About the Journal

The International Police Science Institute seeks to develop academic activities in all areas of Police science. In other words, by conducting theoretical and practical research on the entire criminal justice system, including police administration, criminology and metaphysical law, we aim to contribute to the development of our nation and the international community by building a holistic theoretical foundation that contributes to social public welfare and orderly maintenance.
We will further publish the journal as an activity to achieve this purpose, we will develop a variety of research presentations and lectures, scholars, experts in the field, the symposium to participate in policy-making, the legal structure of crime victims, and counseling and legal counsel related to police activities, and contribute to the construction of the future of Safe International society.
The direction of the International Police Science Council is as follows in accordance with these established objectives and future-oriented goals.

First, the International Institute of potential capacity development through the establishment of a comprehensive system of related academic and practical areas with the keyword of police activities.

Second, it is a world-wide national society where everyone can participate and coexist from police science-related experts to people all over the world.

Third, the world’s leading global Transformation Institute.

In these three ways, we will establish the direction of the Institute and continue to develop specific programs to achieve them.
In the future, we will create an ever-growing society by developing ongoing academic research and projects, and we’ll be able to visualize those changes through this website. This achievement will shine even more when we are members of our society, as well as academics, hands-on, and people from all over the world.

  • Purpose; The Korean police are tasked with maintaining the order of security, focusing on the local po-lice, who are both national and closest to residents. It was necessary to systematically identify and take countermeasures against the preventive police, whose psychological status of police officers' psychological contract violations based on organizational changes and employment relations, based on the assumption that the relationship to the organized civic action was negative, and to investigate the organizational Jus-tice of local police officials in Korea and the psychological contract violation factors that were closely relat-ed to their work. The Korean police system, which has changed its organization, suggests that the local police-centered autonomous police system, which is scheduled to be implemented soon, is ideal for local police officers at the level of metropolitan and provincial governments. This should be a discussion on the introduction of a local police-centered autonomous police system based on the will of residents-friendly local residents rather than the introduction of a self-governing police system suitable for the government's policies. This is due to the effective functioning of local police to effectively operate crime prevention and investigation functions of local police to improve the quality of life of residents. Therefore, If the government identifies the organizational fairness of Korean police officers who have a significant impact on organizational civic action and the factors influencing psychological contract violations after the contract, and sets the goal for improvement, it will improve the quality of security services by enhancing the level of organized civic action of Korean police officials. There has been a lot of discussion about autonomous police, but there has been no active discussion among local police officers trying to restructure the Korean police-oriented organization in line with the realization of investigative rights. This led to the need for re-search. The results of this study suggest that the psychological contract violation and organizational Justice of the Korean police can have a significant impact on organizational civic behavior, and that the quality of the security service is expected to be improved by the quality of the police activities of senior officers, police officers, and police officers.

  • The strategy to control and minimize the possibility of potential crimes in advance physically in terms of urban planning and architectural design according to social changes is "Crime Prevention Through Envi-ronmental Design(CPTED)." CPTED began to be applied in the United States in the 1970s and is widely considered in Japan in terms of residential environment planning. And recently, as interest in safe cities or crime prevention cities has increased in Korea, CPTED is being integrated in earnest. However, although the physical environment or components of urban and residential areas in Korea are seemingly similar to those of the West, differences exist in the components. Therefore, it is difficult to incorporate CPTED, which has been studied and devel-oped abroad, into Korean cities. In order to find a more efficient way to create a safe residential environ-ment in reality, we need to understand the characteristics of Korean cities and proceed with the study based on them. The CPTED strategy is more effective if applied when initially planning the residential complex than in im-proving the existing co-residential complex. But this is limited to redevelopment areas such as newly devel-oped towns and cities. In the case of existing co-residential complexes, which may be vulnerable to crime, improvements such as installing additional CCTVs or introducing unmanned crime prevention systems in the complex can have considerable effects. In addition, visibility of the space should be high in order to en-able natural surveillance, and above all, it should be bright by light and lighting fixture and should not be obscured from facilities and landscaping. And we should find ways to limit crime by using security measures and lighting to dampen the criminals' psychology before they commit a crime. This cannot be done with the environmental design alone, so physical means such as professional personnel, unmanned security systems, etc. should be combined. However, simple changes in the physical environment have limitations in reducing crime or the fear of crime. The effect of crime prevention is maximized only when the organic solidarity of the community and the community consciousness of the local residents are preceded. An approach that activates the interac-tion of local communities through the expansion of active participation of residents in local autonomous administration and the vitalization of youth and women's activities should be pursued simultaneously with CPTED. In this regard, it is important to cooperate with local residents, police, local governments, local councils, and civic groups.

  • Background/Objectives; Indiscriminate and brutal crimes have occurred in our recently society. Among the crimes, recidivism of sexual crimes by sex offenders even with their electronic anklets increases, hence an improvement plan is urgently required in such a condition, which the effectiveness of the anklets, in ef-fect, is being questioned and challenged. This study recognizes the severity of the recidivistic and retaliato-ry crimes and proposes a sexual violence response system, an upgraded variation, via IOT-based smart de-vices, resolving problems in the existing model and enabling responses against sexual violence. Methods/Statistical analysis; The proposal model of sexual crime response system with IOT-based smart devices consists of 5 parts – Data collection and comparative analysis module, crime response module-sex offender response module/crime victim response module, Integrated D/B and posterior utility D/B. This sys-tem has the phased crime response mode activated to practice sex offender response when a sign of crimi-nal recidivism is captured and a crime sign is detected via attachment of Smart Electronic monitoring An-klets with various IOT-based sensors mounted, on ankles of the sex offenders. Simultaneously, to prevent recidivism by the sex offenders, the sexual violence victims are instructed to wear Smart Electronic Bracelet thereby, the states of the offenders are analyzed, and any recidivistic and criminal injury on the sexual vio-lence victims is minimized via operations of the phased crime victim response module when an injury occur-rence is detected. Findings; While the existing model only collected the sex offender data, the proposal model collects not only the offender data but also the sexual violence victim data through Smart Electronic monitoring Anklet and Smart Electronic Bracelet, thus more accurate prediction against crimes is enabled via the more ex-panded data collection. The proposal model, involving Smart Electronic monitoring Anklet and Smart Elec-tronic Bracelet, allowed a preventive sexual violence victim response mode, as well as the crime response mode coping with recidivism by sex offenders, by analyzing the data from both the offenders and the vic-tims. In manners of crime response patterns, the existing model only comparatively analyze the collected offender data and gradually operate the phased crime response module against the offender, while the proposed model distinguishes itself by operating response modules of both sex offenders and sexual vio-lence victims, having data of the both collected and analyzed. Improvements/Applications; Sexual violence response system with IOT-based smart devices, the pro-posal model, allows more accurate crime prediction via diversified data collection through Smart Electronic monitoring Anklets and Smart Electronic Bracelets, unlike the existing model and the current Electronic An-klet system being run by the Ministry of Justice. Moreover, by operating crime response modes – one al-lowing rapid response against recidivism to sexual crime victims and the other preventing recidivism based on analysis, the proposal has a difference in the extent of probable crime injury from sexual violence.

  • Police must always remain resilient and changeable to respond to environmental changes. The acquisi-tion of new knowledge and skills is inevitable, and furthermore, it is very important to induce changes in the perception, values, attitudes and behavior of individual police officers in order to cope with environ-mental changes and execute necessary tasks through education and training. Recently, police have been called on to deal effectively and actively with the situation of limiting materi-al and human resources along with increasing quantity and quality of crime, increasing the people's desire for safety and improving the expected level of police activities. At this point, the police should secure and train new police officers with professional and professional views to meet the expectations of the people. More than 95 percent of the nation's police officers are educated, trained at National Central Police Academy and assigned to practice. Most police officers working at the front line are being deployed through the education of the National Central Police Academy. Given this, we can see that the direction of education and its role of the National Central Police Academy are very important. However, the current National Central Police Academy is operated on the basis of regulation on educa-tion and training of police officials, which poses a major problem in securing legal stability. In addition, despite the importance of education for newly recruited police officers and the aforementioned problems, the reality is that there is a lack of prior research related to this. Therefore, prior studies were reviewed in this study to derive ways to improve the education system for Newly Recruited Police officers. Through prior research review, the enactment of National Central Police Academy establishment act and the improvement of the police education system were proposed. First, the National Central Police Academy establishment act will have to be enacted. Second, the expert professor system will have to be established. Finally, field-oriented education should be activated.

  • The purpose of this study is to suggest a plan which can minimize and solve criminal injuries of domestic violence that marriage migrant women in multicultural families who live in Korea experience in Korean so-ciety. For this, it concretely analyzed the domestic status of marriage migrant women in multicultural fami-lies, types and causes of criminal injuries of domestic violence that marriage migrant women in multicul-tural families who live in Korea experience in Korean society and examined the police’s responses to solve criminal injuries of domestic violence against them. It examined the criminal injury types of domestic vio-lence that marriage migrant women in multicultural families experience by classifying them into physical violence, psychological violence, economic violence, and sexual violence. And the causes of criminal injuries of domestic violence against them were analyzed to be caused by a false sense of ownership of women, the phenomena that domestic violence which is rampant in society is connived, and rapidly changing social environment. And in order to solve these problems, it examined the police’s responses by classifying them into the institutional level, cooperation with other agencies, and the educational level. For the police’s re-sponses at the institutional level, it suggested improvement of the police’s responsive ways, the vitaliza-tion of police activities, and the vitalization of various social and cultural programs for marriage migrant women in multicultural families. For the police’s responses through cooperation with other agencies, it dis-cussed the creation of institutional devices for participating in crime prevention activities of domestic vio-lence by connecting them to multicultural families, the immigration office, cities, counties, borough offices, multicultural centers, educational institutions, civic organizations, social welfare centers, etc. and active police-centered activities for preventing crimes of domestic violence. For the police’s responses at the edu-cational level, it examined the necessity of requiring the operation and expansion of professional and effec-tive multicultural educational programs targeting police officers.
