Interactive online public consultation to inform the development of a

Strategy for the Criminal Justice System.

The Department of Justice and Equality is launching an online public consultation to inform the development of the first ever Strategy for the Criminal Justice System.

The Strategy is a sectoral initiative which aims to further embed a culture of collaborative working amongst the agencies that make up the Irish criminal justice system. This is the second phase of consultation on the Strategy, with stakeholder consultations having taken place earlier this year. These consultations involved representatives from organisations within the criminal justice system, State departments and agencies, civil society, academia and legal practitioners.

This phase of consultations consists of three parts; a survey and a call for written submissions which will be available shortly on the Department's website, as well as three interactive online consultation events.

This interactive online consultation event will last approximately two hours and its aim is to allow interested members of the public to have their say on the development of a new Strategy for the Criminal Justice System. Specifically, we will be asking you to think about ways the criminal justice system can work better as a whole, how the system should communicate or engage better with the public and how it interacts with system users. The output from this process will inform the development of the Strategy.

Interested parties are REQUIRED TO REGISTER IN ADVANCE in order to receive access details for the event, which will be hosted on Zoom. If you require any further details, please let the organisers know by emailing criminaljusticestrategyconsultation@justice.ie
