The new Government has a huge opportunity to reduce alcohol-fueled crime

Keith Humpreys, in The Project for Modern Democracy writes that in the UK,”the new Government will no doubt be expected to respond to the rise in knife crime . Such crime is a serious concern, but for every such offence there are about 15 violent crimes in which the victim judges that the offender is under the influence of alcohol.

Dr. Humphreys discusses sobriety programs that have been piloted in the UK.
