Workshops set for strategic criminal justice plan revisions

Thursday, November 06, 2014

The Capital Area Council of Governments and its Criminal Justice Advisory Committee (CJAC) are coordinating two meetings for input on Regional Strategic Criminal Justice Plan revisions.

The plan identifies gaps and prioritizes needs related to direct victim assistance, juvenile justice, mental health, and criminal justice services. Regional criminal justice stakeholders developed the plan last year.

> Read the current Regional Strategic Criminal Justice Plan.

Agendas for the meetings will include a presentation and review of the 2014 plan, an analysis of data on past state funding to the region, and small group discussions to identify needs and suggest plan priority revisions. Topics will include training; direct services; education and outreach; housing, sheltering, or other facility needs; investigation and/or prosecution; support technology and equipment; and personnel support.

Criminal justice planners can attend the meetings at the following times and locations:

  • 9 to 11 a.m., Nov.  14, at J.B. Hallie Jester Building, 1801 Old Settlers Blvd., Round Rock, Texas.
  • 9 to 11 a.m., Nov. 19, in the CAPCOG Pecan Room, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165, Austin, Texas.

A complete analysis of regional input and data from the meetings will be provided to CJAC in December to develop plan revisions.
