About the CJCC
The CJCC, a collaboration of elected and senior officials within the local justice system and various community leaders, has developed a transformation plan in order to safely drive down the jail population, address racial and ethnic disproportionality and/or disparity, and continually improve the local justice system. Charleston County is one of 11 jurisdictions in the country chosen to receive significant funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to implement these reforms. The Safety and Justice Challenge grant provided the CJCC $2.25 million and expert technical assistance.
More information about the CJCC can be found at cjcc.charlestoncounty.org.
