Seeking expressions of interest from members of the community to sit on the Criminal Justice Council

 The aims of the Criminal Justice Council are to seek to make the criminal justice system more effective and efficient so that it —

  • reduces crime;
  • reduces reoffending;
  • punishes offenders;
  • protects the public;
  • encourages the making of reparation;
  • increases public confidence in the system; and

(vii)     ensures that the system is fair and just;

It also aims to;

  • maintain an overview of the working of the criminal justice system in the Falkland Islands;
  • ensure a ‘whole system’ approach is taken to tackling issues across the criminal justice system and to overcoming operational barriers;

The Council needs a lay person who has a questioning attitude to the justice system and a non- legal sense of what justice should mean to add a different perspective.

Appointments to the Criminal Justice Council are personal appointments that are not political and as such it would not be appropriate for holders of political office to sit on the council.  This post is unlikely to be suitable for a person who has committed an imprisonable criminal offence.
