About the Council
To be successful the criminal justice sector needs a shared vision of what a future criminal justice system will look like. This requires commitment and common purpose.
The Council is a platform for high level discussions around issues affecting the criminal justice system, promoting and supporting a contemporary, effective and efficient criminal justice system, which maintains justice and integrity, inspiring the confidence of the public.
The Council came together in July 2013 and is chaired by the Hon John Rau MP Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Reform.
The Council consists of the Minister for Police and Minister for Correctional Services, the Minister for Communities and Social Inclusion, the Minsiter for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation, the Under Treasurer, and heads of relevant agencies across the criminal justice sector: South Australia Police (SAPOL), the Courts Administration Authority (the CAA), the Legal Services Commission (the LSC), the Department for Correctional Services (DCS), the Director of Public Prosecutions (the DPP), the Attorney-General’s Department (AGD) and the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI).
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Australia, the Chief Judge of the District Court of South Australia and the Chief Magistrate of the Magistrates Court are observers.
The Council supports initiatives to deliver the following outcomes across the criminal justice sector:
- Improve service delivery and ensure service is fair and just
- Increase public confidence
- Increase efficiency
- Where possible reduce costs, and
- Build continuous improvement capability.
The Council has developed a set of Performance Measures (see above) across the criminal justice sector as a whole that can best assist and inform the Council, the criminal justice system and the community to determine whether project aims and expectations are being met.
