Population and its various components have largely been studied by geographers and other social scientists. But the study of crime as a social component of population has almost remained a neglected spectrum of study particularly by geographers. Thus, this is obvious dearth of literature especially on spatial dimension of crimes dealt by geographers. There are so many problems, some of the quite baffling being faced by the human society today. Crimes stand in the forefront among these problems. The crime is not a new introduction to social evils of the society, but as a matter of fact, crime and criminality have co-existed with mankind since then the dawn of human civilization. Newer in the history of mankind, society has been able to eliminate crime fully and finally.

The seriousness of the social problem hardly needs to be over emphasized. The public suffers and looses from crime either directly or indirectly. The study of devastating effect on the part of the doer committing the offence and the person having being fallen prey to it or the society as a whole cannot be ignored. It blocks the path of all-round regional development of an area.

The problem of crime is a gigantic issue for the mankind. In India, it has recently reached so much clamorous proportion that our mass media is agog with severe description of heinous and culpable murders, sensational robberies and gangster acuities, police-politician nexus in corruption, monstrous embezzlement of public finance by reputed government officers. The public is aware of the increasing magnitude of incidence of crime and is very much concerned about it. Even the man in the street believes that crime situation in India is becoming more chaotic and rising criminality is a part of almost complete breakdown of law and order situation... No Government policy for crime control or corrective method has proved very effective in the reduction of crime and the ultimate solution or alleviation of this problem must rest in the hands of the general citizen.

Crime has always been an integral part of our civilization. Crime and criminality have coexisted with mankind. Over the centuries, thousands of years since the dawn of human civilization concerned and capable people have sought the causes and cures of crime. Various theories have been put forward, yet there is no single synthesized approach towards crime correction.
