More Than Half of Moroccan Young Males Have Police File

More than half of Moroccan young males between the ages of 12 and 22 have police files. One third of these are registered five or more times in the police’s HKS system. For young male immigrants from Surinam the figure is 43% and for young Turks it is 41%. The average for Dutch males of the same age group is 23%. In addition 5% of all Dutch girls of that age group have a police file. For girls from Surinam it is 17 % and for Moroccan girls it is slightly under that figure. This research was based on those born in 1984 and was published in the Tijdschrift voor Criminologie (Journal of Criminology).
