The ninth in an annual series from the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, supported by The Hadley Trust, assessing year-on-year developments in criminal justice across the United Kingdom.

Since 2010, the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, with support from The Hadley Trust, has been assessing criminal justice developments across the UK through its UK Justice Policy Review programme.

Our latest publication – UK Justice Policy Review, Volume 9 – covers the turbulent period from the summer of 2018 to the December 2019 General Election.

The Review, like previous editions, focuses on the key criminal justice institutions: the police, the courts and access to justice, prisons, and probation, across the UK.

The report covers developments across the UK, including:

  • Key speeches 
  • Main legislation by the UK parliament and Scottish Parliament
  • Policing
  • Courts and access to justice
  • Prisons
  • Probation
