Criminal Justice Project: Drug Interventions Programme - DIP Activity in Sefton (2018/19)
The Drug Interventions Programme (DIP) in England has an overarching aim to identify and engage with offenders in the criminal justice system who use drugs and/or alcohol, and encourage them towards 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. DIP assessments allow CJIT workers to determine whether further intervention is required to address drug and/or alcohol use and offending. This DIP Activity report for Sefton presents data for clients accessing DIP between 1st April 2018 and 31st March 2019, contextualising CJIT data. It complements the monthly DIP Performance Reports by providing an annual snapshot of the CJIT data set.
