The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council is a county wide collaboration between county, municipal and state criminal justice agencies and departments, treatment providers, administrative departments and concerned citizens to address issues and needs arising within the criminal justice system in Coconino County. The purpose of the Council is to collaborate and communicate the juvenile and criminal justice systems in Coconino County, identify areas for improvement, and formulate policy, plans and programs for change.
The CJCC recently has commissioned an independent review from the Justice Management Institute to increase collaboration and communication in an effort to improve our county's justice system. Overall, the findings from the assessment suggests that Coconino County CJCC has many positive attributes to build upon and that the shortcomings can be easily addressed. This is especially true given that the county and our partners are eager and willing to collaborate.
