It also succeeds in placing the UK criminal justice system within an international setting through the inclusion of entries that acknowledge the global setting in which British justice operates.

The recommended terminology is intended to promote the unambiguous description and communication of basic facts concerning criminal and juvenile justice processes, agencies, alleged and adjudicated offenders, and offenses. Model data structures describe standardizable units and events in selected subject areas and explicate category and term relationships. Each entry in the dictionary provides either recommended data system usages, or a description of actual usages in the justice community, or both. A discussion of the role of terminology in data system development and statistics and of problems in the development and adoption of an unambiguous and consistent technical vocabulary is included.
