Criminal Justice Services

Crime is destructive for both individuals and communities. It creates victims, stifles opportunity, generates fear and hostility, and blights lives. Here we cover policies and interventions aimed at stopping people getting into trouble as well as offender management. We look at policies aimed at steering young people away from drugs and crime, teaching them new skills, providing housing and support, and creating new opportunities. For offender management, we cover work with people in prison, on post-release licences and on community sentences. We highlight policies that aim to stop offending, provide positive skills, help them find a suitable home and create chances for people to move on from crime and to give something positive back to their communities.

This collection is made up of full text reports on the criminal justice service, available to view free of charge
