Job Description for Criminologist

A criminologist is a specialized analyst or scientist who is particularly interested in learning about what causes criminal behavior in society. Typically, these persons work for large law enforcement entities, government agencies, or social psychology labs at universities or similar institutions. The criminologist is an investigator of sorts, just not in individual crimes. Rather, he or she seeks to discover how and why criminals behave the way they do in an effort to aid police in their own investigations. This person must also assist the government by suggesting approaches that may prevent lawless actions.
