Under the Accelerating Justice Reform In Nigeria project, and together with Hope Behind Bars Africa, we have come up with a policy brief  on the Review and Analysis of the Non-Custodial System in Nigeria. The use of non-custodial measures should not interfere with the campaign to decriminalise petty offences. There is a need for proper funding of the non-custodial service and one of the ways to do this is the activation of the Non-custodial Special Fund. Civil society organisations and other authorities need to play a major role in the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of non-custodial services. This document outlines our recommendations for reducing overcrowding in custodial centres. The full brief is below and available for download.
