The ONDRP at a glance
The National Observatory of Crime and Criminal Justice (ONDRP) was set up in November 2003 to analyse crime trends and the associated criminal justice sanctions.
AN INDEPENDENT PUBLIC BODY THAT STUDIES CRIMINAL PHENOMENA
The ONDRP is attached to the National Institute for Advanced Security and Justice Studies (INHESJ), a public institution under the Prime Minister's supervision, whose status was enhanced by Decree No. 2015-1213 of 1 October 2015. It has an Advisory Board which oversees its work and shares information regarding the improvement of statistical systems and the production of knowledge on criminal phenomena. This Board guarantees its independence.
It is tasked with helping to improve knowledge of criminal phenomena and the characteristics of victims, implicated persons and convicted offenders by carrying out statistical studies or producing research articles.
The ONDRP Advisory Board is chaired by Stefan Lollivier, Inspector General of the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (Insee). Its members are elected representatives, security and justice stakeholders in the public and private sectors alike as well as representatives of the research world and the authorities. It is independent and determines the research aims and subjects of the ONDRP. It also defines the strategy guaranteeing the reliability and relevance of statistics.
The ONDRP is a recognised expert in France and abroad today.
