Abstract :

The National Crime Trends Observatory (Observatoire national de la délinquance - OND) is one of three departments of the public management institution "National Institute of High Studies in Security" (Institut national des hautes études de sécurité). Its main purpose is to collect statistical data regarding delinquency among all ministerial departments and both public and private organisations linked more or less closely to threats to people and property, to analyse these statistics in order to draw conclusions and communicate them to concerned ministries and organisations and to the general public. The OND also publishes victimation studies as well as monthly and annual statistical reports based on observations made by police services and gendarmerie units
