Crime-Pics II is a widely used, fully validated questionnaire (c. M&A Research) for examining, and detecting changes in, offenders' attitudes to offending. It has been used for many years by academics and by a variety of public, private and voluntary sector organisations, including the prison and probation services in the UK, to evaluate the effectiveness of rehabilitative programmes and other interventions with offenders. It is now used in many international locations across Europe, Australasia, China and the Indian subcontinent.
Examples of studies and evaluations which have used Crime-Pics II are available here.
Direct download of the CRIME-PICS II Manual and Questionnaries is now available. Please see Ordering and Prices.
There is a new version of CRIME-PICS II designed for use in schools for all secondary school children, irrespective of offending history. It measures attitudes to crime and offending. It is in a pilot stage and there is only a nominal charge for its use at this time. However, users must share anonymised data with us. If you are interested and are able to provide data on at least 100 school children, please contact us.
Our email contact address has changed, please direct all enquires, including orders, to email@example.com.
A recent analysis of data from the Chinese version of Crime-Pics II, undertaken by Professor Wing Hong Chui and colleagues of the City University of Hong Kong, has found that it has good internal consistency and test–retest reliability, as well as evidence of construct, concurrent, discriminant, and predictive validity. They conclude that the instrument has "great potential utility in the context of the Chinese criminal justice system".
The Crime-Pics II scoring tool is available to download (currently version 1.1).
M&A also produce CRIAQ, a questionnaire for measuring impulsivity and aggression.
