General Information

To meet the increasing needs of information technology the Department of Information Management was founded in 1989. Eight years later, a graduate program was set up for advanced study. The main goal of the department is to educate information professionals for thepolice agencies. The program is designed to deliver knowledge from four aspects: information technology, management science, police science, and computer crime investigation. Information technology enables us to automate police operations through computer systems to replace the traditional manual operations. The study of management science concentrates on promoting police operational efficiency. Police science focuses on preparing qualified law enforcement officers for our society. Computer crime investigation is designed to tackle the rapidly growing cyber crime to maintain order of network society.


Information Management program is designed to accommodate students who wish to combine academic research with managerial knowledge and organizational issues in real life. The curriculum consists of components from various fields of information science and technology, and a core course of police science and humanities.

Engage in research of police information techniques: research the police information structure, applying knowledge gained to distributed processing techniques, information retrieval systems, expert systems, crime model system analysis, traffic forensic information systems, information systems for fire-fighting and emergency rescue, crime investigation forensic systems, information systems for criminal investigation (fingerprint identification, facial recognition, DNA, voice, and stamp recognition), police telecommunication systems, digital evidence, and cyber crime and its prevention technology. All of these provide bridges to police work, enhancing the police performance and offering better services to the people.

Hold conferences on information and police science regularly to promote academic exchange. Faculty and students are encouraged to participate conferences, to do researches, and to discuss the course planning with experts from other schools.
