A way with science

National Institute of Criminology & Forensic Science announces essay competition

Criminology is the scientific study of the nature, extent, causes and control of criminal behaviour in both the individual and society, while forensic science is primarily concerned with the application of scientific principles for the investigation of crime. With criminals innovating in every possible way to outsmart the authorities, it's essential to expedite the research process to restore law and order by nabbing the guilty and putting them to trial.

The Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan National Institute of Criminology & Forensic Science has been contributing to this cause through various training programmes and even PG courses in these fields.

Taking a leap forward in its vision of promoting criminology and forensic science through education, research and training, Kamlendra Prasad, the director of the institute, announced an essay competition for PG students of criminology and forensic science in a press conference held on the campus at Rohini last week.

This competition is open to all post-graduate students of criminology and forensic science studying at any recognised university. The topics are as follows; ‘Criminology: Role of Community in Crime prevention and Control' and ‘Forensic Science: Identification of Hazardous Chemicals in Food and Cosmetics'.

Two first prizes of Rs.10,000 each and two second prizes of Rs.5,000 each will be awarded separately for each of the two subjects. The closing date for sending the entries is July 31, 2011. Detailed information about the competition can be found on the institute website www.nicfs.nic.in
