Regional Criminal Justice Community Plans

All Criminal Justice Grant applications must address a need cited in a Criminal Justice Community Plan developed by citizens of the county in which services are to be provided. H-GAC facilitates the development of these plans at the county level, which entails at least one preliminary meeting with the coordinator and several meetings with focus groups that provide details and statistics on gaps in criminal justice services experienced by the county.

Additionally, H-GAC maintains a Regional Criminal Justice Community Plan which highlights gaps in juvenile, victim, and law enforcement services for all thirteen counties within the region.

Below are links to the Community Plans in the H-GAC region and the name of the Coordinator for each county:
