Boards & Committees

Several boards, advisory committees and sub-committees provide governance and guidance for the Department of Criminal Justice Services. Below is a list of those boards and information pertaining to their membership and functions.

Criminal Justice Services Board

The 28-member Criminal Justice Services Board is the Department's policy board. It has representation from all aspects of the criminal justice system on both state and local levels of government, as well as representatives of the private security industry, the public-at-large and the General Assembly.

The Board is the approving authority for the regulations the Department promulgates in accord with the Administrative Process Act and approves most of the grants the Department awards to localities, state agencies and private non-profit organizations.
