Criminal justice

Our research assesses the performance of criminal justice services and how to improve them.

Criminal justice is a key priority for any government. Our research, events and commentary analyse changes to funding and demand for criminal justice, and the impact of government policies on its performance and on the workforce that delivers it.

We assess how performance has changed over time, model the future demand facing the criminal justice sector and explain how the system operates.
