The Criminal Justice Special Interest Group has hung up its handcuffs!


The CJ SIG was set up formally in June 2006, soon after OR47 in Chester, where a well-supported stream of CJ papers energised those present to try to bring different parts of the CJ system together. The overall purpose of the group was to enable practitioners and others interested in Criminal Justice matters to share ideas and OR methods with a view to spreading the word about OR and improving the effectiveness and efficiency of criminal justice services, including police, prison and probation work plus Home Office and MoJ research/analysis. In practice the group also led to many members being encouraged in their use of OR and to become involved in the ORS, and they made many useful contacts.
