Crime and Justice: Home


Visit with President Kennedy, J.Edgar Hoover, Robert F. Kennedy at the Oval Office in the White House.Whether local, national, or international, everyone's life has been touched by crime, to some degree. Similarly, criminal justice research can touch upon a variety of fields, particularly including government information and the law. Statistics, too, are a key element of this area of study.

For further reading in the field of crime and justice, see the Warren Commission report (on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy), the FBI's report on Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, and the FBI Vault's 22-part record series on J. Edgar Hoover.
