Washington County Criminal Justice Study

Through tireless advocacy by the community, including AJRC, the Washington County Quorum Court funded a Criminal Justice Assessment to evaluate the current state of our system. It was completed by the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) in August 2020. The assessment highlighted the need for a criminal justice coordinating committee as foundational to effect meaningful change in the Washington County criminal system. AJRC continues to advocate for the creation and funding of a CJCC representative of the community it serves to address the flaws of our current system outlined in the assessment. Contact AJRC to learn more about how we’re putting the pressure on our Quorum Court to remediate the findings of the study. Read the findings and recommendations of the assessment here.
