Situational and environmental criminal prevention approaches to produce social changes in the specific characteristics of the environment that may cause criminal events to occur (AIC 2015:1). In a major research (Tonry & Farrington, 1995), it was found that ‘situational crime prevention is based on the premise that crime is often opportunistic and aims to modify contextual factors to limit the opportunities for offenders to engage in criminal behaviour ‘(as cited in AIC 2015: 2). In March 1988, Beborah Linsley’s case well shows that the evidence. She was ‘stabled to death in an empty train compartment on the Orpington to Victoria line’ (Valentine 1989: 385).

The reconstructive surgery repairs or restores the structure that is damaged7. There are many kinds of prolapse treatment with or without mesh to perform vaginally such as transvaginal mesh, vaginal native tissue colporrhaphy, sacrospinous ligament fixation, iliococcygeus ligament suspension, uterosacral ligament suspension. By a laparoscopic, laparotomy or laparoscopic-assisted robotic approach such as Sacrocolpopexy, Uterosacral ligament suspension27. Due to the association of damage of several compartments, more than one procedure can be performed concomitantly in a patient44. Based on the above information, chambers are categorized into three sites, apical, anterior and posterior.
The “Big 5” personality, also known as OCEAN, is a personality assessment that has been developed and modified over the century by researchers. We will look at how the assessment is accurate in whether criminals and criminal behavior may link to one or a few specific traits, or what types of crime criminals are likely to commit based on the personalit(y/ies) that they have. A personality, defined by the American Psychological Association (APA) is; “ … individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving”. [APA, 2018] Because every person may inhibit a different character, and not everyone is the same person, it can prove to be a challenge in able to know or understand one another.
6. Butterfly Effect: Ex-convict and Society Although butterfly effect is a theory which came from meteorological sciences and by the initial work of American meteorologist Edward N. Lorenz to highlight that small cause may have large effects (Lorenz, 2001). In criminology, this theory can be used to describe the accumulation of abusive childhood experiences, dysfunctional family or social environment which is conducive for the burgeoning of any crime, which escalates into a major event e.g. becoming professional criminal. On the other hand, this theory can also be applied to understand the turning of a first time offender into repeat offender in the absence of any kind of support from the family in terms of emotional and psychological support
It is not uncommon for an individual who has experienced a traumatic event, to feel deep emotions, sometimes during abrupt moments without any noticeable triggers. Some individuals will commence to crying for no reason, or suddenly become apprehensive or exasperated, which often scares, or astounds them. Excruciating trauma and emotions are concurrent, and part of the rejuvenating process is to be open to emotions that come up. The event that took place is not what determines whether an individual has been traumatized; opposed to being exposed to the event that took place. How a given person will react to a particular event is unpredictable.
Basic Premises Two pioneers in the study of criminal behavior have undoubtedly done more than anyone to identify what the criminal’s basic premises are. Doctor Samuel Yochelson, M.D., Ph.D. and Doctor Stanton E. Samenow, Ph.D. (hereinafter often referred to simply as “the Doctors”) spent more than a decade and a half conducting a clinical study into the nature of the criminal personality. What they uncovered is nothing less than a veritable blueprint outlining how criminals generally think. The study began in 1961 when Doctor Yochelson became the director of the Program for the Investigation of Criminal Behavior at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, a massive federal facility in Washington, D.C. that houses the criminally insane.
Deterrence and Recidivism Crime prevention is a key aim of the criminal justice system. Offenders are incarcerated in prisons in a expectation that they will feel punished enough to learn from their mistakes and not commit further crimes, this is called deterrence and is a main goal of prisons today (Daly, 2003). Prisons in their current form are often overcrowded, anxiety inducing, restrictive and have been found to exacerbate the mental health of offenders (Matthews, 2016). In saying this, research by Crank and Brezina (2012) suggests that some offenders find prison ‘easier than being on the street’. Crank and Brezina (2012) conducted a study where they surveyed a large group of inmates and questioned them on their views of being incarcerated.
