Abstract Research methods are procedures used for gathering information. The information observed is individual or aggregate data on a phenomenon. Traditionally, there are wide ranges of research methods in criminal justice. The most commonly used are survey methods and data analysis. According to Kleck et al; (2006) “survey research is the dominant method of collecting information followed by use of archived data.’’ Furthermore, the most important sources of crime information in U.S criminal justice system are the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) and the BJS’ National Crime Victimization Survey.
After someone commits a crime, multitudes of people show up to the crime scene. The Police, Detectives, Marshalls, sometimes even the Fire Department and Ambulances depending on the crime.

People in the military are fingerprinted, and it is also required for many other occupations and organizations. When it comes time to match a fingerprint with an individual, it is quite easy due to the wide library of fingerprints the FBI maintains. This library contains the fingerprints of “more than 10%” of the U.S. population. For smaller cases, law enforcement are given access to this library directly from a police station ("Forensic Science" [Gale] 18). Fingerprints are a significant form of forensic evidence because they define an individual.
Evidence found at the place of the crime can give investigators clues to who committed the crime. For example, investigators can find footprints, fingerprints, or even the murder weapon. In fact, a hatchet was found on property, which detectives believe is the murder weapon(Allard,2013). This is important because the hatchet gives clues to who committed the crimes.
According to Andrews and Bonta (2010) the psychology of criminal conduct ( PCC) can be defined as an approach to scientifically understand the criminal behavior of individuals through a systematic approach. Additionally, the psychology of criminal conduct is considered to be interdisciplinary, and considers all aspects of science that will assist in the further comprehension of an individuals criminal behavior, and the causes of criminal behavior (Andrews and Bonta , 2010). Andrews and Bonta ( 2010) stated that the psychology of criminal conduct can be considered a subfield of criminology and psychology due to common beliefs and common interests with both disciplines.

Currently, the population of people with Chinese descent in America reaches to 1.2%, which accounts to an estimated 3.8 million people. This all started with the Gold Rush, which let two completely opposite cultures that had never interacted before encounter their differences. The religious and cultural exchanges between the American and Chinese societies occurred with many difficulties of acceptance and tolerance, resulting in the diverse American society of present day. After differences between the two cultures were overcome, the Gold Rush opened the doors of exploration for many generations of not only Chinese immigrants, but all Asian ethnicities to follow. Many immigrants would later follow in their footsteps to find what America has to offer them.

It is still used to trace DNA of any suspects in crime scenes. Because this method is so accurate, most detectives use this method of tracking DNA.

Criminologist is a profession that works to understand what drives the criminal into committing the crime and the effect of the crime committed. The main responsibility of a criminologist will be to investigate all aspects of a crime and find alternatives to avert the criminal behavior and reduce backsliding (Roufa, 2015). When a crime is committed, the criminologist will investigate all aspects of the crime such as what was the drives, why they commit the crime and why they choose that certain way to commit the crime and what did they get from it.
