the criminology and criminal justice network
I am conducting a piece of research exploring attitudes to mentally disordered offenders with the aim of beginning to look at how we can effect those attitudes by awareness raising and education.
By investigating how the publics' attitudes to MD offenders can be changed, it is hoped that understanding of the issues facing these types of offenders will increase and lead to a reduction in fear and stereotyping. It is important that this happens so that there can be an increase in the allocation of resources to helping MD offenders. These resources could help to reduce re-offending rates, lead to improved public protection and a reduction in the cost of MD offenders being supported by the criminal justice.
