Crime policy and the science of correcting criminal behavior is very complicated. This volume includes a collection of essays that analyze the efficacy of current sex offender policies. A question-and-response format prompts readers to examine complex topics from multiple viewpoints. Students are encouraged to see the validity of divergent opinions, so that they may understand issues inclusively. Essay topics include what the best defense is against sexual predators, whether treatment is effective, whether GPS tracking promotes panic, and whether the state of limitations should be reformed to bring justice to perpetrators.
