Criminal Justice Planning

Criminal Justice Planning Program Responsibilities

The Criminal Justice Planning program operates through an inter-local cooperation agreement with the Criminal Justice Division of the Office of the Governor to:
  • Establish funding recommendations with consideration of local and state strategies through the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee
  • Oversee grant processes and management
  • Provide technical assistance

Priority Ranking Announcement


After the CJAC prioritizes the grant applications and the COG’s governing body approves the priority listing, the COG submits the written priority listing to PSO/CJD. Based upon the COG’s priority listing, PSO/CJD will verify the eligibility, reasonableness and cost-effectiveness strategy of the proposed project, and the availability of funding, and will render final funding decisions on these grant applications. The COG will notify grantees of any changes in the funding recommendations.

All Grant Officials have been emailed with this announcement. If you have questions about the process or have technical difficulties, please contact the Criminal Justice Planner, Ruth deButts.
