conference

The UCL Department of Security and Crime Science (alongside the Jill Dando Institute) run a series of conferences which are open to all and include the International Crime and Intelligence Analysis Conference, the International Crime Science Conference and the National Environmental Crime Conference. The International Crime and Intelligence Analysis Conference replaces the National Crime Mapping Conference that was held from 2002 - 2010.

These conferences aim to showcase the latest research and practice, bringing together practitioners, academics and policy-makers to discuss how scientific research can be translated into real-world impact, and to illustrate examples of practice.

Our open evenings are an excellent opportunity to meet some of the course tutors and ask questions. We will be able to discuss in detail the content and logistics of our courses, as well as how the course fits into your future career plans. Usually our open evenings include current or former students from the course or a speaker from our group of course advisors which include the Met Police, National Police Improvement Agency, the Serious Organised Crime Agency, MoD, MI5, MI6 and British Transport Police.
