Video Enabled Justice (VEJ)
The Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner leads the Video Enabled Justice (VEJ) programme on behalf of criminal justice partners across Sussex, Surrey, London and Kent. A detailed business case has been developed to identify and realise efficiency savings through the adoption of an innovative scheduling and management service for courts using video technology. The PCC is working closely with partners to increase the availability of video technology in courts, prisons and police buildings across Sussex, in line with the national criminal justice reform agenda.
On 2 September 2017 the Minister for Policing and the Fire Service, Nick Hurd, announced £11m of funding from the Police Transformation Fund for the video-enabled justice initiative led by Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne on behalf of criminal justice partners across London and the South East region.
