Institute for Security & Crime Science

Security and Crime Science is an emerging field of study that aims to develop a scientific approach to crime prevention and utilisation of police resources. The Institute incorporates four interlinked components; theories in crime science, modelling and analysis of data on crime and security issues, the use of computer science to assist evidence-based police work, and research in psychology relevant to criminal behaviour and police processes. The Institute works in conjunction with the Wellington-based Centre for Evidence Based Policing, a joint University of Waikato and New Zealand Police initiative.
