Police Reform within the Framework of Criminal Justice System Reform

During the last decade, it has been widely acknowledged among criminal justice practitioners, policy makers and academics that reforms in one sector of the Criminal Justice System (CJS) have to be complemented and synchronized with reforms in the other sectors in order to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the entire criminal justice process, increase access to security and justice for the population, and render sustainable the reform achievements in the CJS.

This Guidebook identifies the interfaces in the criminal justice process among the various institutions of the CJS and between them and other relevant governmental agencies as well as non-governmental security and justice providers and civil society. It elaborates on a number of good practices in addressing these interfaces in practical reform steps and identifies options for enhancing international co-operation in following a holistic CJS reform (CJSR) approach.
