Criminal Justice Project: Drug Interventions Programme - DIP Activity in Sefton (2020/21)
The aim of the Drug Interventions Programme (DIP) is to identify and engage with offenders in the criminal justice system who use drugs and/or alcohol, and encourage them to engage with appropriate treatment services in order to reduce acquisitive crime. The Criminal Justice Intervention Team (CJIT) data set captures client information, episode details (including drug and alcohol use, and offending behaviour), referrals to structured treatment and recovery support sub-interventions. This DIP Activity report for Sefton presents data for clients accessing the CJIT between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021. It complements the monthly DIP performance reports by providing an annual snapshot of the CJIT data set, including episode details and client demographics.
