    CRIMINOLOGY
    Criminology is the study of crime, those who commit crimes, and punishments for crime.

    The State Commission on Criminal Sentencing Policy oversees sentencing guidelines and policy.

    Within the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, the Criminal Justice Information System provides records and fingerprint identification of people who are arrested and convicted in Maryland. Victims of crime may file claims with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, a unit of the Governor's Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services.

    International Relations is the study of relationships among countries.

    The Maryland Sister States Program of the Secretary of State establishes relationships between Maryland and states in other countries to promote business, education, and culture.

    The Governor's Subcabinet for International Affairs develops strategies for pursuing priorities in other countries and also oversees protocol and coordinates the international activities of agencies.
