    Drug-Crime Connections challenges the assumption that there is a widespread association between drug use and crime. Instead, it argues that there are many highly specific connections. The authors draw together in a single volume a wide range of findings from a study of nearly 5, arrestees interviewed as part of the New English and Welsh Author: Trevor Bennett, Katy Holloway. This chapter focuses on the extent of drug use in society and among the offending population, the connection between drug use and crime, and the treatment and prevention programs aimed at curbing drug use. The relationship between drug use and criminal activity is a complex one. There is certainly a strong correlation between the two activities.

    Drugs, Crime, and Justice is an engaging, yet comprehensive, analysis of the interrelationships among drug use/abuse, crime, and first four chapters introduce readers to the interrelationships between drugs and crime, while the second later chapters provide readers with an overview of historical and contemporary policies, as well as a comprehensive review of research on policing. INTRODUCTION. Illegal drug use is “almost automatically” associated with criminal behaviour. The statistical relationship between illegal drug use and crime is convincing at first glance, but it is not possible to draw a conclusion regarding a definite cause-and-effect link between the two phenomena.

    also provides information on age of onset of drug use, fre - quency and pattern of use, high risk drug use as well as extent of drugs use, drug dependency, and sexual behavior among drug users. This report provides evidence for policy makers, both in government and outside government working in drug and crime control to inform the strategies. The use of illegal drugs is considered a criminal act in nearly all countries around the world, and drug use is almost automatically associated with criminal behavior. This act alone means that there is a link between drugs and crime. Research does suggest, however, that the majority of illegal drug users will not go on to commit other crimes.
