In the Netherlands, the police and the Public Prosecution Service have developed the intervention Hack_Right as an alternative or additional criminal procedure for juvenile computer crime offenders.

Hack_Right aims to prevent recidivism among participants and provides frameworks in which participants can develop their IT talent in a legal manner. In order to achieve this goal, participants are linked to (cyber security) companies. At these companies, the youngsters complete assignments in which they reflect on their crime, learn about ethical hacking and make technical products.

Currently, 14 Hack_Right pilots have been completed. Our study aims to evaluate the Hack_Right intervention and the pilots that have been carried out so far, in order to identify effective and non-effective principles of the intervention. We interviewed 28 respondents involved in the 14 cases: ranging from the public prosecutors that assigned the intervention to the offenders to probation officers, mentors within the cybersecurity companies and the offenders their selves. Preliminary results will be discussed during the presentation.
