The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Local Criminal Justice Board

The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Local Criminal Justice Board (LCJB) brings together agencies with responsibility for delivering criminal justice services for communities in Hampshire and Isle of Wight with a common purpose, specific aims, clear direction and shared accountability.


About the LCJB

Working together to deliver a fair, effective and efficient criminal justice system in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The criminal justice landscape is complex and multi-faceted and no single agency is responsible for the system as a whole.  It is vital that criminal justice agencies are unified in their ambition and work together in the most efficient and effective way possible, to improve outcomes both for victims of crime and people who offend.

By working together, we can ensure a better shared understanding, enable cost savings through more efficient ways of working and provide a more joined-up and effective criminal justice system that is better able to focus on justice for victims and offenders.

Vision, purpose, and members of the LCJB

The LCJB’s vision is to deliver in partnership, a fair, effective and efficient Criminal Justice System, focusing on the service given to victims and witnesses of crime, prevention and rehabilitation of offenders in order to make Hampshire and the Isle of Wight a place where people will feel safe to live, work and visit.


The purpose of our LCJB is to deliver measurable outcomes that enable excellence in service delivery to all local residents in order to raise public perception to both be safe and feel safe. This is achieved by:

  • influencing at a national level
  • challenging and holding each other to account with honesty, energy and transparency
  • developing positive relationships across the CJS to add collective value and unblock perceived and real issues within the system
  • being ambitious and innovative for the people we serve.

Our priorities
  • Improve the service delivered to Victims and Witnesses
  • Reduce re-offending and reduce crime
  • Deliver an effective and efficient criminal justice system

Through monitoring and measuring performance meaningfully and collectively, the LCJB will know whether the plan is working. Effective collaborative working by criminal justice agencies across the LCJB sub-groups is essential to deliver the priorities.

The LCJB is also committed to communicating the work that is on-going within the criminal justice system to promote justice and provide a better understanding to the residents of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Annual reports and progress review
Channel 4 documentary 'Crime and Punishment'

Four years ago the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Criminal Justice Board started the conversations with the production company, 72 Films, to develop the documentary, Crime and Punishment that is currently being broadcast on Channel 4. We agreed to allow access to cameras across the entire system to provide a unique insight into the complexity and challenges we face every day.

This series is important because it will help to build understanding of the dilemmas and difficult decisions that have to be made to balance the rehabilitation of offenders with the safety and protection of the public. It highlights the tireless dedication and determination of the staff working in the system and the responsibility and risks they take to protect the vulnerable and the public.

There is no doubt that this series is hard hitting and thought provoking. As the system is filmed at a time of unprecedented demand viewers will not only see the challenges on each agency in the system but also on the staff who are making challenging decisions within a complex system.

As a board we would like to reassure the public that while they will see the challenges, they will also see the strong partnership working within the system that enables us to tackle the dilemmas and difficulties we all face.
