The paper intends to reflect criminology in the fast-changing world of the present time. As the control in many developing societies is not so easy, many crimes of different qualities and size appear in such societies. Criminology as the core science is involved with how crimes emerge, their roots and the way to control and decrease its frequency. In modern times, various socio-economic classes of people commit different crimes. Increasing urbanization largely contributes to the emergence of crimes, social norms and laws. The transfer of rural poverty to urban areas eventually contributes to the emergence of increasing crimes in the new areas. Rate of crimes has almost doubled in rich countries between 1968 and 1980. It is even worse in developing countries where data is not available.
