Criminal Damage in the North West

Project: Non-funded ProjectProjects


ASSURE (Applied Social Science Unit for Research and Evaluation) were commissioned in February 2007 to conduct a short piece of research on young people and criminal damage by Lancashire Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (Strategic) working in conjunction with Government Office North West.

This evaluation will hopefully assist in understanding and help the CDRP to tackle criminal damage problems caused by young people between the ages of 14 - 25.

The main theme is centred on: The motivation of young people in the North West for committing acts of criminal damage.

We hope this evaluation report assists in addressing the problem of criminal damage across Lancashire by adding to the discourse considering the nature, context, motivation and target type for the problem. We hope that our recommendations add to considerations of how this problem might be managed in the future.
