Lasting Change or Passing Fad? Problem Solving Justice in England and Wales

Recently, Governments have sought to address the public’s concerns about crime by importing an innovative crime-fighting strategy from the US known as “problem-solving” justice. This is the idea that the justice system should do more than simply process cases – it should actively seek to aid victims, change the behaviour of offenders, and improve public safety in our neighbourhoods.

This report seeks to identify strategies that reformers can utilise to spread problem-solving justice as broadly as possible in a time of shrinking resources.
