That offenders experience victimization at disproportionate levels to those who are not involved in offending is one of the consistent facts in criminology. Yet it is arguably one of the most understudied and neglected phenomena, both by researchers and by policy makers. Using data from police records of victimization from low-level offenders participating in the Turning Point Project based in Birmingham (United Kingdom), illustrate both how extensive and the prevalent types of victimization reported by these offenders. The results of this research suggest that violent victimization is a particular issue for these low-level offenders, and for some their experiences of victimization were complex and substantial in number. This has significant impacts when considering potential policies or when designing interventions for low-level offenders.
