Collaboration is not just about talking. It is about acting in a coordinated, disciplined and purposeful way to deliver results, and that is what the JPRC is doing.

The Justice Planning and Reform Committee was established by the State Government in 2017 to take a holistic, collaborative approach to making our criminal justice system work more effectively and efficiently.

The case study Working together for Western Australia to reform our criminal justice system (PDF) describes the work of the JPRC to deliver evidence-based initiatives aimed at addressing the growth of the adult prisoner population, delivering cost efficiencies and infrastructure planning.

The JPRC’s approach is indicative of a culture change being driven across government to deliver a high-performing and collaborative public sector that delivers better services and outcomes for Western Australians.
