Abstract

The papers in this issue are linked under the broad theme of crime, of which several arose from the 20th Annual BILETA Conference in Belfast, April 2005 Technology has, of course, presented new approaches to both preventing and detecting crime—likewise, the counterpart ability to commit crimes is extending domestically and internationally. It is estimated that crime costs the UK tax payer £50 billion per year, with investment in technology consuming a significant portion of the budget. Academic research into crime prevention and detection is increasing and supported by the government via funding council projects such as the EPSRC Projects Against Crime.

Keywords: crime, prevention, detection, BILETA 2005, conference papers
