches of criminal justice. Most countries operate a professional and independent prosecution service—known as the Crown Prosecution Service in England and Wales. Maintaining a separate prosecution service permits some distance and independence from the professionals gathering evidence, namely the police.

Months passed after I had reported the crime to the police, I eventually went to give evidence at the trial of the man accused of the burglary. In fact, I went to court twice, only to be sent home on both occasions, having been told that the matter had been ‘put over’—delayed for some reason that was never explained to me.
