How does the CJB work?
The CJB brings agencies together to discuss work that affects two or more of its members. As well as the CJB itself, which is a strategic meeting, there are sub-groups made up of people working in the local criminal justice agencies. These groups identify problems and propose solutions to the board. The CJB and its subgroups each meet four times a year.
What are the CJB Subgroups?
The CJB subgroups are:
- Efficiency and Effectiveness – which focuses on the interactions between the agencies in the Criminal Justice System
- Reducing Offending – which identifies and recommends interventions to reduce offending and reoffending in our communities
- Victims and Witness Care - which aims to improve the experiences of victims of crime, but within and outside of the formal criminal justice system.
Support is provided to the CJB and all of its groups by an Equality and Diversity group made up of experts from the key agencies working with the public in the area.
