In many countries crime is increasing. What are the main reasons for this? What can be done to improve the situation? Support your position with relevant examples and include your own experience. (250 word)

Nowadays, crime is expanding in lot of countries all over the world. I think that the main reason is the unemployment growing, while the cost of living is rising. People committee a crime for their living, but I believe that, this is not a good reason for all the time. Much people don’t work, because they don’t want to work, just sit home and wait for the monthly support. To decrease the crime, the government should manage the level of unemployment, control the unemployment benefits and reduce the crime.

First of all, increasing the number of workplaces by building new factories and other commercial facilities is a good way to rising the people well-being and the result will be the drop of the crime. However, new job opportunities need strong, growing economy, where people find jobs and they don’t afraid to lose it. The lack of the strong economy is one of the main reason for crime.

In the other hand, the government has to convince the people that working is more beneficial than sitting home and stealing from the neighborhood by give them less supports and stricter punishment for crime. In my experience, many families in the countryside don’t grow any crops such as vegetables and fruit, in spite of most of them has garden and time for that and they get seeds for free, too. They rather steal it from another garden, what is easier and usually they don’t caught by the police. This adverse behavior has to punished and prevent by the authorities.

All things considered, the strong economy is one of the key for the lower crime rate, but the weak authority is also very important. Develop a country’s economy is a very hard and long procedure, and needed international support.

Topic

In many cities crime is increasing. Why does this happen? What can governments do to help reduce crime levels?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge and experience.

Write at least 250 words.

Sample essay

There has been a dramatic increase in criminal activities in urban areas. One only has to read the newspapers or watch television channels to get inundated with stories about crimes. Several factors are responsible for this development. I will discuss them in this essay.

The cost of living has increased immensely in recent times. A large number of people are not even able to put food on the table. When they fail to feed their family, they may get involved in offenses such as shop lifting and robbery. There has also been an increase in the number of people who migrate to urban areas for employment and a better lifestyle. Unfortunately, many of them fail to find jobs and eventually turn to crime to make a living.

Teenagers are often involved in criminal activities. They are influenced by movies and the programs shown on television. In addition, the internet has plenty of resources that encourage people to commit crimes.

The government can play an important role in reducing the crime rate. To start with, the number of policemen patrolling the streets should be increased. The police should also monitor the activities of young students who drop out of school. Parents too need to keep a tab on their children. Finally, the rehabilitation programs in prisons should teach prisoners personal and social skills along with vocational training in order to make them better citizens.

In conclusion, although a number of factors can be responsible for increasing the crime rate, the government can help to control the situation.
