Each operation within NCJTC specializes in a particular set of issues critical to the criminal justice field. The training and technical assistance

About CJCI

The Criminal Justice Center for Innovation (CJCI) began in 1999 with the goal of using innovation to change how communities approach the development and enhancement of justice systems.

Services Provided

The cornerstone of CJCI's philosophy is reliance on community partnerships to develop strategies targeted to meet community challenges and needs. CJCI conducts trainings that help the criminal justice community analyze needs, identify gaps and assets, and create community-based solutions that ensure ownership, pride, and sustainability.

CJCI's earliest projects remain the cornerstone of the Center's work, including development of regional and national multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary law enforcement training, courthouse safety and security, as well as community analysis as a precursor to effective justice system planning strategies. CJCI takes pride in its close ties to the law enforcement community which enable Center staff to develop, promote, and deliver high-quality training and technical assistance programs that address today's diverse and challenging issues.
