Toward Understanding the Biology of Crime in Trinidad and Tobago

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.297
Pages: 
655–7
Synopsis: 
Crime has a distinct biological component; addressing this aspect could lead toward clinical interventions that could mitigate the incidence of crime within the population.

 ABSTRACT

Serious crime is a scourge within Trinidad and Tobago’s borders and seems to be escalating yearly with no resolution in sight. It is commonplace for governments to view/implement policies targeting crime based on sociological and psychological paradigms. What is most often overlooked, however, is that crime has unique biological underpinnings, which, if characterized, could lead toward clinical interventions that could mitigate its incidence within the population.
