Between verdict and detention

Between verdict and detention

Summary

The WODC regularly draws up prognoses for the sanction capacity required. Sources defining the criminal sanction capacity of the prison system for adults differ however, specifically the models operated by the WODC and the Custodial Institutions Service (DJI). The aim of this memorandum is to establish which factors may explain the differences in level and, particularly, in the development between the WODC and the DJI to enable future prognoses to allow for this phenomenon. Content: 1. Introduction; 2. Inaccuracy in sentencing data; 3. Imprisonment ordered, but not implemented; 4. No imprisonment ordered, yet person had been in prison; 5. Shifts in time; 6. Conclusion and recommendations.
