As the Deputy will be aware, Justice Plan 2021 outlines over 200 actions which cascade from the Department's five strategic goals which are:

1. Tackle crime, enhance national security and transform policing

2. Improve access to justice and modernise the courts system

3. Strengthen community safety, reduce reoffending, support victims and combat domestic, sexual and gender based violence

4. Deliver a fair immigration system for a digital age

5. Accelerate innovation, digital transformation and climate action across the justice sector

The Deputy is advised that mid-year and end of year reports outlining progress on the actions detailed in Justice Plan 2021 will be prepared and published on my Department’s website which will clearly indicate the actions that have been completed, those that are still in progress and will also identify those that may be delayed and the reasons why. It is hoped that this level of accountability is helpful to members of the Oireachtas and to the public.

Justice Plan 2021 is available at:
