  • ‘The CJA is a credible, representative voice and speaks with a strong voice to government about issues that affect us.’
  • ‘We benefit from CJA meetings where we experience first hand information and experience from high levels of the criminal justice world and government who we would never meet in our normal roles.’
  • ‘Being a member of the CJA sends out a message that you are extremely serious about your business.’

  • ‘The CJA offers an opportunity to meet up with peers providing similar and associated services and provides an insight into the political challenges we face collectively.’
  • ‘The CJA is a very worthwhile organisation and it’s tremendously important to pass on opinions and views experienced by the people at the coalface.’
