Ministry of Justice
The Ministry of Justice is known as one of the largest departments within the Government and employs around 70, 040 staff, which includes those that work in the probation service. Millions of people are known to use the Ministry of Justice’s services every year, which is why they need a large budget of £9 billion. They work with 500 courts and tribunals and 133 prisons in both England and Wales. The Ministry of Justice was first formed in 2007 and is headed by the Secretary of State for Justice as well as Lord Chancellor. They continue to work towards reforming the current justice system. The Ministry of Justice has eleven policies that they are working on at the moment to ensure that all political issues are dealt with correctly. It is important that the public is aware of how certain areas of politics are being dealt with and so there is no end of information on their website as well as much more available on the contact number for those that would like to be informed further. One of the Ministry of Justice’s main responsibilities is the prisons and courts throughout the UK as well as the safety of the general public. They are aware that re-offending can often be an issue and so they aim to put laws in place to prevent this and keep people safe. On the Government website, you can find a full list of their policies including those about re-offending and rehabilitation, as well as planned counter-terrorism actions and financial sanctions in the likes of Iraq and Libya. They have policies that deal especially with young offenders including plans and action to take in young offenders prisons such as an ‘early lights out’ policy, as well as their reasoning for this.
