Safety is of paramount importance to our society. We want to feel safe and secure, not only in the street and in the workplace, but also at home. The Centre of Expertise for Public Safety and Criminal Justice does research into public safety and is committed to helping resolve complex safety issues.
It comprises 5 research groups, each of which examines these issues from its own perspective, and approaches them from a legal, social/community care and/or administrative/organisational angle. We use the outcomes to enhance the resilience of citizens, professionals, organisations and society as a whole, and to improve training for professionals working in this field.
