The Department of Justice (DOJ) is a new Northern Ireland Department which came into existence on 12 April 2010 and was established by the Department of Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2010.

Company description
The Department of Justice was established in April 2010, following the devolution of justice powers to the Northern Ireland Assembly. David Ford was elected Minister of Justice by a cross-community vote in the Assembly and re-elected in May 2011. Since being in office, David Ford has initiated a wide ranging programme of reform to reshape the justice system and to build a fair, just and safer community in Northern Ireland. The reform programme will touch almost every aspect of the justice system and significant advances have already been made in reform of legal aid and the Prison Service. But a reform programme on this scale cannot be achieved overnight and the Executive’s Programme for Government sets out what the Department of Justice will deliver by 2015.
While challenging, the delivery of these commitments will make a real difference to the community - whether that is tackling anti-social behaviour, reducing serious crime or by positively engaging with communities who live near interfaces. Making the justice system both fairer and faster is a core part of the Minister’s vision for the community as are improvements in the way we support victims of crime. The Department of Justice has reorganised to deliver the Minister’s vision of reform. The Department has a range of powers relating to devolved policing and justice functions, set out in the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (Devolution of Policing and Justice Functions) Order 2010.
It is responsible for the resourcing, legislative and policy framework of the justice system. David Ford has set out a number of themes which encompass the key roles of the Department. Safer, Shared Communities - working to help build communities with lower levels of crime and anti-social behaviour, where everyone’s rights are respected, including examining steps than can be taken to address problems at interfaces. Reformed Prisons and Youth Justice System - fundamental reform of the Prison Service and implementing the recommendations of the.
