Crime, policing, security and justice

Crime, policing, security and justice

The Crime, Policing, Security and Justice group at RegNet works on transformations in crime, crime prevention and security policies. We aim to bring about evidence-based reform in the practices of policing and security to enhance Australia's social, economic and cultural wellbeing.

Our work on crime, policing, security and justice is based on our paradigm-changing scholarship in criminology, which includes some of the most cited publications in Australian social science, and in criminology worldwide. We have pioneered a regulatory approach applied to street crimes and policing and opened up new fields like crime in cyberspace, as well as environmental and financial crime, corruption and rule of law in peace building. Those contributions substantially informed the research agenda of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS) - 2008-2014- in which RegNet was a key research node. Regulatory scholars affiliated with other disciplines, including law, economics, sociology, political science and computer science have made exciting contributions to a distinctive interdisciplinarity in RegNet’s work on crime, policing, security and justice.
