What Is Crime?

Crime is the breaking of set rules or laws or which a governing authority through departments or mechanisms of legal systems, that can enforce a punishment conviction. The specific definition of crime varies on location of the crime, be it local, state or international and at which stage the accused was at in the crime at the time of apprehension; planning, conspiring, disclosing, intent, preparation, if the crime was incomplete or if the entire crime was completed and successful.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of crime is goes un-reported, un-recorded, does not get followed through with or the crime is not able to be proved.

Every act of crime does violate the law but not every violation of the law is constituted a crime. For instance, if there is a breech of business contract or some similar type of civil offense may be considered an 'offense' or 'infraction' but will not be prosecuted but a government institution as a crime. Most societies of modern era generally view a crime a direct offense against the public or established government apposed to civil disputes between private parties.

If a society is unable to provide and maintain a generally peaceful social order, a government may impose a formal and more strict set of rules and laws with equivalent punishment for the crime to maintain social order.

Authorities of law enforcement are then implemented to regulate crime and prevent the breaking of the set laws of the land. Government agencies enforce rules into laws of which the police, citizens, and the judicial system must adhere to enforce and prevent crime. Additionally, this judicial system provides crime remedies and punishments for crime. These punishments can vastly vary depending on the severity of the crime and can include fines, incarceration, capital punishment or permanent incarceration without the possibility of ever re-entering free society.

Many sociologists have studied the relationship between society and crime, how individuals perceive crime and how mass populations perceive crime based both set laws on social norms.

In general, societies typically associate crime to actions that injure a person, the general population or to the state. Significant loss or significant damage to individuals can also be constituted as crime. The intent of people who apply and enforce prosecution and punishment for crime is that of social dominance to maintain what is set as acceptable behavior and actions. For a population to fight against or act against government set crime laws in nonacceptance of the set crime laws is considered anarchy or overthrowing.

Typically general population commits crime, but crime enforcement people may also commit crime. Only people can commit crime, nonpersons such as a dog or snake cannot commit crime.

How To File A Stolen Property Police Report

The first step in any occurrence of theft is to report the incident to the police immediately. This helps you recover the stolen item if it gets confiscated and helps with an insurance claim process on the account an official police report is required to file a claim.

Here are the general steps to file a police report:

  1. Call the non-emergency phone number for the local police station or law enforcement agency where the item was stolen.
  2. Obtain the physical address and go to the police station or law enforcement agency.
  3. Once there, go to the stolen property department if applicable.
  4. While creating a stolen property police report it's important to provide the theft detective or clerk with as many details as possible, especially the item's serial number, any identifying marks or stickers. Also include when, where and how the item was stolen.
  5. Once you have completed the report, be sure to obtain a copy and retain it for follow-up and recovery.

It's important to file a police report for theft, no matter how big, small or valuable the stolen item is, because it helps the police know a thief's (or thieves) M.O. and to control theft by using crime data to increase patrol in areas with a high or rising crime rate. Sometimes an area's theft rate can skyrocket because people don't report theft incidents because the stolen item isn't of high monetary value. This is called petty theft and is how a petty thief can continue stealing because the police are not made aware of their activity.
