Te Puna Haumaru
The New Zealand Institute for Security and Crime Science (NZISCS) was established at the University of Waikato in 2017. The University is the primary research partner for the New Zealand Police. Our research aims to reduce crime and increase security through multi-disciplinary, evidence-based research.
The NZISCS also leads the Master of Security and Crime Science graduate programme, which is the first programme of its kind in New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region.
