According to a theory there is a way to differentiate the brain of someone who has never committed a crime from that of a criminal. An MRI or a CT scan can guide a jury in a criminal trial to a conclusion of brain exculpability and dysfunction, even if the scientific links between a specific criminal behaviour and a particular brain defect do not exist (Psychiatrist Services; 2009). In this way knowing criminal theories makes it easier for the law enforcement professionals to find out and punish the culprit. MAJOR CHALLANGES According to the author the major challenges that are being faced by the law enforcement professionals are Controlling aggressive public protests Cyber crimes Urban Terrorism These are the most common challenges that the law enforcement agencies are facing. In this era of emerging technologies, cyber crimes are on its peak and troubling the agencies a lot. Now a day a common way of registering protests is rallies. It has become a headache for the professionals to control these protests to maintain harmony. And talking of terrorism, it is a major threat to the humanity these days. Understanding of criminology will not get the law enforcement professionals to know the terrorist minds. It is lot more difficult for them to combat that. Moreover urban terrorism it is hard to completely prevent these as urban terrorism has its roots spread worldwide. Our system many unavoidable loop holes through which these terror causing elements enter to do a massacre like that of 9/11 (Critical Issues Study group; 2001). CONCLUSION From the above discussion it is clear that for a crime free and just society law enforcement and professionals to enforce these laws are responsible. Law enforcement professionals strive hard on the principles of equality, solidarity and human rights to create a crime free society that is safe for the citizens of the country. They understand criminology to improve their performance in finding and punishing criminals. They face challenges but they work hard to overcome these obstacles to give us more peaceful and just society to live in.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
