Gambling-related violence: an Issue for the police?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The co-relationship between addiction, violence and gambling is only just emerging. Police intervention may be needed in two main areas: (i) violence caused as a result of gamblers taking out their anger over losses on their partners; and (ii) violence caused by gamblers taking out their anger over losses on either the staff of the gambling premises or on other punters. This article reviews the research in this area and concludes that gambling-related violence can and does occur, and that when it does, it is definitely an issue for the police.
