Dade-Miami Criminal Justice Council

The Dade-Miami Criminal Justice Council was jointly created by the City of Miami Commission and the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners in 1978. This Council assumed all responsibilities formerly carried out by the Dade County Criminal Justice Advisory Council (established in 1972).

The Council's purpose is to encourage and facilitate coordination and cooperation between and among the various agencies of the Criminal Justice System of Miami-Dade County and to provide advice, analysis, and technical assistance to criminal justice-related agencies.

All Dade-Miami Criminal Justice Council (DMCJC) meetings are held publicly under the Florida Sunshine Law and prior public notice is provided before any meeting.

Regular meetings are held four times per year. Executive Committee Meetings and Committee Meetings are held as needed.
