Implementation Reports

Interagency Group for a Fairer and Safer Ireland

The mission of the Interagency Group on Cooperation for a Fairer and Safer Ireland is to improve interdepartmental and interagency coordination in the integration and rehabilitation of offenders and the prevention of crime as recommended by the Report of the Penal Policy Strategic Review Group.

This report outlines the work the Interagency Group has undertaken since its inception in October 2016 to the end of 2017.  The Group has focussed on analysing the nature of the problems faced by offenders when released from custody and how better interagency cooperation could assist in their reintegration into the community.
