Who We Are

Justice Counts comprises 21 partner organizations representing officials at every corner of our nation’s state, county, and municipal justice systems. The initiative is led by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance and The Council of State Governments Justice Center. Justice Counts is guided by a steering committee of active state and local officials—from law enforcement, to corrections, to legislatures, and beyond.
