Welcome to the Department of Security and Crime Science
The Department of Security and Crime Science is the first university department in the world devoted specifically to reducing crime and other risks to personal and national security. It does this through teaching, research, public policy analysis and by the dissemination of evidence-based information on crime reduction and security enhancement.
Our mission is to change policy and practice in the areas of crime and security. The Department plays a pivotal role in bringing together politicians, scientists, designers and front-line practitioners to examine patterns in crime and security threats, and to find practical methods to disrupt these patterns.
