ACPO comment the launch of the new Criminal Justice System Strategy

PUBLISHED June 28, 2013

National policing lead on criminal justice Chief Constable Chris Eyre said:

"This strategy is the culmination of a great deal of work to plan for a lean, modern and responsive criminal justice system in an era of significant austerity and enormous change.

"Digitisation and simplification of criminal justice systems will ensure that scarce police resources can be used more effectively for the benefit of victims and communities.

"Victims and witnesses will receive better support and information through the use of modern technologies and proposals to make processes more efficient such as police led prosecution of simple and uncontested matters in the magistrates courts and case management initiatives led by the judiciary."
