Countywide Juvenile Justice Consortium (the Consortium)
The CJJC is a community outreach program made up of key stakeholders from outside of Shelby County Government. The CJJC’s purpose is maintaining a direct line of communication with the Juvenile Court about community concerns related to the juvenile justice system, researching and educating themselves about those concerns, and providing feedback to the community in a manner that encourages transparency and continued improvements in the juvenile justice system.
The CJJC includes six to nine volunteer mayoral appointments and appointees from the Juvenile Justice Board. The CJJC is comprised of members who reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the County and, when possible, includes parents of children who have had delinquency matters before the Court and individuals who have had direct contact with the juvenile justice system.
The CONSORTIUM is here to receive community concerns and feedback related to the fair administration of justice for juveniles at the Memphis and Shelby County Juvenile Court. The Court listens to our concerns and takes action!
The Consortium’ s next meeting is Thursday, April 18, 2019, at 5:30 p.m., at the Memphis Police Department E.H. Crump Police Precinct at 949 East E.H. Crump Boulevard. Meeting agenda
Would you like us to meet with you or your group? Do you have any stories to share?
Shelby County's Countywide Juvenile Justice Consortium is made up of mayoral appointees who are community members with expertise and concern in the area of juvenile justice. Members may also include individuals who have interacted with Juvenile Court of Memphis & Shelby County, and/or parents, guardians, or mentors of individuals who have had contact with delinquency issues in Juvenile Court of Memphis & Shelby County. The Consortium provides community feedback to the Juvenile Court of Memphis and Shelby County and works toward reducing youth contact with the criminal justice system.
