Theory is a method to organize known facts into an easy-to-understand and apply format. Each theory provides its own explanation of why crime occurs. However, theories can be contradictory of one another when explaining why crime occurs. So how can be sure we using the best theory to explain the crime or base public policy on?

 

Your task for this assignment is to create evaluation criteria that can be used to assess theories objectively. Be sure to include at least the following information in your evaluation criteria.
