Likewise, bike theft is a huge problem for many metropolitan cities in the U.S.. Literature to support this claim is the 2015 Crime Prevention Program in Portland, Oregon. “Thousands of bicycles are stolen in the City of Portland each year… Places with high concentrations of parked bicycles such as college campuses are especially vulnerable to theft” (Office of Neighborhood Involvement Crime Prevention Program, Bicycle Theft Prevention, 2015). This article also identifies many preventative techniques to make a bike harder to steal; for example, “Proactively register your bike and include its serial number and photos with the bike registration services bikeindex.org and project529.com” (2015). Moving on, it is imperative to attack any problem

In 1937, Meridian Community College (MCC) was founded as a part of Meridian High School in the local school system. In 1965, the College also formerly known as Meridian Junior College moved from its original location to its present location. In 1970, the College merged with the historically T.J. Harris Junior College according to a federal court order to the Meridian Municipal Separate School System. There were more than 400 students and faculty joined the MJC campus. In 1980, Meridian Junior College established its own district and Board of Trustees. In 1987, the College officially changed its name to Meridian Community College to reflect its mission and the diversity it provides to a growing community (http://www.meridiancc.edu/Assets/1pdfs/catalog/MCC_Catalog_2015-2016_Book.pdf).

Sauk Valley Community College should have a track and field team for several reasons. SVCC use to have a track and field team. Sadly, they dropped it in the nineteen seventies probably because of the expenses. Track and field is a very popular sport that many students might want to take part in middle and high school, or even at college level. Track isn’t a very expensive sport. It is one of the cheapest sports to participate in. Track and field is also very popular sport in colleges in the two hour radius from Sauk Valley Community College. Bringing track and field to Sauk will bring about 40-50 new students each year. Also, this will make Sauk become a better choice of colleges in the area, because of the distance.
Bennett College, with such rich history from various women of color, and such empowerment from the loving sisterhood we have here, how could you not be successful. I believe that I have been given ample resources to be successful because of the sisterhood, support, awesome staff, and the experiences you gain here are unlike any other schools. Yes, it is obvious we don't acquire the finances & all the fancy amenities that the bigger universities like the University of North Carolina at Greensboro or North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University have but Bennett College gives its students something deeper than the surface can see. Something that isn't just in the classroom but something you can take with you everywhere. I have been

Throughout the article, cross-benefit analysis, as well as economic calculations are examined. The annual monetary sum financially lost during the carrying out of crimes by high school dropouts is about $1.1 billion. Some of the costs include the costs of policing, trial, and sentencing. The estimated annual state spending on policing in the state of California is $13.3 billion, with an additional $4.75 billion in spending on the judicial branch and department of justice. A total of $18.05 billion in an attempt to fight both adult and juvenile criminal activity. Consequently, if assumed that juveniles commit
This paper analyzes the case study of Valley Community College (VCC), which is one of the oldest community colleges in the nation. Since its inception in 1910, it has grown and expanded to over 25,000 students, and a faculty of 1,500. The largest student population consists of 38% Latino, followed by Whites, Asian Americans, African Americans, and Native Americans. The College is now operating at maximum capacity and has a waiting list for each location. In order to meet the growing demands of the community, temporary classrooms have been setup in a large portable trailer. Due to the financial pressures of the institution, a new building is currently not an option. In addition, many of the faculty members and administrators are expected to retire, which is affecting faculty and staff workloads as well as tension of program accreditations. These concerns are impacting the entire campus morale.
The crime control model is the “perspective that emphasizes the efficient arrest and conviction of criminal offenders” (Schmalleger, 2015, p. 22). A few of the underlying ideas of this model are keeping public order, preventing future crimes, and controlling unacceptable
As previously stated, the bike program was unsuccessful was because it was not well thought out enough, and allowed for kids of puerile behavior to take advantage of the system. The reason this happened, (according to some criminological theories) could be explained by theories
Situational crime prevention constitutes primary crime prevention measure. This is to say that it is aimed at deterring crime before it occurs. Situational prevention, like other similar primary prevention measures, focuses on subduing crime opportunities instead of the attributes of criminals or even potential criminals. It seeks to curtail opportunities for certain groups of crime by increasing the risks and difficulties associated with them and significantly reducing the rewards. Situational prevention is made up of three key elements: a sound theoretical framework, an authoritative methodology for dealing with specific crimes, and a collection of opportunity-reducing approaches (Felson & Clarke, 1997).
The hypothesis claims that “changes in routine activity patterns can influence crime rates by affecting the convergence in space and time of the three minimal elements of direct-contact predatory violations” and that “the absence of any one of these elements [motivated offenders, suitable targets, and the absence of suitable guardians against a violation] is sufficient to prevent the successful completion of a direct-contact predatory crime.” (1) The authors claim that controls for routine activities, therefore, are essential to maintaining order and keeping the crime rate down. They also note that and understanding of temporal and spatial relationships are key to understanding the changing crime rates. Illegal acts are events that occur in space and time and involve specific persons and/or objects. The spatio-temporal organization of everyday activities is what allows criminals to turn their criminal ideas into reality. Dispersion of activities away from the household has led to a change in the spatio-temporal relationship that increases the opportunity for crime, which in turn increases the crime rate itself.
