Inspection Reports

 
Criminal Justice Inspection’s reports detail the findings of the inspection team and the recommendations for improvement made by CJI as a result of each inspection.
 
Each inspection report is shared with the inspected organisation/s prior to publication to guarantee the accuracy of its content.
 
Since the devolution of policing and justice matters, all CJI’s inspection reports are presented to the Northern Ireland Assembly.
 
They are published in hard copy and electronic format. All electronic copies of CJI reports can be viewed within this section.
