Young people’s involvement in loosely connected criminal networks as well as clearly structured organized criminal groups is a problem. To work with Community Intervention Teams (CIT) is one idea on how to potentially prevent recruitment among young criminals. A pilot-version of CIT was implemented in 12 Swedish municipalities and it revealed that a fixed framework for how to work with CIT through structured ways of finding the target population and structured ways of how to assess the target population might be desirable. A structured model of CIT will therefore be developed within the current project. The project will lead to a handbook of CIT.
