CCJCC SELECTED FOR NATIONAL NETWORK

January 10, 2011 – Clinton, Iowa

The Clinton County Justice Coordinating Commission was unanimously selected to be part of a
new national network of criminal justice coordinating councils. This network will provide an outlet for
CJCC leaders and senior staff across the country to discuss common issues and opportunities; facilitate a
learning exchange among CJCCs on promising innovations and evidence-based policy and practice;
provide opportunities for on-going peer-to-peer technical assistance; and develop materials to aid CJCCs
in other jurisdictions in their development and policy making.

The project, the first of its kind in the nation, is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and
organized by the Justice Management Institute (JMI), the Pretrial Justice Institute (PJI) and the National
Association of Counties (NACo).

The Clinton County Justice Coordinating Commission was formally established in April 2009.
Although considered an independent governmental advisory panel, it is made possible and funded
through the ongoing support of the Clinton County Board of Supervisors. The Commission’s ongoing
mission is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the justice system in Clinton County. Follow us
