Created by the Georgia General Assembly in 1981 as an Executive Branch agency, the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) represents the culmination of many efforts to establish a statewide body that would build consensus and unity among the State’s diverse and interdependent, criminal justice system components. CJCC is legislatively charged with eleven areas of criminal justice coordination. Among those responsibilities is to serve as the statewide clearinghouse for criminal justice information and research; develop criminal justice legislative and executive policy proposals; and serve in an advisory capacity to the Governor on issues impacting the criminal justice system.
In addition to serving as the epicenter of criminal justice policies, research and information for Georgia, CJCC has been designated as the State Administrative Agency for numerous federal formula and competitive grant programs. As such, CJCC aggressively pursues federal grant opportunities utilizing a streamlined grant application process buttressed with the very latest data and advanced technological support. Once the State receives grant money and CJCC awards it to subgrantees, CJCC methodically and diligently ensures accountability for these funds.
