Security and Crime Science (F52)
The UCL Department of Security and Crime Science is the teaching arm of the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science (the JDI). Through its undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programmes, the Department is dedicated to equipping current and future professionals working in the crime and security field with the knowledge and skills they will need meet the challenges of 21st century.
With the rapid advances in technologies and the growth of international terrorism, the kinds of crime and security problems we face today are very different from those of twenty years ago and they continue to change. Our teaching programmes are based around the need to develop sophisticated analytical techniques and evidence based strategies to understand, detect and counter crime and security vulnerabilities.

F52 Management Skills For Police Leaders
This five-day CPD course for police personnel will help equip you with the management skills required to be a leader within a modern police force.
The course draws on management lessons from the private and public sector and applies them to the modern policing environment.
It also draws on examples from the voluntary sector, which is particularly relevant given the increasing reliance of the UK police on volunteers, e.g. special constables, citizen patrols and neighbourhood watch coordinators.
The course has been developed by the Institute for Global City Policing, an independent centre based at UCL's Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science.
F52 14th International Crime Science Conference 2023
The theme of this year’s conference is "Organised crime: the present and the future”.
Organised crime is evolving. A problem that has long cut across geographical and cultural boundaries has now moved into the online/digital landscape, creating a new front for law enforcement. At the same time, criminal organisations continue to cause great harm by exploiting traditional business models and the intersections between different crimes, such as corruption and human trafficking or economic crime and terrorist financing.
What are the key challenges of the day? How are those challenges evolving? What might organised crime look like ten, twenty years from now?
This conference will showcase international research into this complex phenomena, advancing the current state of our understanding. We will look at current responses, as well as anticipate future crimes and their mitigation. The event will cover a broad range of crimes, geographies, technologies, disciplines and methods.
The conference will bring together leading practitioners, policy-makers, technologists and academics.
The full day programme includes lunch and ends with an evening drinks reception.
The event is co-sponsored by the Dawes Centre for Future Crime at UCL, and the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council.
