Over the span of a few decades, the crime rate has reached a horrendous high. This condition is prevalent not only in India but, in several parts of the world. The situation has become dire. There are several citizens who are petrified to step out of their homes. This is because the terror of crime has enveloped them. Many of us bear a strong desire of bringing in changes. They feel the need of subsuming new steps. On the contrary, some people reckon that there is nothing one can do. They have given up on the hope of transformation.
There are various factors which give birth to a criminal's mind. Family plays a crucial role here. If a person does not receive adequate nourishment in his childhood, problems will definitely come his way. The mushrooming level of poverty plays a significant part in this process as well. Poor people often descend to illegal ways to fulfill their needs. This practice engulfs children as well.
The Government can take multiple measures to perish criminal activities. For instance, it can put up more police forces on duty in areas prone to higher crime rates; they can consider turning to increased technological help, and they can enforce stricter laws and punishing methods. However, we as people can bring in changes too.
