What We Research

The role of the National Crime Research Centre is to conduct crime research into the trends, root causes, consequences and prevention of common, serious and organized crimes. This is with a view to inform agencies in the criminal justice system to formulate policies geared towards addressing crime.

This is done in three ways namely:

  • In-house research
  • Research requests by other Agencies within the criminal justice system especially Public and Private Institutions under the National Council for Administration of Justice.
  • Research through collaboration and partnerships.
