Published: February 1, 2018

As part of the National Criminal Justice Reform Project (NCJRP), Illinois is working to give state and local criminal justice actors the tools needed to safely reduce overuse of prisons and jails by supporting the formation of Criminal Justice Coordinating Councils (CJCCs). These councils are strategic planning bodies made up local criminal justice policymakers, practitioners, and community members that serve as a forum for collaborating on policy, programs, and operations. The 2018 state plan outlines the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority‚Äôs efforts to collaborate with CJCCs throughout the state and support collaborative criminal justice planning between levels of government.
