Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The relationship between criminology and social policy is ambivalent and marked by controversy. Some criminologists believe that their discipline should be used to help politicians formulate successful policies. Others believe that criminologists should stay out of the political process entirely. Criminologists also disagree with each other about which policies are most effective.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
