THE deadline is approaching for members of the public to respond to a consultation on the proposed modernisation of the Isle of Man’s criminal justice system.
People have until 5pm on Friday (November 9) to submit their views on a new national strategy which identifies opportunities to improve processes, streamline administration and reduce the number of low-level offences appearing before the courts.
A number of radical changes are being proposed as part of a drive to make the Island’s criminal justice system better, faster, simpler, more cost efficient and fit for the future.
People can provide their feedback via an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/IOMCJSStrategy by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Criminal Justice Modernisation Strategy Consultation, Chief Secretary’s Office, Government Office, Bucks Road, Douglas, IM1 3PN.
A copy of the Criminal Justice Strategy is available on the Government website at http://www.gov.im/Consultations.gov
