Week in Justice 4 June 2017

As you would expect, another quiet week on the criminal justice front with the country sadly preoccupied with more terror attacks and focused on Thursday's election.

Crime has hardly figured in the campaigns since the fuss about Diane Abbott getting in a muddle about the cost of more police officers.

Some interesting content, nonetheless with a focus on prisons. An important new report from Prison Reform Trust on a two-year action research project which demonstrated that it is prisons, rather than employer attitudes, which present the main barriers to offenders finding work.

There's also a slew of international best practice including details on the Finnish and Norwegian penal models and a new approach to treat, not imprison, US mentally ill offenders.

As always, just click on the tile to read the source content.
