Criminal Justice Advisory Boards (CJABs)

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) and its Office of Criminal Justice System Improvements (OCJSI) are committed to encouraging and working with county leadership in their efforts to improve county justice systems. Criminal Justice Advisory Boards (CJABs) are the primary means of achieving this improvement goal. CJABs use a collaborative approach to formulate justice planning and innovative problem solving. PCCD and OCJSI assist CJABs in every phase of development including providing start-up grants, strategic planning assistance and project implementation support. Currently, 65 counties have launched CJABs.
