The relationship between alcohol and crime is highly topical and increasingly important to policy makers. The connection between alcohol consumption and crime has significant implications for the implementation of appropriate interventions and policies. In recent years a number of studies have identified a relationship between alcohol and crime. Whilst this relationship is complex, it is clear that alcohol is a contributing factor in a number of crimes. This study builds on previous research and analyses the results of alcohol screening for excessive drinking amongst people in police custody in Aberdeen.
