Deloitte’s international research programme on the Future of Criminal Justice has looked at criminal justice system at a time of huge upheaval and rapid change – with Covid-19 just the most immediate of the huge long-term shifts in society and technology that will create challenges and opportunities for leaders in justice systems across the world.

Join the team in this recent seminar, recorded as part of the Modernising Criminal Justice virtual summit, for a comprehensive summary of their study, with examples of brilliance and resilience as well as key learnings
Our presenters explore and discuss:

  • Examples of brilliance and resilience of how criminal justice agencies have supported public health and maintained services by shifting policies and ways of working, in some cases overnight.   
  • The problems of the response to Covid-19 that are now threatening to undermine trust in the criminal justice system for the long term. 
  • Court backlogs which are creating huge issues around access to justice – with police making arrests of serious offenders who might not be seen in court for years.
  • The increasingly unaffordable costs of prisons   
  • High rates of reoffending.
  • How we can use technology and human-centred design to tackle these issues.
  • The need for a new approach to leadership.
