Working with the courts system

Detailing many of the procedures surrounding the court system and how they work with children & young people, it includes details of what to expect if you are going to court.

The aims of the criminal justice system are wide-ranging.  The principle aims are to:

  • apprehend and provide appropriate sanctions against people who have committed offences
  • ensure that individuals who are guilty of offences are convicted, and that people who are innocent of offences are acquitted
  • ensure that individuals who have committed offences do not commit offences in the future
  • deter people who might commit offences from becoming offenders
  • ensure that members of the public and communities have confidence in the criminal justice system to deal with individuals who commit offences
