Merseyside's Criminal Justice Board (MCJB) brings together criminal justice agencies on Merseyside with a view to joining up criminal justice processes across a range of areas.

Jane Kennedy was elected Chair of the Board at the first meeting she attended in March 2013 after becoming Police Commissioner.

Membership is as follows:

  • Merseyside Police & Crime Commissioner;
  • Merseyside Police;
  • Crown Prosecution Service;
  • Her Majesty’s Court & Tribunal Service;
  • Merseyside Probation Trust;
  • Her Majesty’s Prison Service;
  • Youth Offending Teams;
  • Legal Aid Agency;
  • Local Authorities.

Meetings also examine issues around recovery in light of the coronavirus pandemic, including updates from each agency on how they are adapting their business processes and ensuring continued partnership working so that all organisations can deliver their services effectively and efficiently.

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
