Some of the major programmes the justice sector agencies are working together on include:
We can think about the criminal justice system (Police, Justice/Courts and Corrections) as a "pipeline". The pipeline starts with Police preventing and dealing with crime, moves through to the Courts where offenders are prosecuted and sentenced, and ends with Corrections who manage prison and community sentences, and provide rehabilitation programmes.

The Leadership Board is responsible for ensuring we achieve our collective goals. They coordinate major change programmes and oversee planning to improve services, reduce harm and the number of people in the criminal justice system, maintain institutions and manage investment. The Leadership Board is supported by Sector Group within the Ministry of Justice.
