Transforming Justice Through Technology

Transforming Justice Through Technology

April 27, 2021


The Government has ambitions to deliver digital justice and high-quality rehabilitation programmes to protect the public and swiftly and accurately dispense justice. For this to be achieved, a criminal justice service that is responsive, flexible, transparent and just and puts those whom it serves at the heart of it all, is a must. This needs to include a vision of a criminal justice system that embraces the use of modern technology.

Technology and data are the backbone of delivering an outcomes-focused system. A digital platform where the right people can securely access and share information at critical moments can integrate organisations and foster joint approaches to justice that support the user.

As individuals move from police right through to probation, secure access to technology and data can deliver the right services for users, enhance efficiencies and transform rehabilitation outcomes. Used accordingly, technology has the power to deliver a first-class criminal justice system fit for the modern age.

Alongside this, the advancement in the use of technology needs to be matched by a look again at the culture of our criminal justice service and a re-commitment to seeing that those who provide much of the input, victims and witnesses, are also recognised as those on whom the outcomes often depend.
