The challenge of what to do about crime is universal. Every society must decide what are unacceptable behaviours, and the best ways of dealing with them.
Illegal guns, illicit drugs, cybercrime, fraud, organised crime, youth gangs, terrorism and corruption count among the key crime issues we face today. Understanding the drivers behind these issues is fundamental to working out the best ways of responding to them.
More policing and more criminal laws may be required in some instances. However, other options may exist which need to be explored.
The Centre for Crime Policy and Research (CCPR) is a dedicated multidisciplinary team of researchers at the forefront of investigating many different areas of criminal activity. The team aims to offer important research and policy advice, specialist training and to build global collaborations.
Our work is based at Flinders University in Adelaide but extends around the world with ground breaking research for local and international communities, including government, non-government, private sector organisations and the media.
