The Scottish Government plans to update the Justice Strategy 2012 by publishing the Justice Vision and accompanying Delivery Plan on 11 July 2017.

The Justice Vision (Bib Number 58889) sets out a vision and priorities for a safe, just and resilient Scotland. It has been developed in close collaboration with the Justice Board and partners and is a collective commitment to seven key priorities. It describes the justice portfolio’s recent successes and current and emerging challenges, based on the available evidence. The Delivery Plan (Bib Number 58890) sets out key actions for 17-18 to help progress the seven priorities.

This Delivery Plan will be updated annually.
