Justice & prisons

Rebalancing the justice system in favour of victims of crime

The responsibilities the Home Office previously had for some areas of the justice system have now moved to the new Ministry of Justice. These pages will remain on the Home Office website for a short time during this transitionary period.

Ministry of Justice launched

As of May 2007, responsibility for probation, prisons and preventing re-offending moved from the Home Office to the new Ministry of Justice (new window).

The Home Office website will be updated over the coming weeks to reflect the changes to its structure and responsibilities.
