Ep35: Election 2024 – will a new government fix justice?

Alexandra Kimmons

With a general election just around the corner, all eyes are on the parties’ plans for a new government. In this special election episode, our hosts Penelope and Rob are joined by Rick Muir, Director of the Police Foundation to discuss the parties’ plans for justice.

Will more police, more prisons, and harsher punishments fix a justice system on its knees? And will a new government listen to the evidence around what works to reduce crime and prevent reoffending?

This episode was recorded on 6 June 2024, before any manifestos were published.
