Crime Trends is a compendium of Brå's assessment of trends and changes in criminal behaviour over time. Knowledge from reports and statistics – published primarily by Brå, as well as by other participants in the criminal policy arena – is compiled in the report.
The primary selection of the types of offences or groups of offences which are included is made from among offences which are serious and/or have many victims.
The focus in this report is on the 21st century and issues regarding change in the scope and structure of criminality, who the perpetrators are, who the victims are, administration by the criminal justice system, and the crime prevention and criminal policy measures which are employed.
