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).
