Criminal Justice Inspection Northern Ireland (CJI) proposes to undertake an inspection of the effectiveness of criminal Court administration by the Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service Ireland (NICTS/’the Service’).  This will include case processing, preparation of cases for Court, allocation of resources to support criminal Court hearings and the Judiciary, pre, in and post Court administration including the recording and communicating Court decisions and the provision of facilities and equipment for hearings. 
CJI Chief Inspector Jacqui Durkin has published the first in a series of reviews assessing the effectiveness of new legislation that created a new domestic abuse offence and aimed to better support victims and children affected by domestic abuse.

Since CJI was created two decades ago, we have continued to focus on independent and impartial inspections across the criminal justice system, aiming to encourage criminal justice organisations to make improvements and achieve outcomes towards a better justice system for all — a vision that remains relevant today in our ongoing work.
