Criminological Theory

Criminological Theory



Recently, a new tax on gun and ammunition sales was approved in the city of Tacoma. While its

implementation was delayed because of COVID-19, the tax should go into effect next year.

When it is implemented, the tax will generate money to fund youth crime prevention efforts1.

The Mayor’s office is seeking research assistance to determine how the money should be spent

to better address youth crime in the city. Your job is to write a memo to the Mayor’s office

outlining an initiative that is based on one or two of the theories in this course. Tell her office

all that you can about this theory (or theories) and explain for her two specific policy changes

that ought to be made that align with this theory (or theories). Describe these policy changes in

detail and show how they are connected to the theory (or theories) that you chose to base your

initiative on.

If you choose to talk about two theories, please be sure to discuss how these perspectives –and

the policy changes that they inspire—compare and contrast with one another.

In your memo to the Mayor, please make the case to her office that this initiative will result in a

response to youth crime that is more effective and more just (whatever ‘effective’ and ‘just’

may mean to you)

Example of theories of crime you can use in your paper

( Labeling theory, Self-Control, Classic Strain, Differential Association, Code of the Street, General Strain, Social Disorganization, Defiance Theory)
