Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science - NICFS Rohini - NICFS
The Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science was established in 1972 within the Bureau of Police Research and Development following recommendations of the University Grants Commission (UGC) to set up a Central Institute for teaching Criminology and Forensic Science. The UGC had set up an Expert Committee to suggest steps needed to bring ‘Criminology’ and ‘Forensic Science’ into the general stream of university education, pursuant to resolution taken at a Symposium organized by UNESCO in London in 1955 that systematic understanding of Criminology and Forensic Science was necessary for Law Enforcement Officers and the Universities should be encouraged to include these disciplines in their curriculum. The NICFS made humble beginning in 1972 by organizing 2 training courses for senior Officers of the Criminal Justice System. In 1976 it became an independent Department directly under the Ministry of Home Affairs with a wider mandate which included promotion of Criminology and Forensic Science through a variety of means. During 40 year of existence, the Institute has made significant headway in the areas of training and research in applied aspects of the two subjects. Over 34,000 officers from Police and Civil Administration, Prosecution, Judiciary, Correctional Administration, Customs, Defence Forces and Forensic Science Laboratories have attended various orientation and specialized courses at the Institute. Officers from foreign countries, namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Fiji, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Malaysia, Maldives, Sudan, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Uganda and Zambia have also participated in some of these courses. The Institute has conducted several research projects in Criminology and Forensic Science and it operates several schemes for promotion of Criminology & Forensic Science. The Institute also offers M.A. /M.Sc. courses in Criminology & Forensic Science in affiliation with Guru Govind Singh Indra Prastha University since 2004. The Institute was upgraded as National Institute in 1991 and in 2003 the Institute was renamed after Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan.
