Our mission is to assist in making sustainable, data-driven improvements to our criminal justice system and thereby improve public safety and community well-being.
We are a collaboration of elected and senior officials, law enforcement leaders, judicial and court leadership, behavioral health professionals, victim and legal advocates, and community leaders. The CJCC works collaboratively to improve the administration of justice and promotion of public safety through planning, research, education, and system-wide coordination of criminal justice initiatives.
The CJCC is implementing a comprehensive transformation plan developed through an exhaustive effort to analyze data from across the local criminal justice system, study racial and ethnic disproportionality and/or disparity, assess jail use, and review successful practices in other jurisdictions.
A criminal justice coordinating council (CJCC) describes a body of criminal justice leadership who meet regularly to address systemic challenges and to coordinate system-wide response. CJCC’s vary by location in their structure and membership.
