Collecting of information on substance abuse by perpetrators of violence

Collecting of information on substance abuse by perpetrators of violence

Summary

On the basis of the government's ambition to reduce alcohol- and drug-related violence, work has been done in the past few years at three pilot locations on designing and testing a new method of collecting information on substance abuse by perpetrators of violence. The pilots are aimed at exploring the possibillities to improve the information situation of the police in such a way that information can be used to provide support in making choices of the most appropriate judicial and preventive measures aimed at reducing recidivism among perpetrators of violence.
