Richard Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridgeshire Criminal Justice Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Cambridgeshire Criminal Justice Board should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Cambridgeshire Criminal Justice Board,

Could you please release:

1. Your board meeting papers (agendas, reports, minutes) for 2010 and to-date.

2. Your latest annual report.

3. Performance summaries from 2010 and to-date for 2011.

4. If not summarised within your response to (1) any correspondence from 2010/11 between the board and the Cambridge Community Safety Partnership on the subject of reducing re-offending.

With respect to items 1-3 your website states* these are published on the board's website, however they do not appear to be there. I would be very happy if your response in relation to those items was in the form of a link to the information on your website.

Yours faithfully,


Richard Taylor

Thank you for your request for information received on 20th April 2011.

Ministry of Justice no longer hosts or administer the local Criminal
Justice Board websites, so we are unable to update information or provide

I apologise for any inconvenice this may cause, but I will contact you
again shortly with an update on the information you requested.

The suggestion that the board no-longer has any control over its own website is odd, particularly as the home page contains a "Spring 2011" article.

While there is no notice on any individual boards' website that I can see warning the websites are not updated there is a notice on the list/index at:

These boards have a key role in setting policy for reducing re-offending. In Cambridgeshire, where I live, they are about to become responsible for "Integrated Offender Management" so take on a key role in policy/strategy relating to rehabilitation, reducing re-offending and how people on probation, or sentenced to things like community service or "supervision" are dealt with.

I think these boards ought have a web-presence, at least to explain their roles (which may vary from place to place) and publish their key policies and meeting papers.

The decision to stop updating these websites has plunged a large fraction of our criminal justice system into even greater secrecy.
