Justice system overview
What is a Justice Audit? How does the criminal justice system function in law? How does it operate in practice? What do citizens and justice practitioners say about it? What is the volume of people and cases flowing through the criminal justice system and what strategies are available to improve efficiencies and fairness? The Justice Audit is a systematic, independent, examination of the criminal justice system to ascertain from data how it is functioning in any given year. The Audit lens travels along the entire system from community and policing to prison: how it works in law and in practice, zooming in on the flow and volume of cases and proposing where economies may be made.
