Criminal Justice

PCCs welcome the recommendations to develop their role in the criminal justice system as set out by the Home Secretary in Part Two of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Review. By putting PCC chaired Local Criminal Justice Boards (LCJBs) on a statutory footing, the review recognises the critical role that these Boards play, mobilising agencies to work together more effectively. With these further levers, PCCs can play a more integral role in improving the criminal justice journey for victims and witnesses.
