Milwaukee Community Justice Council

About the MCJC

Welcome to our website

On behalf of the Milwaukee Community Justice Council (MCJC, or commonly referred to as “the CJC,”), welcome to our website.

In partnership with one another and the greater community, we strive to ensure a fair, efficient, and effective criminal justice system that enhances public safety and quality of life in our community. We hope this website serves as a tool for you to explore, ask questions, and learn about the collaborative work underway.

The CJC was created by the Milwaukee County Board in 2007. We celebrate this 10+ year milestone by reflecting upon the transformative, collaborative change and strong relationships that have occurred as a result of this collaboration. A timeline of collaborative, local system change can be found here.

As a body of leaders, we value community input and participation in all levels of criminal justice priority setting and discussion. Please use this site as an opportunity to learn more, get involved, and productively engage with us. We welcome your feedback and suggestions.
