CRJ 236 Victimology

3 hours 

This course focuses on the victims rather than the offenders: why they have been "rediscovered" recently; why they often do not report crimes to the police; how some victims might share responsibility for the crimes with the offenders; how they can be repaid for their losses through offender restitution and government compensation; and what new services are available to help victims prevent crimes and resist attacks.
