The Local Criminal Justice Board (LCJB) is an important element of the Criminal Justice System (CJS).

Our Aim

Delivering an efficient and speedy Justice System in South Yorkshire

Our Vision

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are areas where people have trust and confidence in a local criminal justice system, which supports victims, rehabilitates offenders and young people who commit crime, reduces reoffending, and delivers value for money.

We will achieve this by taking a collaborative approach so that by 2021 we have an end-to-end local criminal justice system, which operates effectively across organisational boundaries to deliver seamless services and positive outcomes for victims and people who offend, alongside more effective and efficient delivery of justice.

The local criminal justice system will play a key role in keeping communities safe, supporting positive social outcomes, preventing harm and reducing demand on services.

Our Local Priorities

In achieving our vision, our local priorities are to deliver:

  • An end-to-end service for supporting victims and witnesses
  • An end-to-end system for rehabilitating offenders and young people who commit crime, and reducing re-offending
  • A more efficient and integrated local criminal justice system

Our key objectives concern:

  • Delivering services which focus upon the needs of Victims and Witnesses
  • Reducing Crime and Re-offending
  • Delivering criminal justice services Efficiently & Effectively
