Justice Sector Reform Case Tracking System Activity
Ghana’s criminal justice system faces a number of challenges: Cases are not handled in a timely manner and a lack of communication within the justice sector has weakened efficiency and effectiveness during criminal prosecutions. USAID/Ghana’s Case Tracking System Activity developed a criminal case tracking system to support the Ghanaian government in effectively investigating and prosecuting criminal cases. The integrated case tracking system improved collaboration among key justice sector institutions, including the Police Service, Department of Public Prosecution in the Attorney General’s Office, the Judicial Service, and the Prisons Service. USAID/Ghana’s Case Tracking System Activity had a special focus on crimes related to corruption, border security, maritime security, and cybercrime.
