Criminology is the study of crime and deviant behavior. We must understand that crime is committed by people who are around us in our society or communities that we all live in, the relevant question here is, why should one human being harm another human being or why should one human being do evil against another human being. There is a complete psychological angle to criminality, let put it in context that everybody is capable of committing crime, why are others committing crime and others are not committing crime. Let me make it clear that our individual upbringing is a contributing factor to our chosen behavior. In the angle of authoritative parenting: parents demonstrate a responsiveness to the child’s needs, demandingness, monitoring of child’s behavior, providing clear standards of conduct, and discipline based on reasoning rather than based on power or withdrawal of love. Authoritative parents provide home environment rich with strict behavior supervision with high degree of emotional support. The problems on this earth mostly comes from the training from home, anytime the home is better, the nation is also better. Governments investments towards the home is one of the panacea for building a peaceful nation.One of the most dominant ideas under the umbrella of education’s impact on crime is the belief that a reduction in crime can most often be achieved by increased crime prevention and that the most effective form of crime prevention is achieved through education. There is a discussion that the level of individual education is a contributing factor to that persons violent behavior. Governments all over the world must ensure that they put in appropriate measures to prevent crime such as Putting CCTV cameras and security sensors across the whole nation, employing more security personnel such as police etc to ensure that law and order is maintained. Carefully handling of social issues is very important example giving every child free and quality education.
