A pilot with enhanced supervision is part of a broader plan of action to prevent recidivism and stimulate resocialization of juvenile offenders of High Impact Crimes (HIC). Examples of HIC-offenses are mugging, robberies and home burglaries. Promising recidivism figures for adult perpetrators in the past, were reason to start a pilot ‘enhanced supervision’ of juvenile HIC-offenders.1 Examples of enhanced supervision are electronic monitoring, a curfew, compulsory schooling, treatment and a contact ban.
A main goal of the research project was to examine whether enhanced supervision was implemented according to the pilot memo ‘Enhanced supervision of juvenile HIC-offenders’ and to what extent an effectiveness study and implementation evaluation is possible. Another goal was to examine any bottlenecks and possible improvements in the implementation practice.
