Paul McDowell, crime reduction charity Nacro’s chief executive said:“Nacro welcomes the Government’s criminal justice sentencing reforms. These proposals provide a once in a generation opportunity to change the criminal justice system: focusing on reducing reoffending, reducing crime and protecting victims.

“Today’s announcements are without doubt a step in the right direction. We look forward to helping the Government achieve their crime reduction goals, and will be working with others in the private, voluntary and public sectors to design new, imaginative and highly effective interventions that will reduce costs and build public confidence in the criminal justice system.”
