Event Details

Dr Spencer Chainey, Principle Research Associate for the Jill Dando Institute (JDI) of Security and Crime Science at UCL, will be giving a presentation at COLFUTURO, Bogotá.

The JDI is one of the leading academic departments in the world for research and teaching on crime and security science, and for helping to tackle real-world problems.  Research at the JDI is concentrated on using evidence-based ways to cut crime, drawing upon UCL's vast experience in related disciplines, including architecture, economics, engineering, geography, medicine, psychology, statistics and town planning.

Dr Chainey’s presentation will cover the following topics:

  • About UCL- London’s Global University
  • Introduction to The Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science
  • What is security and crime science and why is it important for helping to improve policing and citizen security
  • MSc programmes within Security and Crime Science and examples of student research dissertations
  • PhD programmes within Security and Crime Science and examples of student research
  • Examples of the Centre’s work with police and ministries of security
  • Funding opportunities
  • How to apply to UCL
  • Question and answer session

Dr Chainey has recently set up a new JDI Latin America and Caribbean Unit which specifically supports research on crime and citizen security, and the professional development of policing in the Latin America and Caribbean region. More information can be found here.
