Council on Criminal Justice
CCJ's mission is to advance understanding of the criminal justice policy choices facing the nation and build consensus for solutions that enhance safety and justice for all.
NFL Funding Supports:
- The CCJ Policing Task Force works to combat systemic injustices within the policing/community framework. It issued a comprehensive set of findings and recommendations targeting chokeholds, no-knock warrants, duty to intervene, and other accountability, enforcement, and training policies.
- The task force focused on the continued employment of officers who are terminated in one agency and then find positions elsewhere, providing guidance to shape effective decertification policies and urging federal officials to step in.
- It also encouraged agencies to consult best available data that supports transparency regarding changes in policies and practices, particularly with regard to how they impact racial, ethnic, and gender disparities.
