About JDiBrief

JDiBrief is an online library of one-page briefing notes about crime and security problems, and analytical techniques that can be applied to understand them better. Written by experts in their field for practitioners, policy-makers and researchers, these briefing notes present examples of, and recommendations for, effective practice.

Produced by the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science, the briefing notes are written by staff, associates and students who are knowledgeable about ways to cut crime and increase security.  

The series editor for JDiBrief is Lisa Tompson.  To ensure the highest quality of writing the briefing notes are peer-reviewed by our Editorial Board (more details on the composition of this Board are coming soon).  We invite guest authors to produce briefing notes when new research findings become available on a topic.
