Private Muscle Outsourcing the Provision of Criminal Justice Services

“This monograph explores the potential of outsourcing the provision of functions
and services, traditionally provided by the South African criminal justice system, to both the for-profit and the not-for-profit sector. What follows is an analysis of the concept of outsourcing, its risks and benefits, and a discussion of the South African government’s outsourcing policy.
Thereafter, the outsourcing policies (to the extent that they exist) and outsourcing
opportunities for each core criminal justice department – policing,justice and prosecutions, and corrections – is explored.”
