How do police deal with crime throughout Europe? Which decisions are taken by the prosecution services? How many offenders are convicted and how are they sanctioned? How many police officers and prosecutors are there in any given country? What can be learned from survey data of victim and offender surveys? The fourth edition of the European Sourcebook of Crime and Criminal Justice Statistics contains data for 40 European countries. In order to make the reader aware of possible limitations to the comparability of figures, all chapters contain information on offence definitions and recording practices. At present, this is the largest collection on criminal justice and crime-related data covering Europe.
