Study slams focus on persistent offenders

PUBLISHED October 18, 2004

The government's focus on persistent offenders is undermining the drive against serious crime, a new report warns today.

In a new study the Crime and Society Foundation warns that offences such as domestic violence, sexual assaults and crimes against children do not come to the attention of the authorities.
As a result the government's strategy to focus on known offenders is likely to see their crimes being ignored.
