The Douglas County Criminal Justice Coordinating Council was recently accepted into the National Network of Criminal Justice Coordinating Councils (NNCJCC) by the Justice Management Institute. Douglas County is among 12 new member jurisdictions, bringing the total number of councils represented in the network to 40.
The Justice Management Institute created the NNCJCC in 2010 to provide a peer learning forum for coordinators to learn from each other as jurisdictions problem-solve challenging issues in their local justice systems. The NNCJCC seeks to provide a platform for advocacy and a national voice for counties and criminal justice practitioners that supports systemic, transformational reform in the justice system and promotes fiscally-responsible decision making.
“Our selection to the NNCJCC provides us with an opportunity to share challenges, solutions, resources and lessons learned in addressing pressing public safety concerns with leaders across the country,” Douglas County Criminal Justice Coordinator Katy Fitzgerald said.
