The Monitoring Team have two main roles in relation to the criminal justice data monitoring:
Criminal justice data are monitored via the online system, Criminal Justice Interventions Team Data Entry Tool (CJIT DET), collected on a CJIT DET form. We monitor criminal justice data covering each of the five areas across Merseyside (Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral). Furthermore, we collect and report on drug testing data provided by Merseyside police, data from Liverpool Restrictions on Bail sites and other criminal justice sources in Merseyside.
Data monitoring and research
We provide monitoring of criminal justice activity for the Local Authority areas of Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral. Reports are provided to the teams outlining performance at each stage of the process, allowing service providers and commissioners to examine their performance on a monthly basis and tackle any barriers that may exist. A unique element of this reporting is being able to report on drug testing data across Merseyside and link this to individuals seen (or not seen) by the local drug treatment agency. PHE do not have access to this information and as a result cannot comment on clients engaging with this process until they are seen by a drugs worker. In addition to routine reporting, we conduct ad-hoc analysis looking in detail at particular aspects of the scheme and conduct specific commissioned pieces of research as requested on a variety of criminal justice topics.
