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.

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.
