Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC)

In June 2018, Winnebago County, Illinois formally established its Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC). Through coordinated leadership, CJCC members work to identify and address emerging and existing criminal justice system issues. The Council works to improve and establish policies that are research based, technologically advanced, effective and work to break the cycle of crime.

The Winnebago County CJCC uses a data-guided planning process to identify, analyze, solve and manage criminal justice system issues. Technical assistance in the form of research and analysis is provided by Loyola University Chicago’s Center for Criminal Justice Research, Policy and Practice.

The CJCC dashboard was established to provide criminal justice practitioners, policy makers, community organizers and members of the general public with the most current data regarding workloads and activities across major components of the justice system.
