"Criminology is the body of knowledge regarding crime as a social phenomenon. It includes within its scope the process of making laws, of breaking laws, and of reacting towards the breaking of laws….The objective of criminology is the development of a body of general and verified principles and of other types of knowledge regarding this process of law, crime and treatment or prevention". (Sutherland, 1934)
