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.

  • The Korean government recently announced a strong motivation to introduction of a local police system. The local police system is within the scope of local self-government and can not be discussed separately from local self-government. In other words, it is necessary to introduction of a local police system to complete the local self-governing system and to promote its system. The local police system should be able to realize the basic ideology of the local self-government of the constitution and the grassroots of democracy. To do so, the local police system needs to be implemented by the basic local government. In addition, the local police office should be able to carry out the tasks required for securing the local security, such as advanced overseas systems. However, the current Korean government has a limit that does not meet the intent of local self-government. In other words, the local police system is set up as a metropolitan government, which has the limitation of violating the rights of the basic local government. In addition, in the case of the local police affairs, it is restricted to the administrative police affairs and simple sexual violence and domestic violence, therefore its limited to per-form the police affairs. Therefore, this study examines whether the local police system announced by the present government meets the local self-governing system.

  • The purpose of this study is to examine the appropriateness of the Korean police English test, to analyze the test types, to discuss the related issues, and to find out the effective employment method of police officers by conducting more efficient English test. This study examines the types of police English tests currently being con-ducted and looks at how they relate to police job relevance and how helpful they are. The results of the study are as follows. The current police English test is presented as a multiple choice type, and it is judged to be a type that examines the degree of knowledge related to English, not the type that assesses the actual use ability of English. It is designed to find the correct answers based on the candidate's grammar and vocabulary knowledge, so it does not have much effect on practical help when using English in real working environment. In a real working environment, when a common police officer uses English, communication and understanding based on mutual communication become a prerequisite. However, current testing does not meet these requirements. Therefore, the items used in the police recruitment test also need to be modified to meet the conditions. The most appropriate type of test for assessing English proficiency is judged to be essay writing and in-depth interview. This test type is effective in identifying the candidate's language proficiency and expressiveness. Changes in the type of English test will have a direct impact on the police work activities and should be improved with close attention.

  • Recently the Republic of Korea has increasingly competitive with the growth of global IT companies such as Samsung and LG in terms of industrial technology. According to the International Institute for Management Development of Switzerland in March 2014, Korea is ranked 6th in the world in terms of science and technology competitiveness and has the world's best technologies in mobile, semiconductor, LCD, shipbuilding, petrochemical and smartphone. However, as industrial technology competitiveness increased, technology leakage crimes are also rising. Ac-cording to the Korean police, the arrest rate of the industrial technology leakage in Korea is higher each year, and the damages amounted o approximately USD 80 million per year in terms of their economic value. Therefore, such industrial technology leakage crime can not be prevented by the national authority alone, and now, Korea, just like other leading developed nations, can cooperate with national institutions and private companies to prevent and respond to industrial technology leakages, and in the case of hybrid policing, a detective system should also be introduced. Such a detective system was positively perceived in August 2012 when two of the 60 OLED TVs that were shipped by Samsung Electronics to exhibit at the IFA 2012 in Germany were stolen and it was not the German police but the local detective hired by Samsung Electronics who resolved the case. Starting with this case, Korean companies began to positively perceive the activities of detective in order to prevent and respond to industrial technology leakages. Therefore, in this study, I intend to examine changes in the security environment and the directions of introducing detective system following the industrial technology leakage crimes in Korea.

  • This study was designed to identify the perception towards social minorities and the variables which influence such perception for 230 preliminary police trainees of the Central Police Academy. The data were collected through the survey questionnaires and a multiple regression analysis was performed to conduct frequency analysis, descriptive statistics, and learn about the sense of social distance. The analytical results are as follows. First, the average value of the sense of social distance towards North Korean refugees perceived by police trainees is 5.10 or higher, whose hierarchical priority is not clear, yet the questionnaires of whether they are accepted as members of the family showed a relatively low average value(4.30). Second, reviewing the final multiple regression analytical results by entering negative stereotypes and negative feelings, it was shown that negative feelings(β=-9.887 p <.001) have a significant influence on the sense of social distance of North Korean refugees of the police trainees. This indicates that the higher the negative feelings, the higher the sense of the social distance towards the North Korean refugees, which results in the difficulty of accepting them and the greater sense of social distance. This study is meaningful because it presented the relationship between the sense of social distance and the influential variables towards the North Korean refugees for the police trainees who will become the preliminary police officers. Notwithstanding the results of this study, there are limitations on the number of samples, sample selection method, and cross-sectional study.
