Milwaukee Community Justice Council

Criminal Justice Learning Series

The Milwaukee Community Justice Council is pleased to announce the launch of the first-ever Milwaukee County Community Criminal Justice Learning Series. 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 dialouge and Q&A with presenters in a cohort-style setting.

Applications will be available in early 2020!

Applicants will be selected on a first come, first served basis.
