People with intellectual disability are over-represented in the criminal justice system yet little is known about the nature or rate of reoffending in this group, or effective interventions which disrupt ongoing contact with the criminal justice system. Drawing on pilot mixed-method research which explored the triggers for reoffending, this presentation will set describe a range of primary and secondary triggers for reoffending. The process and outcomes of developing and piloting an analytic framework for identifying reoffending triggers will also be discussed.
