CJS 220 Crime and the City 3.0 Credits

This course reviews the nature of crime and disorder in cities from the urban industrial revolution through the so-called "Crime Drop" of the early 2000s. The course opens with an overview of urbanization, contrasting the “best” with the “worst” aspects of the industrial revolution on human life. It then examines urban drug markets, violence, and policing before moving into a discussion of the crime "peak" of 1992. The course then follows the ensuing crime drop, examining demographic, economic, and cultural factors that may explain the national crime decline. The course then focuses on violence as a public health issue and on how crime, incarceration, health, housing, and education are all tied to urban crime policy.
