Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 1

Rational Choice and Deterrence Theory


 In Chapter 7 of Crime Prevention, Robinson states that “Rational   choice and deterrence theories are two related theories that help understand   why criminal justice – including crime control and crime prevention   activities of police, courts, and corrections – should help us reduce crime   in society” (2012). Answer one of the following questions:

  1. How do these theories help us understand the relationship        between criminals and law enforcement, the courts, corrections, and        society?
  2. What are some of the results we would expect to see if these        theories are correct in assessing criminal activity?
  3. How would the rational choice and deterrence theories change the        policing strategy of your department if you were in a police department        utilizing traditional policing techniques or a department utilizing        community oriented and problem solving techniques?

Your initial post   must be a minimum of 250 words in length. Support your post with examples   from your required reading material and /or other scholarly sources, and   provide in-text citation in APA style.  

  Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Robinson discusses   many theories in Chapters 3 through 7. Select a theory other than rational   choice or deterrence theories, and compare and/or contrast it to the post of   your classmates’ and/or your instructor. Does one of these theories clarify   your understanding of the crime or criminal issue you intend to examine in   your Final Project?
