Welcome to Criminal Justice Inspection Northern Ireland (CJI)

CJI is an independent statutory inspectorate with responsibility for inspecting all aspects of the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland apart from the judiciary.  It also inspects a number of other agencies and organisations that link into the criminal justice system.
 
It endeavours through its work to secure improvement and promote greater co-operation between the various statutory and voluntary organisations to provide a better justice system for the whole community in Northern Ireland.
 
CJI is also one of four designated organisations in Northern Ireland involved with the National Preventive Mechanism (NPM) which ensures the rights of those in places of detention such as prisons and police custody.
 
All of CJI’s activities are subject to a Quality Management System which is independently audited and certified to the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standard.
