Students of Criminology have often been cautioned that careerwise they are facing a dead-end with little prospects of job opportunities. In a similar vein, Criminology as a subject has been regarded by some as mainly theoretical in nature with limited practical application. The latter accusation has been proved groundless as contemporary textbooks and updated syllabi indicate practical examples and constructive outcomes.
