The Stop-reaction

The Stop-reaction

a process evaluation

Summary

In the Netherlands, children under the age of twelve cannot be prosecuted. In 2001, the Stop-reaction was introduced nationally. The Stop-reaction is a voluntary offer for parents and their children under the age of twelve who have been found guilty of minor punishable offences. The general objective is to prevent a starting criminal carreer, e.g. to reduce recidivism. This part of the study examines the process of the Stop-reaction in practice.
