Girls in the Criminal Justice System report

Independent inspectors, including ourselves, feature in the joint inspection report published by HM Inspectorate of Probation.

The report reflects the findings of HM Inspectorate of Probation, HM Inspectorate of Prisons, HM Inspectorate of Constabulary, Ofsted, the Care Quality Commission, and ourselves. We contributed to an inspection carried out in Wales.

What happened?

Inspectors were most concerned to find that child sexual exploitation presented a serious risk to girls in all the areas visited.

These included ensuring effective liaison between youth offending teams and other agencies working to safeguard girls at risk of sexual exploitation, and regular monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness of this cooperation
