For the health and safety of attendees, the CJC has postponed its Criminal Justice Learning Series.
Pending COVID-19 developments and guidance from public health officials, we hope to reschedule the series for 2022.
The Milwaukee Community Justice Council was pleased to announce the launch of the first-ever Milwaukee County Criminal Justice Learning Series on March 9, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this series has been halted. There are discussions to resume the series in an online format in the near future. Please click here to be added to the notification list for future events.
Building on the successes of local law enforcement citizen's academies, the goal of this free, six-week learning series is to promote increased awareness and understanding of the key components of our local criminal justice system. Each session will include presentations by leadership and representatives from criminal justice agencies within Milwaukee County and allow for dialogue and Q&A with presenters in a cohort-style setting.
This free learning series will run weekly from 5:30-8pm for six weeks. Each session will include a presentation or panel, time for dialogue, and a free dinner.
Space is limited. If you are interested in the Criminal Justice Learning Series, you must submit an application to participate. Participants are expected to attend all 6 sessions.
Applicants will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Completing an application does not guarantee participation in the learning series. If you submit an application but are not selected for the initial cohort, you will receive priority to participate in future learning series opportunities.
The Criminal Justice Learning Series will cover the following topics:
Session 1: Intro to the Justice Council & the Criminal Justice System
Session 2: Local Law Enforcement Panel Discussion
Session 3: County Jail, Universal Screening, Prosecution and Defense
Session 4: Adult Criminal Court, Trials, Pleas, Sentencing, and Specialty Courts
Session 5: Milwaukee County House of Correction & Wisconsin Department of Corrections
Session 6: Reentry Efforts, Victim Services, Community-Led Initiatives
