Goals edit

Scope edit

Crime edit

This WikiProject focuses on criminology and a wide range of crime-related topics, verifying notability of articles, expanding stub-class crime related articles and writing specific contributions to requested crime articles.

Crime and criminology related subjects can range from specific areas, geographical locations, and historical periods as well as overlap with other subjects such as WikiProject Law and Law Enforcement.

The scope of crime and criminology includes people, events, and related information on:

Criminal biographies edit

In Wikipedia, the biography page of a criminal often uses the same style and form of other regular biographies. However, due to the sensitiveness and uniqueness of their biography, something different needs to be done. Additionally, criminal biographies or sections in articles about the perpetrators of crimes may face unique BLP issues.

Biographies and other subjects generally follow standard Wikipedia Manual of Style formatting; however, there are a few exceptions, such as specialized formats established of criminal organizations (as seen in Bufalino crime family originally established by User:ExplorerCDT).

Parentage edit

  2. Link all possible information such as locations, charges, penalties, etc. Do not link dates, years or use flag icons in the infobox.
