Community Justice Council
What is the Milwaukee Community Justice Council (CJC):
The Milwaukee Community Justice Council is an umbrella organization made up of Milwaukee-area criminal justice agencies and local governments working collaboratively to ensure a fair, efficient, and effective justice system that enhances public safety and quality of life in our community. The Council is governed by an Executive Committee made up representatives of each participating organization and is chaired by Milwaukee County Circuit Court Chief Judge Kremers. Incoming Chief Judge Maxine White will replace Judge Kremers as Chair of the CJC beginning August 2015.
"The purpose of the Justice Council is to function as an independent entity governed by key justice system leaders that is empowered to define broad justice system goals, monitor/analyze justice system performance, facilitate collaboration among justice system performance, provide technical assistance and research, and act as a conduit between the justice system and the larger community without impacting in any way the autonomy or decision-making authority of any criminal justice system agency" - Adopted by the Justice Council Executive Committee on March 19, 2014.
