The London Criminal Justice Partnership (CJP) brings together London's criminal justice agencies with other partners to shape and deliver a world class criminal justice service (CJS).
The Gang and Group Offending Handbook was launched in August 2010 and has received a great deal of positive feedback. The latest edition contains around 175 interventions from across London. Some of the additional projects included are specific training courses for practitioners for example working with Girls involved with Gangs and those with Mental Health Issues, and projects working in Accident and Emergency Departments supporting victims of gang related violence.

The London Reducing re-offending programme (Daedalus) Preliminary report has been published.
The Daedalus programme focuses on developing a new approach for supporting young people in custody through to the community. This programme is one of several initiatives within The Mayor’s Time for Action plan, which aims to improve opportunities for young people in London. The programme aims to break the cycle of youth re-offending by delivering intensive resettlement support inside custody and upon release into the community. The London CJP is working in partnership with local authorities (Youth Offending Teams), National Offender Management Service (HMYOI Feltham), Youth Justice Board, Greater London Authority and Rathbone (youth charity) to pilot the programme across London.
London CJP has commissioned Ipsos Mori to undertake a preliminary evaluation report of the programme, this latest report shows young people are having positive experiences through the programme. The report also provides an early reconviction analysis. We welcome the final report due in the summer 2012. This report will provide a full reconviction analysis and economic impact analysis.
