How confident are you in the fairness of the criminal justice system bringing offences to justice

Welcome to the homepage of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Criminal Justice Board.

The aim of this site is to provide a source of information and a channel of communication with the Criminal Justice System for YOU, the citizens of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

What is the Criminal Justice Board?

  • It is a radical new initiative started on 1 April 2003
  • It comprises the Head of each Criminal Justice Agency (see Board Members)
  • It is the first time Heads of each Agency have been held collectively responsible for performance of the system as a whole
  • The Board has been set tough targets by the Government and in addition has set itself tough targets
  • As well as being accountable to the Government, the Board is accountable to YOU, the public, whom it serves

The result is a far more integrated system which is already starting to show major improved performance see achievements

In order to achieve improvement we need to not only keep you informed but we must also listen and act on your concerns. So please do get in touch and let us know your thoughts and concerns about the CJS,
