Crime Science is different from criminology in that it shifts the focus on why people commit crimes to a focus on studying crime itself.  Crime science is the study of criminal acts in order to find ways to prevent them.  A key difference between crime science and criminology is a matter of scope:  traditional criminology judges a wide scope a good thing.  Crime Science insists that an explanation of crime be as specific as possible.
