Details

A document providing more information about the department’s plans to increase community access to local criminal justice information and services, in line with commitments in the Ministry of Justice business plan.

This document outlines these plans in more detail including information about the development of Neighbourhood Justice Panels, and increasing the transparency of court results and the effectiveness of sentences. 

These proposals collectively aim to improve community understanding of the service the Criminal Justice System provides.

In developing these proposals we have looked a a range of ways in which individuals and communities may seek to access local criminal justice services and at the different requirements and purposes of those who do so.
