CJA and CJI to launch PCC briefing at party conferences

Looking ahead to the 2020 PCC elections, CJI and CJA are producing a briefing informed by an expert group of CJA members, which showcases current innovative practice supported by PCCs across the country. The launches of this briefing at party conferences will feature discussions with David Jamieson, PCC for the West Midlands, and Katy Bourne, PCC for Sussex, who will be joined by a range of voices on topical justice issues including Serious Youth Violence, County Lines and Restorative Justice. After initial presentations from the panels, the events will be opened up to all attendees to contribute to the discussion about the crucial role PCCs have to play in leading innovation in justice, and about the challenges and opportunities the future holds.

The events are free and you do not need an official conference pass. Please email if you would like to attend, and please state whether you have any accessibility requirements.
