A National Voice in Criminal Justice Policy

The National Criminal Justice Association represents state, local and tribal governments on crime control and crime prevention issues. Our members represent all facets of the criminal and juvenile justice community.


Join Us for the 2022 Public Policy Summit!

The NCJA Public Policy Summit is a chance for NCJA members to engage on the national level with stakeholders, advocates and government officials who are shaping the conversation about criminal justice policy reform across the country. This year's Policy Summit will take place online. The agenda will include panel discussions, as well as opportunities to share policies, practices and ideas that are working in your jurisdiction and engage with colleagues on issues of common concern. A full agenda will be available soon.
