If you don't mind me asking is this the first criminology course you have done?

yes that is the part I'm struggling with too and also assignment 2 is similar question to 1 and is 500 so I'm not sure wether to write about the 1st crime I choose aswell and also the material for assignment one doesn't really make sense much I'm sooo confused at the moment

Hi, im not doing the criminology course but ive found with my course you can often find the books recommended to you in the library, it will save you a lot of money if you can get them from the library...

My course arrived today. Really impressed with the speed. Had a brief look at the question and am not sure I can write 1000 words. How are you getting on?

Im doing drug crime as there have been a lot of raids recently. I refered to the local police website. I was thinking about changing it to assault but now I've started drug crime. Have you explain how you decided your crime? I've put about the theories I have used. Not sure if that is right. I can't work out how i can get 20 points for this assignment. I set myself a goal to complete the assignment this weekend, don't think I will meet that goal now,

I had a brief look, I was tempted to move on to unit 2 but dont think they would like that it's going to be easier than doing 1000 words. The plan is I'm going to work on the course at weekend just was eager to get going and had booked long weekend off work. I can't see how just answering that question how I can reach 1000 words. I'm going to try again tomorrow.

Hi. Well I'm currently working for the probation service in admin. I would like to eventually progress to being an officer and this course would help. Have or do you work in any o the crimal justice agencies? I love my job but would just like to do more. What made you choose criminology? I'm going to have another go of the assignment this afternoon. I've got tomorrow off work so if I'm still stuck I'm also going to call them,
