Psychosocial and neurobiological criminogenic characteristics of detainees in the Dutch Caribbean

Psychosocial and neurobiological criminogenic characteristics of detainees in the Dutch Caribbean

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This study into the psychosocial and neurobiological criminogenic characteristics of detainees in the Dutch Caribbean was requested by the Research and Documentation Centre and the correctional institutions service due to the fact that prison personnel noticed that behavioural problems among detainees within the correctional institution in Bonaire (JICN) were increasing. There is currently no satisfactory overview of the characteristics of the detained population within the JICN, and therefore this report provides this overview based on both psychosocial and neurobiological characteristics, including the indication for a mild intellectual disability. Furthermore, the conditions within the JICN, as well as how the JICN is embedded within the society and the judicial system are described.
