In 1997 the Ministry of Justice published a document entitled Justice Vision 2000. This document is a strategic plan for the transformation and restructuring of the justice system in South Africa. Justice Vision 2000 identifies seven result areas, namely the Department of Justice; courts and the administration of justice; crime, safety and security; access to justice; human resources development; the legal profession; and state legal and services. This paper focuses on the key result area 'crime and security', more generally known as the criminal justice system.
