It's nothing to do with investigating crimes directly - I don't know exactly what you mean by "why it happened" so I'm not sure whether it would apply to that or not.

Other than google and wikipedia being free, in short criminology is a social science that looks into the causes of crime, considering the social structures which give rise to it as well as behavioural elements sometimes. In more applied contexts it may also then use this underlying theory to plan ways to prevent or manage crime and/or deal with the consequences.
