Office of Criminal Justice Coordination
The Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice Coordination coordinates the efforts of public and private agencies involved in the City's crime control, criminal justice and victim assistance activities. The office administers, monitors and evaluates state and federal grants to facilitate crime reduction efforts. The office acts as the staff of the Criminal Justice Council, which decides the allocation and distribution of criminal justice grant fund for Orleans Parish as the official "pass through" agency for the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement. These principal duties are conducted with an eye toward coordination of all public and private efforts in the public safety and criminal justice areas.
