From stealing identities, to domestic abuse, to serial murder, crime and victimization continue to remain an unfortunate staple of society. With the rapid expansion and availability of technology, as well as the inability to effectively monitor and regulate such emerging tools as the deep web, criminals have continually advanced and altered their methods to avoid detection and locate new victims. As officials work to predict and prevent crimes, as well as apprehend offenders, they will need to devise new tools and strategies to preserve the safety of society and ensure proper justice is served.

The Advances in Criminology, Victimology, Serial Violence, and the Deep Web (ACVSVDW) Book Series explores emerging research behind crime motivation, new methods and the utilization of technology for committing illegal acts, criminal justice and reform strategies, and the effects of crime on society and its victims. The publications contained within this series are valuable resources for government officials, law enforcement officers, corrections officers, prison management, criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, forensic scientists, computer engineers, security specialists, IT consultants, academicians, researchers, and students seeking current research on international crime.
