Recidivism Prevention Measures
Do you know what happens after someone commits a crime or delinquency?
The Ministry of Justice is promoting “recidivism prevention measures”, which guide and support people so they do not commit crimes again after returning to society. The aim of guidance and support is to encourage those who committed crimes to repent and become members of society again without returning to crime or delinquency, leading to a safe and secure society for all.
To achieve this, the Ministry relies on public understanding and support for recidivism prevention measures.
