Criminal Justice (CJ)
ETCOG's Criminal Justice Program has been designated by the Office of the Governor, Criminal Justice Division (CJD) as the responsible entity for criminal justice planning in our 14-county region. Under this program, ETCOG staff provides services that facilitate the effective planning, implementation and assessment of regional criminal justice initiatives.
Criminal Justice Advisory Committee (CJAC)
ETCOG builds the schedule for the Criminal Justice Program on an annual basis. This schedule is built around grant submission deadlines established by CJD and dates when the ETCOG Executive Committee meets to consider the criminal justice grant prioritizations submitted by the CJAC. Being subject to these two factors, the schedule may be updated from time to time during the course of the year. Applicants are encouraged to contact ETCOG’s Criminal Justice Program staff to confirm important workshop, grant submission and CJAC meeting dates. All CJAC meetings are open to the public.
