Created in 2003, the National Observatory on Crime and Criminal Justice (ONDRP) is a department of the National institute for Advanced Studies in Security and Justice (INHESJ).
Its missions are to measure and analyse crime tendencies in France and abroad through victimizations surveys, annual police data and statistics produced by all type of administration services, professional organizations and private bodies. The ONDRP produces regular publications and is involved in national and international research projects.
Linked to Prime minister services, the ONDRP is headed by an independent council. Its team consists of a mix of statisticians, criminologists, sociologists and cartographers. It has developed partnerships with the National institute of statistics (INSEE), police and justice services, the Committee on the protection of women from violence and the prevention of human trafficking (MIPROF), universities, and many public and private bodies fighting crime.
