The Milwaukee Community Justice Council (MCJC), created by Milwaukee County Board resolution in 2007, is made up of Milwaukee-area criminal justice agencies and local governments working collaboratively to ensure a fair, efficient, and effective justice system that enhances public safety and quality of life in our community. The Council is governed by an Executive Committee of named leadership from key government organizations.

The CJC functions as an independent entity governed by key justice system leaders and is empowered to:

- define broad justice system goals

- monitor/analyzes justice system performance

- facilitate collaboration among justice system partners to enhance performance

- provide technical assistance to ensure adhearance to evidence-based principles

- act as a conduit between the justice system and the larger community

All without impacting the autonomy or decision-making authority of any criminal justice system agency. (Adopted 3/19/2014).
