Earlier experiences of EM and EM release have been positive, and against this background the Swedish Parliament has decided to extend the use of intensive supervision with electronic monitoring for a trial period. The trial project, which was launched on 1 April 2005, meant among other things that the target groups for EM and EM release were expanded.
The National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) was commissioned by the Swedish Government to evaluate the trial project. An important part of this assignment involved describing how crime victims feel about the reform. The report is written by Stina Holmberg, Head of Division, and Inka Wennerberg, research analyst, both at Brå.
