In September 2006, the Eau Claire County Board passed a resolution creating the Eau Claire Criminal Justice Collaborating Council (CJCC). The primary focus of the CJCC is to enhance public safety in Eau Claire County through community collaboration, coordinated leadership and innovative criminal justice programs. They do this by providing rehabilitation programs and supporting the rights and needs of victims. In addition, the Council is committed to providing the coordinated leadership necessary to establish and foster innovative corrections programs for adult and juvenile offenders.
The Council also develops multi-disciplinary strategies to alleviate jail overcrowding and system improvements while making recommendations to the County Board of Supervisors on how to implement and fund the strategies.
The CJCC membership includes 13 elected and appointed leaders in the criminal justice system, as well as, 3 citizen members. Citizen members are elected to serve two-year terms. All circuit court judges are members, and except for the Presiding Judge, are non-voting.
The principal mission of the Council is to improve the administration of justice and promote public safety through planning, research, education, and system-wide coordination of criminal justice initiatives.
