    Abstract

    The Local Justice Reinvestment (LJR) Pilot tested the extent to which local partners in six pilot sites could be incentivised to work together more effectively to tackle crime and reduce reoffending. The partners would receive a financial reward if they reduced adult demand on criminal justice services by 5% or more and youth demand by 10% or more in each of the two test years (July 2011 – June 2012, July 2012 – June 2013) measured against the baseline period (July 2010 – June 2011). The pilot sites were Greater Manchester and the London boroughs of Croydon, Hackney, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark; covering adult and youth criminal justice systems in all sites except Hackney. This report focused on the initial findings from a process evaluation of the LJR pilot (commissioned by the MoJ) and examined the early development and implementation of the pilot in the first test year. The methodology was primarily qualitative and included: interviews with strategic and operational managers; interviews and focus groups with front line staff; workshops to map partnership and criminal justice system (CJS) changes and a focus on exemplar interventions at three sites.
