CJC Public Policy Forum

Established in 1913 as a good government watchdog, the Public Policy Forum is a private, non-profit, independent research organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of public policy decision-making in southeast Wisconsin.  Our research and facilitation activities encourage elected officials and community leaders to find effective, data-driven solutions to pressing policy challenges, and promote productive, nonpartisan discussion among pubic and private sectors.  The Forum is assisting the Community Justice Council by offering its assistance to the Council as its research arm. It is providing its team of qualified, non-partisan policy researchers to attend Council Executive Committee Meetings and research issues and ideas that the committee wishes to evaluate or pursue as potential means to enhance pubic safety and/or improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the various components of our criminal justice system.
