TERRoutledge International Handbook of Forensic Intelligence and Criminology !

Edited by a group of four professors from the Université de Lausanne (École des sciences criminelles) and the Université de Montréal (École de criminologie), the Routledge International Handbook of Forensic Intelligence and Criminology provides an original perspective of the several dimensions of cross-contribution of forensic science and criminology. Through the lens of 36 international authors – experienced practitioners, promising young scientists, and renown academics – this handbook unveils the common roots of these two disciplines, highlights some examples of actual combined practice, and provides possible outlines of a deeper involvement of both disciplines for building knowledge around criminal activities.

The picture was made by Rodolphe Archibald Reiss (1875-1929, founder of the school of Lausanne), near 1911, when he was teaching in St-Petersburg and Moscow. This board was used to train police officers to understand what should be observed during a control to identify specific burglars known as “Celling drillers”. Indeed, in the early years of the 20th century, some offenders went upstairs of the targeted premises, made a small hole in the floor, insert the umbrella and opened it, they could then enlarge the hole (the debris fell down in the umbrella) and finally they used the ladder to go down to commit the theft. The Russian inscription on the board is 'The physical evidences collected at the scene of the crime'.Bringing together perspectives from international experts, this conference comes as a welcome extension of the reflection initiated in the Book.
