Camden Criminal Justice Council

The mission of the Camden Criminal Justice Council (CCJC) is to identify possible improvements in the criminal justice system, develop system-wide solutions, propose actions, execute strategies, and generally improve the criminal justice system.

In carrying out the mission, the Camden Criminal Justice Council is committed to: 

  • Public Safety 
  • Communication 
  • Cooperation

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) conducted a Local Jail and Justice System Assessment of the Camden County justice system operation during February and March 2010. The goal of this effort is to enable Camden County officials involved directly and indirectly in the criminal justice system to assertively manage the local system.
