All Wales Criminal Justice Board

All Wales Criminal Justice Board

The All Wales Criminal Justice Board was established in May 2011 with representatives from the Police, Her Majesty's Court Service (HMCS), Youth Justice Board (YJB), Victim Support, NHS Wales, Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), National Probation Service, Welsh Government, National Offender Management Service (NOMS), Ministry of Justice, and the Legal Services Commission.

The Board promotes closer partnership working between criminal justice agencies and Community Safety Partnerships, providing a multi-agency strategic approach to issues which impact on the quality of life of those living in our communities. The Board provides the strategic priorities for local criminal justice boards in each of the four Welsh police force areas and also monitors performance.

Through working in collaboration, the Board aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice services provided to the public, ensure focus is maintained on the most serious issues impacting communities, make local communities safer, and that the needs of victims are supported.
