The approach to crime which is distinctively sociological assumes that the criminal acquires his interest, ability, and means of self-justification in crime through his relationship to others. To commit a crime is actions in which the law set by the government is broken by people in society “Crime is said to be activities that break the law and are subject to official punishment” (Holborn and haralambos, 2008). The crime rate in 1961 was fifteen thousand, 1971 thirty eight thousand, 1981 eighty nine thousand and finally in 1991 it was ninety five thousand, as you can see the crime rate is slightly rising every ten years. Durkheim tells us that all societies suffer with crime. “Deviance is a normal and necessary part of any society” (Durkheim).
“Law enforcement agencies have gathered intelligence on violent street group networks, and consequences are delivered to the street groups that continue to engage in violence. Those offenders seeking a more productive lifestyle are provided streamlined social services, training, education, and employment opportunities. The community and law enforcement are working as partners and as a result, strengthening their relationship. Since 1998, homicides steadily increased, reaching a modern-day high of 89 homicides in 2006, with an average of 73.3 homicides per year from 2001 to 2006.”(Cincinnati Initiative, 2007) When you are taking a look at CIRV compared to the Boston Operation Cease fire, there are a lot of similarities. Some of which include using Boston’s “Late night” program along with using the services of outreach workers.

Task 1-Analysis Gun Crime Statistics for Newham East London I have selected statistics on gun crime in Newham East London from the official Metropolitan Police statistics, as the Borough of Newham has one of the highest recorded gun crime incident hot spots in London from September 2008 to September 2010 From the 12 months leading up to September 2009 there were 127 recorded incidents of guns being used this works out as an average of 10 incidents being reported a month. From 12 months leading up to September 2010 there were 200 recorded incidents of guns being used this works out as an average of 16 incidents being reported a month. In total this works out to be an increase of 57% from the previous year, this is a very significant increase in gun crime and must be addressed as if these statistics were to continue like this over the following years gun crime would be completely out of control. To draw further information from these statistics it would be very helpful to know such things as the size of the population of the Borough of Newham compared to the other Boroughs of London as this would give a better indication of the overall problem of gun crime in this area, also if there has been tensions between ethnic minorities there due to immigration of immigrants and also if the area is socially deprived and has a high unemployment rate and high levels of substance misuse leading to high levels of crime. Another problem could be gang related violence that has led to this increase in violence that would also have an effect on Newham’s neighbouring boroughs.
Government agencies use these reports to document crime and do further research on crime in the nation. After a few years of reporting with the first program created, the UCR or Uniform Crime Reporting Program, another program had evolved from that having the FBI designated to coordinate the latest program, NIBRS or the Nation Incident Based Reporting System. With the UCR you could not differentiate between misdemeanor and felony crimes, so the NIBRS was created to gather more in depth and detailed crime data. The NIBRS collects detailed data on every single crime occurrence. Along with those programs came the NCVS or National Crime Victimization Survey, this survey is a self-reporting survey which victims report their own incidents.
“Last year, 15,890 Americans became victims of violent crime each day” (Brinkerhoff). Property crimes are the most committed crimes in the U.S. (Crime). I am shocked how many crimes are committed daily in the U.S. What causes people to commit criminal behavior? Are they born to be aggressive? Are criminals made from their environment?
