The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee (CJAC)
The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee develops long-range plans and policies and sets priorities for justice projects supported by PCCD’s various funding streams. CJAC is chaired by Mr. Philip Damiani, Court Executive Director (Retired) and was created to continue the work of the Public Safety Advisory Committee which was supported by two subcommittees, the County Systems Subcommittee and the Local System Subcommittee. CJAC has two subordinate committees with specific focus and expertise to provide guidance to CJAC, they are the Law Enforcement Subcommittee and the Local Technology Workgroup.
The mission of the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee (CJAC) is to support a comprehensive strategy to reduce crime that prioritizes evidence-based policy and practice at every stage of the Commonwealth’s justice system.
