Department of Justice

Type: Public Sector

Website: https://www.justice-ni.gov.uk/

The Department of Justice (DoJ) was established in April 2010, following the devolution of justice powers to the Northern Ireland Assembly.  

DOJ’s objectives are centred around Problem-Solving Justice. Problem Solving Justice gives us scope to drive forward new and more imaginative strategies, based on addressing the underlying causes of offending behaviour.  Early intervention can help both the individual, and benefit wider society, and this is borne out by some of the positive work currently being taken forward by this Department.
