The collection is a general collection, evenly split between criminology and criminal justice administration. Historic strengths sustained today include juvenile delinquency; prisoner reformation, reclamation, and social work; sentencing. Recently-added strengths include victimology; policing best practices; and geographic analysis of crime.
