Safety and Security of Citizens and Society

The news bombards us with stories about dangerous sexual predators, food scandals and astonishing crimes. At NTU, we’re taking action. Our research reveals how we can make society safer, improve the criminal justice system and confront challenges head on.

We are widely recognised for our outstanding research in public safety and security. In 2015, we were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education for our research in three areas:

  • x-ray based security scanners
  • food safety
  • food authenticity

Our researchers are recognised for innovative projects in areas as diverse as rehabilitating sex offenders, improving driving safety, and combating food fraud.
