Offender management involves a range of strategies aimed at holding perpetrators accountable and reducing violent behavior. Such strategies include enforcing the law and pursuing criminal justice sanctions against the perpetrator. Offender management can include arrest/investigation, referrals to behaviour change programmes or programmes for alcohol and/or substance abuse, as well as indirect work to manage risk such as more intensive probation, police surveillance, information-sharing between agencies.
