Impact Statement for Business is an assessment of impact on business due to crime

A witness statement allows a witness to give evidence to the court about the circumstances and nature of a crime. This will be used by the court to establish whether a crime was committed and by whom. When sentencing a person found ‘guilty’ of that crime, an ISB enables a business to set out the impact a crime has had on the business and this will be considered by the court when determining the appropriate sentence for the crime.

Promoting healthy brain development in utero reduces criminal behavior

There is a growing literature on biological explanations of antisocial and criminal behavior. This paper provides a selective review of three specific biological factors – psychophysiology (with the focus on blunted heart rate and skin conductance), brain mechanisms (with a focus on structural and functional aberrations of the prefrontal cortex, amygdala, and striatum), and genetics (with an emphasis on gene-environment and gene-gene interactions). Overall, understanding the role of biology in antisocial and criminal behavior may help increase the explanatory power of current research and theories, as well as inform policy and treatment options.
