My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor visited the Red Hook Community Justice Centre in February 2008. Recent discussions were held with the US Attorney-General in October 2009.
The North Liverpool Community Justice Centre was directly modelled on the Red Hook approach and opened in September 2005. The lessons learned from North Liverpool form the basis of the Government's policy on Community Justice Teams which are being introduced in 30 local authority areas across England and Wales.
