Access NCJA’s How to Guide for State Administering Agencies on Engaging with Local Criminal Justice Planning Boards

The National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) recently released a how to guide for state administering agencies (SAAs) titled “How and Why to Engage with Local Criminal Justice Planning Boards.” This guide provides case studies for four states on effective approaches to include diverse stakeholder groups in planning processes by engaging their Local Criminal Justice Planning Boards, often referred to as Criminal Justice Coordinating Councils. The four states—Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, and Oregon—each took different approaches but overwhelmingly supported the approach to involve the planning boards to enhance the SAA and the state criminal justice system.
