Project

Police based interventions to prevent sexual offending and radicalisation. - project description

Published Updated

A systematic review of the effects of crime-prevention interventions that involve the police, specifically targeting sexual offending and radicalisation among youth.


Summary

In June 2019 the Department of Reviews and Health Technology Assessments at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health was commissioned by the National Police Directorate to conduct a systematic review of the effects of crime-prevention interventions that involve the police, specifically targeting sexual offending and radicalisation among youth. Youth comprise the majority of the criminally accused in Norway, and there has been an increase in sexual offending among youth. Radicalisation and violent extremism are not particularly widespread, but the consequences of violent actions rooted in radicalisation and extreme ideologies can be extensive. Prevention of youth offending is thus seen as important. In addition, crime prevention is a central strategy of police work. This project aims to strengthen the knowledge base for effective crime prevention by the police.
