As counties face budget deficits, local criminal justice systems are being forced to use increasingly limited resources as wisely as possibly. A criminal justice coordinating council (CJCC) is a great resource for counties that want to gain a better understanding of their local criminal justice system, to develop greater cooperation among agencies and units of local government, and to establish more effective resource allocation. Join this webinar to learn how to develop a CJCC or enhance your existing CJCC.
