This journal provides a unique single outlet on the notion of a ‘seamless disposal’, covering contact with the police, prosecutors, courts and sentencing through to custody and release. The journal considers how criminal justice institutions engage with the community and non criminal justice agencies.

Each issue includes peer-reviewed papers covering three areas of

  • Initial and preventative contact
