NCTCOG and the Criminal Justice Policy Development Committee (CJPDC) recognize the importance of assessing local needs and identifying gaps in services. Criminal Justice strategic planning is encouraged throughout the 16-county service area and NCTCOG staff are available as time permits to provide technical assistance for justice-related planning. Local priorities will be identified by the CJPDC and will be assessed during the application scoring process.
Grant application workshop attendees will be made aware of the importance of justice-related strategic planning. All planning documents submitted to NCTCOG will be posted on NCTCOG's website.
In December 2015, a Regional Strategic Planning Survey was distributed to NCTCOG Criminal Justice contacts. Results of this survey were used to develop the Criminal Justice Regional Strategic Plan. This plan will be updated as needed.
Existing plan documents are listed below.
