What role can 2020 Police and Crime Commissioners play in tackling crime, ensuring the justice system is fair and effective, and addressing the needs of their communities?

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) play a crucial role in tackling crime, addressing the needs of their communities, and ensuring the justice system is fair and effective. In this role, PCCs can stimulate local innovative practice, bring together organisations and individuals from across the criminal justice system to make these initiatives a success and make substantial change to the lives of people affected by crime.

The Criminal Justice Alliance (CJA) and the Centre for Justice Innovation (CJI) have launched a new briefing highlighting some of the main challenges facing the criminal justice system and providing practical, innovative solutions that prospective PCCs could include in their manifestos for the 2020 elections.
