Sociology of crime, or criminology, is the science that studies the nature, extent, causes and control of criminal behavior on both the individual and societal level. Crime, a term used for any act that violates written criminal law, is a form of deviance. For modern sociology the core problem of police has been, and continues to be, the extrication of the concept police from the forms and institutions in which it has been realized and the symbols and concealments in which it has been wrapped. Doing so is essential to the interpretive understanding of the idea of police and is prerequisite to mature answers to the question of what policing means.
