Data collection methodologies in criminology follow same patterns wth any social research since criminology deals with people. The main methods include face to face surveys through direct or phone administered questionnaires. Data collection can also involve case studies or review of crimes reported and recorded in daily occurrence books. Data collection using these methods takes qualitative and quantitative approaches. Criminal justice can use data collected through these methodologies to put in place mechanisms that really fight crime or improve enforcement of law and order.
