NI: No change to confidence in criminal justice system
Public confidence in Northern Ireland’s criminal justice system did not change last year, according to a Department of Justice survey.
Interviews conducted over the twelve months to December 2015 found that 43.3 per cent of respondents were confident that the criminal justice system as a whole is effective, and 60.1 per cent said they were confident that it was fair.
The comparable figures in the twelve months to December 2014 were 40.1 per cent and 58.5 per cent respectively.
Department of Justice analysis concluded that the changes were not statistically significant.
Members of the public were also quizzed over their confidence in policing and perceptions of anti-social behaviour.
The Perceptions of Policing, Justice and Anti-Social Behaviour: Quarterly Update to December 2015 report is available on the Department of Justice website.
