In 2008, the Criminal Justice platform identified the subject of “recidivism” as a matter of prime concern.
After examination of the national legislation with regard to re-offending and after an exchange of views on existing

The platform has explored the links between crime and drug-use and compared data on “acquisitive” crime, i.e. all crimes feeding the drug habit. The work is still under way.
