CJSB Member Resources

The Criminal Justice Services Board (CJSB) is the policy board for the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). It has 32 members who represent all aspects of the criminal justice system, both state and local, as well as the private security industry, the public-at-large and the General Assembly.

The Board is the approving authority for regulations DCJS promulgates pursuant to the Code of Virginia and the Administrative Process Act and it approves most of the grants DCJS awards to localities, state agencies and private non-profit organizations. We also provide guidance and feedback to DCJS in fulfilling its wide ranging responsibilities.
