New Chief Inspector joins CJI


Jacqui Durkin has begun her appointment as the new Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice in Northern Ireland by paying tribute to her predecessor and looking forward to the challenges of the role.

“CJI is a progressive organisation, clearly focussed on improving the criminal justice system.  I look forward to creating new relationships with the justice, voluntary and community sector organisations and other key stakeholders to further improve and develop the criminal justice system.

“Giving assurance to the public on where the system is effective, as well as highlighting where it needs to be better, will be a key feature of my role.

“At an early stage, I will be taking an active role in creating the Inspection Programme for the next financial year and working with my team to develop a challenging and relevant Business and Corporate Plan,” she added.
