Behind Bars

Behind Bars is an initiative involving Staffordshire Police and our colleagues in the Criminal Justice System.

Its aim is simple: to keep Staffordshire’s communities updated about criminals aged 18 or more who’ve been jailed for six months or more at crown court.

The offenders featured may well have had a direct impact on the quality of life where you or they live.

That’s why we think it’s important you can find out what’s happened to them in court, and be reassured that the criminal justice system - which includes the police, Crown Prosecution Service, courts and Youth Offending Services - is working effectively on your behalf throughout Staffordshire.

Have Your Say  Tell us what you think about the Behind Bars initiative using the Behind Bars feedback form (Opens in new window) or subscribe to Behind Bars to receive email alerts.

Help check on the wellbeing of people being held in custody through the Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner's (Opens in new window) Independent Custody Visitors scheme.

You can now signup for email alerts from Staffordshire Police (Opens in new window), for the latest updates from your local police.
