Peter Neyroud CBE QPM proposes a radical redesign of the Gateway to the criminal justice system, in order to develop a more effective approach to preventing offending and supporting victims.

This pamphlet focuses on decision-making processes in the police custody suite, the Gateway to the formal criminal justice system. Peter Neyroud argues that these decisions are critical to the operation of the system as a whole, and should be underpinned by evidence.
