Background characteristics and recidivism among offenders of high impact crimes convicted between 2002 and 2016

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

For some years now, the term ‘high impact crimes’ (HIC) has been used in the Netherlands to indicate offences that have a major impact on the victim, their social environment and the sense of security in society. The classic HIC offences include domestic burglary, street robbery and non-street robbery (i.e., robbery inside a building such as a bank, shop or house). Recently, the government has made great efforts to combat the HIC problem, through various policy and safety programs and by setting up a Robbery Task Force.
The current study is a follow-up of two earlier recidivism studies among all convicted HIC offenders in the Netherlands in 2002-2013 and 2002-2015 and a feasibility study into regional recidivism rates among convicted HIC offenders. (see links at: More information).
